    We relocated to the Lafayette area from another state approximately 4-5 years ago. We always wanted our children to get the very best opportunities within our residential location. Moving from out of state, we quickly learned that ESA offerred the best overall opportunities for our children. The one thing that we notice where the school really continues to struggle at is the lack of diversity! The diversity within this school is grossly over represented on this website. Overall, this is school has a really good curriculum with many different extracurricular activities for the children.

    I enjoyed the environment, classroom sizes, activities, and especially the faculty. The campus reminded me of a mini college with disconnected classrooms and tons of open spaces for the students to socialize, study, and/or play. The classroom sizes were small, ranging from about 5-20 kids, and engaging. The best part about the school was the faculty. The faculty engaged with the students, whether it was inside of the classroom, library, soccer fields, tennis court, or basketball court. The faculty's relationship with the student body is unique, and you could described the community as a close knit family.
    I loved the over-all environment of the school. The teachers genuinely cared for their students and it was evident in and outside of the classrooms. The language, mathematics, and science departments are exceptionally, especially the language department. ESA prepares their students for college in not only academic ways, but in many other ways. By having a small student body, ESA influences its students to learn how to interact with teachers, overcome social strife, resolve personal and professional issues, and caters to each individual student by helping them find their own personal best way to learn. This school offers a one-of-a-kind experience that will benefit each student through their life.
