Just Awful. Couldn't get zone transfer for my child because it was too late in the year. When I tried sharing my concern as a parent to staff (secretary-she wanted to know why I needed to speak to vice principal, to the vice principal,and to principal) they were bothered that I had a complaint. They were all defensive and pointed the finger that the problem was either with my child, myself,or at home...not with the teacher or their "methods" of teaching. Parents, don't feel as if you and your child have to stay their because of where you live. I called the School District, and they were so helpful. I was given information I did not know about.

I feel that the majority of the comments like the previous poster had mentioned are from the past. This school has grown a lot. I had the privilege of attending the middle school opening and the superintendent of the district made a great speech in which he highlighted that just 10 years ago, Feaster was one of the worst performing schools in the district and that not it ranks in the top 10 percentile of schools. What an accomplishment. The new principal has given the school his vision of implementing the STEM and VAPA academies. There is so many after school programs, all students at the school have 1:1 technology (an iPad or an iPod). My students teacher, I can't say enough of her work and dedication to my daughter. This is the only school in the district to also offer electives for students at the end of the day, like in high school. Overall a fantastic school. Can't wait to see what else this school has to offer.

This school I find pretty great. Most of these negative comments are from years ago but the school has changed a lot in the 2013-2014 school year. They have added the STEM and VAPA Academy and they have finished building Feaster Charter Middle! The school has great technology resources. Great school!

Ive had children in this school for 8 years now and have gone through three principals. We've seen a lot and been through a lot but what we've witnessed with the new administration is a travesty. The new Principal has no regard for the students or parents and cares only about what you see on the surface, new paint and some murals and he pretends it's all great, meanwhile the students are suffering and he is not interested. Previously thriving students are now performing below average in several classrooms and neither the teachers nor the Principals seem to mind or want the children to perform at the higher levels they're known for. My children will not be attending here next year, and perhaps not even next semester!

Feaster pre school (((( BEWARE ))) Mrs. Garcia wow not a good person at all what a big FAKE ACTOR OMG. As soon as the parents walk in she acts charming and sweet, but behind closed doors she is very serious, stern and strict. Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT ENROLL YOUR CHILD HERE. Principal cant do anything about it. This school lacks structure.

I have raised two children and have gone through quite a few school systems. This year I was blessed with raising my Grandson. Feester was his home school since Kindergarten. However I live in another city. I personally did not want to uproot him from all the kids was familiar with in the beginning of his 1st grade year, since he was having a difficult time emotionally. The woman in the office Marta went above and beyond her job to get all the paperwork I needed to help keep him there. They helped me get him in the after school program so I could work. The teacher my grandson had was young and full of wonderful imaginative ideas for learning. My Grandson at the end of 1st grade had a wonderful report card in a time in his life when things were he was feeling insecure and afraid. I love this school. There are not many teachers or school workers that will go that extra mile and give a child the love that my Grandson has received. It has been my personal experience that this is a school that cares about their pupils. As parents, isn't this all we really ask for? A school that cares for our children academically but also for their emotional well being.

My daughter had a wonderful experience and learned a lot in her three years at Feaster. I was very happy with all of her teachers, the staff, and the principal. Everyone at Feaster was dedicated to helping the children learn. There were also some wonderful afterschool programs, like GATE, band, and choir.

I am posting my review after observing issues and changes that have taken place since my last review. For one, my daughter has had the priviledge of teachers that are very in tune with the kids. I would love to see lower class numbers as I think the children would excel better. My daughter has not complained of disciplinary problems with problem students so hopefully this is down. I believe the children are doing better because of the parental involvement with their children at home. I will slowly rate this school back to where I think it should be. As for rudeness from the staff, though the school is predominantly Hispanic, they are very polite to me and have always made me feel welcome.

I'm glad to finally see some positive comments and hear from someone who knows the standards and class size are determined by the state. The principal and teachers do care! As usual, only those that want to stand on the sidelines and complain are the ones that write. You don't like it- do something about it!

I love Feaster Edison. My children have learned more here at this school than any other school. The staff and teachers really care and love our children. In their eyes our children come first and they know that our children are our future.

I haven't seen any comments for Special Education, so I have to tell you that my daughter who is in 2nd grade special Ed is receiving, in my opinion a 1st class education thanks to her superb teacher Mrs.Wicoff & her Aide Ms. White. I receive phone calls, & notes to update my daughter's progress. The Office staff I have found to be Courteous, & helpful.

My son has been going to Feaster for 2 years now. The curriculum is way below what fifth grader should be learning. There is no desire on part of the principal to do anything to benefit the students as far as enriching their academic level mor than subpar.

My two daughters went to this school. One from first to fourth and the other from fourth to sixth. Since the new principal took over two years ago, the school has gone down hill. The good teachers have all left. Bad school.

My son has been going to Feaster since K1, which now he would go into 2nd grade. I was extremely happy his first year of schooling, his second year I'm not too happy with. They began to fill the classes up with too many students and when the time came to put students into new classes with new teachers they moved my son, which was an honor roll student instead of placing the new students there. My son's grade went down, he stopped paying attention to class and did not want to go to school. That could have been prevented. I talk to the principal and he did not do anything about it. The year ended and I don't believe that my son advance as much as he should have. Hopefully this year they make it up. We ll see what happens.

I am very pleased with the teachers my boys have had. My oldest has been attending since 2003 & my youngest,2006. All the teachers that I have had the pleasure of dealing with, have presented a great effort in my children's education. They all have gone above & beyond. The fact that they offer so many extracurricular activities is a +. I do have 2 complaints, one is the fact that they don't enforce as much as they should the uniform policy. Second, the office staff slacks off, I've been given wrong information several times. & they also come off as being rude, a smiling face, when you walk in the office would be nice.

I would not recommend this school for other kids. My dtr goes to first grade there and the teachers have to many kids to pay enough attention to the students. I am not satisfied with her here and will request to change schools next year. The secretorail staff is very rude and not to helpful. The teacher herself is a great teacher.She has no fault for all the kids they give her.

This school has a change of leadership about every two to three years.This administrative change makes it difficult on the teachers and the students.The leadership is always reinventing the wheel instead of trying to build upon the programs and strengths of what is already in place.

While my kids attended this school I was very happy with their performance. They were involved with different teachers for every subject and had a vast area of subjects covered, from Music to Spanish. The availability of extra curricular activities was also a plus. The kids had many field trips and the onsite after school program had many sports to choose from that the school played against other elementaries in the district as well as an after school program for the kids whose parents could not pick them up right away. We enjoyed our time their and were sad when we moved to another part of the city. I highly recommend this school for all kids.

I am very happy that my sons' attended this school. I have been involved with my sons' teachers since they were in Kindergarden. My oldest son was just promoted to 7th grade this year, June 2004. My other son has two more years at Feaster. All of sons' teachers have been great teachers, and each teacher made an impact on my sons'. From their Kindergarden teachers to their music, art, PE(you guys are great), world language, SFA, and 6th grade teacher. I've had a good experience being involved at this school. Thank you to all the staff at Feaster-Edison.

This school is a disappointment. The teachers are careless, the personal is rude and the worse they don't provide education according to the requirements, I am so very sorry that my kid had to spend a year in under their 'system'.
