    The Episcopal School of Dallas Reviews

    In general I thoroughly enjoyed my time at ESD. Most of my enjoyment came from the amazing teachers and staff. I can attribute so many of my passions to the things my teachers taught me. I never once doubted that my education was their top priority. They all worked to create a learning environment where their students were comfortable and productive. Even if one feels somewhat uncomfortable sometimes with administrative decisions, we as students always know that we have teachers who support us and are willing to listen and help us. It's a little difficult at first to find the right group of friends but I firmly believe the student body's interests are so broad at ESD, there are people out there for everyone. Even looking just at clubs and extracurriculars the school sponsors, the amount of organizations that exist, whether it's baking, world affairs, Microfinance, or rock band club, you have the ability to meet with people who have common interests in almost anything.

    I could not have imagined attending any other school. My time at ESD has made me into who I am today. The teachers are caring, yet they challenge you. The community is like no other school, and everyone is someone at ESD. I can't thank ESD enough! I will forever cherish the lessons and experiences that ESD provided me.
    The Episcopal School of Dallas is a well-managed, advanced school that Dallas is thankful to have. The administration does a fantastic job helping new students assimilate as well as lending a hand to new parents. The academic workload is designed to challenge students to learn and understand when approaching new concepts. The faculty includes some of the best teachers in Dallas, who constantly sacrifice their free time in order to help their students whenever needed. The campus, including a beautiful quarry near the main building, is unique and central to student life. The Episcopal School of Dallas has an over-the-top faculty, staff, and students that combine to make a fantastic school that you will not find anywhere else.
