The Eliot-Pearson Children's School has received a very generous donation to its scholarship fund, made by one of our families, Mr. Robert Frankenheim and his mother Ms. Nina Frankenheim. The donation at the Eliot-Pearson Children's School will help maintain diversity and support families who may not be able to attend EPCS without the support of our scholarship fund, increase socio-economic diversity, family make-up, ethnic, racial, and language diversity and services to families of children with special rights.
