My son is in K and so far, I like it. Not fully because he has just started his first year here but we'll see. So far so good.
My children have been going to eldridge for about 6yrs now , i have my middle child graduating from six grade . I love the teachers and staff there , i as a parent had to be strongly involved with my children as well as there teachers and the staff and my outcome has been Excellent , I love Ms Porter she is a great teacher and has helped my sixth grader tremendously.
My children have been going for 5years at eldridge and i have to say the teachers are great . I love my sixth grader 's teacher this year i can call for updates and help with her homework she is wonderful she always gets back at me with any questions. I do think that this school is one of the best in hayward .
the teachers are absolutely wonderful to the kids & parents. The academics are amazing & they are a Distinguished Blue Ribbon school. I would not send my daughter to any other school.
my big son just graduated from there & my little son loves it there - they have a great program going on there
My two boys are in this school and the teachers are just what you want for your children ( second Parents).
Both my boys have gone to this school - And I went there 30 years ago. The teachers and administration is dedicated to the students and providing quality education. The only negative around this school is that due to the closing of neighborhood schools many children that are not accustom to the strictness of Eldridge have been absorbed into this school and that has causes some havoc to the existing population of students. Behavior issues that have never been a problem is on the rise - but administration is on top of it.
Eldridge School was the second house of my kids for 5 years.We are really happy from all the support from the teachers, staff, and principle. Thanks to eldrige, my kids are successful in their new school.That is why Eldridge will always make a differance in our lives.Thank you for everything.
I feel the quality of the academic programming is excellent at Eldridge. They have a firm but caring principal and great teachers. I feel that each person on the staff truly cares about the children. I am not sure about the music, art, sports programs there currently.
As a parent of 2 Eldridge students it amazes me that someone could write so negatively about this excellent and successful school. The teachers, principal, support staff and the kids are just unbelievable. The school is full of kids of all nationalities, special needs kids and handicapped kids. A great school like Eldridge deserves the highest praise.
If you prefer your child to enroll in a militaristic style of learning, this is the optimum place for you. However, if your child is like a normally active child (by the way this promotes brain cell growth) and needs space to move around, send him/her somewhere else. I would not recommend this school. In addition to this, if your child has a handicap what-so-ever or any situation that demands more attention from the staff, please send them somewhere else. This staff, although nice; will not tolerate this type of 'misbehavior.' Good Luck!
My oldest son is just finishing up 10th grade and went through Eldridge from K - 6th grade. He got a great education there which has enabled him to be an honor roll student throughout 7 - 10th grades. My youngest son is currently a 5th grader there and he, too, is doing fantastically well. He especially likes math and is lucky to be taking part in an after-school algebra class for 4th-6th graders. Eldridge is a diverse student body with a lot of parent and community participation. It has a clean, safe campus. The teachers and staff really care about these kids and it shows! California Distinguished School and National Blue Ribbon School - these honors were earned and our children are the proof! My thanks and appreciation to you, Eldridge School.
For the persons that feel that 'Eldridge is not a good place to send your child if you want them to maintain their home language if it is other than English'. Definitely not true. Eldridge is not tying to keep your child from maintaining their home language. They are teaching your children to speak, read, and write English so they would be able to excel in their academic future in this country. Maintaining a child's customs, culture, & language should stem from the homefront. I'm speaking from my experience. I didn't speak English when I started Kinder. Now I speak, read, & write English. There was no 'Bilingual Program' back then. I still know my language & culture. It has been my job to maintain our culture (Mexican & German) to our children. We need to give our children more credit that they are given. They can do both!
Not a good place to send your child if you want them to maintain their home language if it is other than English. The program here is total English Immersion, which means English only. They have no Bilingual Program, no support for maintaining Spanish or any other primary language. The entire staff is against Bilingual Education. The staff is against any other language except English being spoken or studied. If you want your child to be culturally validated, receive an education that supports his or her home culture and receive instruction in more than one language go elsewhere. Linguistic experts have proven that primary language instruction combined with English language instruction; especially in the early grades is the best way for English Language learners to be successful academically.
Having two granddaughters that attended Eldridge, I can attest to the overall excellence of this school. The entire staff at Eldridge really care about the well being of each student. The school teaches to the level that each student understands. Both of my granddaughters left Eldridge to attend Middle school and were placed in the top ten percentile of the student body of their new school. I thank Nancy and all of her staff for the added attention that the girls received while at Eldridge. In my book there is not a better public school anywhere in California.
Eldridge school has been a safe, caring and enriching eviroment for my son to learn and grow up in. The teachers and office staff have been and continue to be amazing.
