I have 3 children at this school. My son who is in 6th grade has been at this school since kinder. The teachers are loving and compassionate. Delia is a prime example of a principal who inspires a love for school and learning. Delia and the middle school principal, Ms. Rivera stand at the gate each morning and greet every student by name and with a hug. All three of my children are now fluent in Spanish and my little one is only in kinder. She is already reading and writing in Spanish. I am beyond happy and elated with this school. Yo recomiendo esta escuela!!!!!!!!!
My soon went into school with a speech delay/impediment aster olive year he was not only cleared from his IEP, but becoming bilingual in two languages. He us now a fourth grader and stays in after school program that gives him tutoring, play time and aces to clubs. They are a relatively new school approx 10 yrs old but are keeping up with technology and keeping parents involved. I complain that i wish the Website was more up to date but it's getting there they are doing automated calls with important information. You have the small community feeling at the events and even for a parent who doesn't get to be involved as much add shed like, i know who people are.
I think it's odd that teachers come to your home and do a home assessment like they are a welfare check. I've never seen a teacher from San Diego School District do that. They even offer to drive your child home in their personal car! That's just crossing the line! At a normal school you would get fired and investigated for something like that!
This school takes education seriously! the teachers are totally dedicated and are on site all day. They visit the child at their home, answer emails when we have a question. The school is giving our daughter tutoring everyday and she is soaring! The days are long for her, but we love that she gets so much help learning the language, which is huge for us because we are only English speakers in our home. The Principle is amazing and helpful, very approachable. The staff really loves and believes in the school and kids.
EJE is a great school, has great teachers, and great parent involvement. Happy to have my kids at EJE
I love that this school is Spanish-English but I feel like the curriculum is far too intense for a 5 year old. A 7 hour school day and an hour of homework is over kill for someone who is just out of toddler years. Though it is nice I am able to contact her teacher easily and keep in touch regarding my child's progress. Parents are also required to be very involved in the school, which is great but can be difficult for working parents. I am grateful that my child is able attend this school but just wish they had more realistic expectations.
My daughter has gone to this school since it opened. She was in first grade. The level of education she gets from that school far surpasses most schools. The teachers care if she succeeds and will actually text me in the middle of class if she doesnt turn in homework. The school offers tutoring when kids need help. The teachers are also very willing to listen to suggestions by parents. My daughter is in sixth grade and talks to me about colleges she would like to attend. I have nieces that are in middle school in el cajon who are only into boys and gossip. I am greatful to EJE academy for putting the kids first!!!!
I'm Jonnah, a student at this school for 2 years and almost everybody knows me.This school is organized and also is not violent.Both principals' are very hard working and they help any middle school and elementary students in need. My 7th grade teacher is the best teacher that you can have for that grade.The teachers of all EJE classes are willing to give their time to make sure that you won't fail in life. The curriculum for all grades is at an advanced level, tutoring is offered for those in need and the school offers sports and activities too. I hope this information helps anyone to make a decision to go to this school - my favorite school!
EJE is an excellent school for my daughter. The teachers are very dedicated to the students academic success, the goals are above state level. Friendly, enthusiastic environment to learn. The double immersion languange model that is followed is a great way to teach, it works. Absolutlely satisfied.
My daughter has attended this school since it was first opened and I have never seen so much dedication from a principal as well as staff. EJE is very family oriented and the administration keeps you advised on everything that is going on with your child as well as upcoming events. EJE even takes their time to call you personally just incase you may have any questions. It angers me that some people have said the principal lacks respect. My daughter had an accident on the playground last year and the principle stayed at the emergency room the entire time with my family and I. Also various staff called my house through out the whole time my daughter was out of school, just to make sure everything was ok. If this isnt respect and dedication, I can't possibly think of what is. Thank-You EJE for caring!!! You deserve 10 stars!
I have never been part of such a wonderful, amazing, and loving school. This school not only provides quality education, respect for people, cultures and the value of being bilingual but it also teaches that higher edcuation is important by visiting colleges every year. Also, every morning, all students state a pledge that lets them know that the school expects them to do well and have the choice to go to college. I have worked at public schools and the attention the students get, the resources and parent support is incredible. I hope that they will also work on the high school so that my children can be at EJE for elementary, middle school and high school. Parents know the goal of EJE. It is so amazing, even the parents that are complaining all of the time do not leave EJE.
In my opinion as a parent of 3 kids that attend EJE, Our principal lacks the experience and fails to act on parent concerns; however, the teachers there are the best.
The year has not begun and already the principal neglects to care about her returning students. This year will do it. If I do not see progress, I will pull out my two kids from EJE. The first year it was good, but now it is a zoo; however my kids are learning spanish. This school in my opinion just lacks respect. Respect to the parents and the community.
This is a Spanish immersion school in which children in Kindergarten and 1st grades are taught primarily (90% of the day) in Spanish. In 2nd grade, 80% of their instruction is in Spanish. Spanish instruction decreases by 10% each year until it stabilizes at 50%. My child began Kindergarten knowing no Spanish, and by the end of the year he was reading, writing, speaking and understanding quite a bit of Spanish. WIthout formal training in English, he was also able to read simple books in English by the end of Kindergarten. EVERY child in his classroom learned to read and write in Spanish by the end of Kindergarten. The Principal and ALL the teachers are very dedicated to their work. The school is like a family in the way it reaches out to parents and students. My child is getting a private school education without a private school cost.
best school ever parents like me would be honred to have goneto that school
The staff is very loving and caring. I trust that when I leave my son at school, he is in good hands.
Small classes, teachers who really care, kids are ahead in every subject, and they learned spanish in less than a year. This school is awesome (and we've had our children in 5 different schools because of moving). This one is the best by far.
My nephew started attending EJE this year and we are absolutely impressed with his progress. He will be graduating from Kindergarten knowing how to read, write and count over 100. I'm also very please with their program being in Spanish for the first 3 years. It is also very noticeable the effort that the entire staff makes to help each student reach their full potential. I give them high five!
