Without a doubt East Elementary is the best school with the best principal. Sincing moving her to EES from a county school I realize how much the teachers challenge their students. They making learning fun. They are dedicated to the child and want each child to do the very best they can. They are well preparing them for the next grade. And the principal there is not a way to describe him. He is wonderful.

East is an excellent school with excellent teachers & the best principal on the face of the EARTH! I am very happy to have my children here,I just wish my oldest son could have attended East.I believe it would have better prepared him for CMS than the small county school that we moved from a couple of years ago.But,East DOES need to get some extra curricular activites,like basketball & cheering,like the county schools have.

As a mom of a 3rd grader here and having been previously in private school here also, I can say that East meets and exceeds my childs needs. We have learned so much here. the level of teacher excellence, knowlegde, and caring is wonderful. And the little things do not go unnoticed - the principal knows every childs name and is there greeting them as they are dropped off daily, rain or shine. We feel truly blessed to have found this school. Bjames
