Why did your family choose EMS?

"I LOVE what EMS provides for our children. Caring, community, connection, and prioritizing children’s well-being." — Facebook post by a mother of children in elementary, middle and high school at EMS.

"Our son has attended EMS since kindergarten and we couldn't imagine a better learning or athletic environment for him. When it came time for our granddaughter to start kindergarten, EMS wasn't only our first choice, it was our only choice."  —Robin, parent and grandparent

"Hannah has enjoyed the outdoor play areas at EMS. She comes home telling us about the forts they made, berry soup, and playing in the streams. Her love for nature and class time outside is one of the highlights of her day."  —Ramona, alumnus and parent

"My kids are so happy to be attending EMS! They love being able to be with their friends. It makes a big difference for them to have interactive learning which gives them a sense of community and support." —Melinda, middle and high school parent.
