I am a senior now at EKA, having been here since 5th grade. The school is a small community full of educators and fellow students who have a personal investment in your education. They curriculum has set both of my older siblings up for success, both now students at UNLV. I have gained research skills, public speaking skills, and time management skills as well. The school is dedicated to improving each and every year to make sure the students are learning at the very highest level they can manage. I am very grateful to have attended this school throughout my secondary education.

EKA is a tight-knit school. The student base is small so everyone knows everyone. The one thing I really love is you'll never feel left out. At my old school, I felt isolated as the "new kid" even after 3 years. Here, it's small but big enough that I felt welcomed and immediately fit right in to a group of students.
I went here from Freshman to Senior year along with my other two siblings and two cousins. We love this school. Its small, independent, helpful, progressive, and has given me so much experience and opportunities. Here, the students get to choose what they want their school to be like, they have a voice.
