This school had a lot of issues. First of all there are a few great teachers..and I mean a few. The other teachers don't listen to the students, don't want to go above and beyobd to help, do as little as possible and don't have time to hear the kids out when they need help. There is a HUGE bullying problem at this school and no one seems to want to do anything about it! Not even the school district! I have never in my life seen a school operate as poorly as this one! Most of the work is sent home and not addressed/taught enough in the classroom. The Music and PE classes are a joke. I could teach them better. Why are we paying for teachers to show movies and free play. There is almost no organization in this school. You barely get a weeks notice for things. There are not enough adults supervising during recess and there is a lot of fighting/incidents that occur daily! I have tried on countless occassions over 3 years to address these issues with the principal and have always been given the run around and/or been lied to on numerous occassions. I don't know why the district doesn't fix this! Sincerely, A mad and disgusted parent!
Eldridge Elementary School is a very nice school.The pricipals and teachers are working hand in hand to give the students a high standard of education.My two son are enjoying their stay in this school.
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 .
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.
