Amelia Earhart is a fantastic school. We have many wonderful teachers, a very strong principal, and a great parent community. Our school is noteworthy for its unique math, science and music program. We integrate these three disciplines and have a full-time science teacher. All students in K-5 attend weekly science labs and review science topics and concepts in their home room class. The science education our children receive is amazing and on par, if not better, than private education.
Amelia Earhart is an outstanding school with very active parent community involvement. The teachers for the most part are wonderful and the principal is very supportive and hands-on at the school. We like it here a lot!
I started first grade at Amelia Earhart in 1979, and even had the opportunity to meet Amelia's sister when she spoke at our school. My daughter now goes to Earhart and is able to experience and enjoy the same enrichment I had twenty nine years ago! I want to thank all of our devoted and caring teacher's, administration, volunteer's and of course are awesome kid's! Earhart Rule's!
The education in this school is outstanding. I could see the achievement of my childern going to Amelia Earhart
Although my child is only a kindergartner, I have been pleased with the quality of education, the diversity of the student body, the fun and interesting activities and crafts and the outstanding level of parent involvement.
Parent involvement is at a really high level here! Although there is not enough art, music, and phys ed in school due to budget constraints, there are many afterschool and community programs available. I have enjoyed my son's teachers, and feel he is getting a great education and experience for a public school.
Teachers in Amelia Earhart school are very involved in children's education. PTA staff contribute a lot of their time to raise funds for the children's field trips, etc.
Earhart provides an excellent, well rounded educational experience to its children. The teachers are talented and devoted. The PTA is very involved.
Offers strong well-rounded education, emphasizing academics as well as music, art, P.E. High parent participation. Very good school.
Both my children have attended Earhart from Kindergarten. The school community is active and most teachers in the lower grades welcome parent volunteers. PTA raises a lot of money to pay for field trips, music, art lessons etc. While there are one or two teachers who are 'burned out' the large majority of the faculty are motivated and skilled professionals who genuinely love the children and put in extra hours and effort to help all succeed.
Over all we felt this school was great. Our child got a really good education here, the academic programs are high quality. The availability of extracurricular activities were wonderful. Draw backs: The school is too small for the amount of students and the bathrooms were poorly maintained. The biggest complaint we had was the Principal.
I would rate this school great in all of these categories, although some of it is due to PTA sponsored programs.
Parental involvement is amazing. PTA contributes over $100k from fundraising per year allowing school to include fantastic art, music and computer programs for the students, training for teachers and other programs for parents.
Overall, this is a very good school - but if you have a child with ADHD or one that is simply 'high-spirited' and 'full of energy' -- you'll need to be vigilant to ensure that his/her needs are meet. Parents are very involved and the school has a terrific enrichment program. It costs extra, but includes everything from Mandarin to Theatre to Karate. Teachers tend to stick around a while and it's worth the high price of homes in the area to know that the expectation are high academically.
Outstanding school - teachers are committed, parents are involved, and the principal acts with integrity - its about the kids, not pet programs. Students have lots of opportunities to shine.
This school is outstanding! It is a dream school. It has great teachers and parents, and the ability to come together and fix problems when they arise. Lets be honest and say that it sure helps that it is located in a rich neighborhood. My daughter loves it. She is great! GO EARHART!
Earhart good points: Involved parents, achieving kids, good teachers, nice neighborhood, many PTA provided extras. Minuses - Feels very overcrowded (built for 300 - but now has 631 kids), many portables, small playground, poorly maintained grassy field.
My son attended this school for 3 years and loved it! The extracurricular classes that can be taken after school are entensive if you have the money to pay for them. The teachers were very good and helpful.
