All of the teachers our daughter has or has had at EPIC have been terrific. They've inspired her in her artwork, her reading and writing, and her singing and playing. The teachers are of an extremely high caliber. They are all highly qualified in their fields. There are regular parent-teacher interviews that get quite in depth; we also speak regularly with our daughter's teachers. We feel that they really "get" our daughter and are committed to bringing out the best in her while offering a caring and nurturing environment. The teachers are very passionate about the students and about the school. They seem to mesh very well socially and there's a positive energy they bring while working together and with the kids. They offer great support to our daughter.
The teachers are extremely passionate and knowledgeable. The year starts with a curriculum night where the teachers lay out the philosophy they follow and what to expect. I attended the curriculum night three times and learned something every time. Weekly update e-mails provide feedback on what the kids are doing and allowed us to continue the conversations at home about school activities. The teachers provide strategies to get information out of the kids other than "nothing much". The teachers regularly communicate with parents and are very responsive to e-mail and very available. The regular parent teacher interviews are very informative and the small school size allows for those interviews to be lengthy enough to get the most out of them. The teachers regularly attend continuing education seminars and post about it so we can learn what they are learning as well.
