If money was no object, would you pay about 20k/year to ensure that your child will get an even great education starting from pre-school and going all the way to 8th grade? I know I would!

Understandably the private school option is not for everyone, but let us just say it was for you – than let me tell you about a school, which I often recommend to home buying clients who want to provide their children with the best education possible:

The Dorris Eaton School walnut creek.

Dorris-Eaton is a private K-8 school with a coeducational, independent college-preparatory basis. With a K-8 campus in Walnut Creek and a preschool and junior kindergarten campus in Alamo, Dorris-Eaton embraces what is best in traditionaleducation while augmenting it with carefully selected innovations that are yet to find their way to the public schools.

More importantly, the low student to teacher ratio for the Walnut Creek campus is approximately 12:1 and the preschool’s is 10:1, which ensures that each child gets as much attention as necessary, affecting the learning process that is often reflected in the high scores that many of the students receive on standardized tests.

For K-8, there are specialized departments in art, Spanish, music, physical education, and computers and technology. There are after school extracurricular activities including chess, golf, dabbling in the arts, and sports teams for the 6th through 8th  graders. The school has academic teams that compete in a variety of subjects.

One of the most impressive aspects of Dorris-Eaton is the SAT participation and results. Yes, the very same standardized test taken by juniors and seniors in high school who are planning to go on to college and university is taken and had impressive results by seventh and eighth graders at Dorris-Eaton.

Nearly 70% of Dorris-Eaton’s seventh and eighth grade students qualify each year to take the SAT, and a high percentage of them achieve Honors with Distinction or State Recognition in the different test areas.

Dorris-Eaton sounds like a place where your money is well spent. Right?
