This school lacks leadership, communication and compassion throughout most of the staff to include office and teachers! They don't care about enrichment or student growth, just the test scores. They are mostly unwilling to help or assert any positive attention when dealing with special needs children and I have had a few teachers even say very inappropriate things to my child without reprimand from the assistant vp, vp or principal. I cannot wait for this school year to be over so I no longer have to deal with this school! Or I might actually get him into a different school! Just because it's a new school and it looks fantastic doesn't mean the staff is subpar!
The vice principal is rude and only acts gentleman like in front of adults.I love everything but him.My fellow colleagues like everything else though.The prime principal is nice and is an all round good person.Though many of fellow classmates are failing or having trouble in math,they do have tutoring depending on your teacher. They also make us pick up trash for almost any reason.It seems as if someone took a breath they get 1 day of picking up trash! Today my friend got 3 days of picking up multiple buckets of trash up.Also one of the security guards will take your phone before school even starts or when you are telling your parents you got to school safe for instance.Though they make it look like a haven for students,it can be quite suffocating.I would urge new students to come because once you make friends it helps you get your mind off how strict the school is.
It;s a good school but I wish they had bigger parking lot for such a big size middle school. Also, they don't have basketball gym although they have "not functional" basketball courts mistakenly built ( I heard) outside.
Eastlake is awesome! Great school. Fun school with good teachers. And we get iPads! What else is there to say?
This is a great school. I am currently in the 7th grade right now and the teachers are very understanding. for example, I am in Algebra and Spanish classes and the teachers go through lessons quickly while making sure that we understand. the teachers also have a bunch of cool ways of learning and they make sure that everyone one of us are very organized, so I highly recommend this school because it really is one of the best in our district, and it's not just because Jessica Sanchez came here.......;)
The school is terrible, are you serious, have you been to inner city schools in Los Angeles. Come On this is Eastlake an upscale area in Chula Vista. The buildings at Eastlake Middle are well maintained, the grounds are taken care off, the students are safe, they have great teachers that care about how well the students are doing and offer after school tutoring at no extra cost, they have a music program and physical education. I think people only get on these sites to complain because they have nothing better to do. As far as a public education goes this school is by far one of the best! My son is proud of attending Eastlake Middle.
This school it terrible. The principal is not in control of the teachers conduct and the teachers are not qualified to teach their subjects. Most teachers are ESL or ELD teachers, not general education.
The higher administrators at Eastlake Middle are very inconsistent and unfair with their policies. They don't get their facts straight before they apply any discipline with their students, including the fact that they allow their teachers to belittle the students and get away with remarks such as calling them "lazy cows". Fortunately, my child won't be attending this school anymore. I would highly reconsider enrolling your children at this school.
Eastlake has been a great school for my kids and im sure it has been a great schhol for many others it offers good electives and outside school activitys
I love communication between parents and teachers. They are alway there to answer questions and concerns with your kids success.
Eastlake Middle school is a great school. I think it is missing more academic clubs.
Great school, teachers seem they love their work and help students for their best development. Music class (orquestra) is very good, children learn how fun music can be with the extraordinary teacher they have. The principal is very responsible and involved with the needs of children, at the time of fires I can see how she were personally verifying the security of all the children when they have to leave. If the school had a better after school program it will be excellent. My son enjoys attending this school since the classes began until today.
Good school but not enough support for children with special needs. Administration is not willing to work with community resources to offer a good after school program for children with special needs. Psychologist not listening to parents' wishes as far as helping socialization of their children.
It's so refreshing to go to a school where all teachers are willing to do anything possible to help your child succeed. The teachers obviously love their environment and their kids as all are excited to teach- no jaded teachers here. My daughter has had absolutely not a single negative issue so far (8th grade this year). Excellent before/after school tutoring, leadership, technology, quality of education.
This school is such a tremendous campus full of ready-to-learn students and willful teachers. It's a pleasure to attend this sort of educational environment.
I love this school. Its awesome. They allow the pupils be a voice in the school. They have the grand test scores also. If your child were to go to a public middle school I would advise you go to this one this one.
Academic programs are good and teachers generally are well trained and responsive. Administration and the guidance department however are quite ineffective. They do very little to develop teamwork with parents. There is little offered for art, a decent music program and some good extracurricular activities.
This school has great music, art, sports and extracurricular activities. Preparation for college is a priority at this school - Programs like 'Compact for Success' prepares them early for college. Also, ELM and Chula Vista police's have a wonderful partnership to combat violence and bullying in this school district. I don't know of any other schools in San Diego that has so many excellent programs. And most importantly, my child enjoys attending this school.
