It is a horrible school. Both my children have attended this school. Teachers do not know how to deal with the children and to teach them effectively. Teachers choose favorites and altogether horrible. Not one teacher did we find kind loving and easy to work with.

I think we have such an awesome neighborhood school. Even before we came to this school we heard from parents with older children that we could expect great things. I am so happy to be very involved with both the PTA and helping in my children's classrooms. I wish that more parent could get involved as well. We have a fantastic & fun PTA group but I would like to see it expand because I know there are a ton of awesome parents.

Eastshore is an excellent school! The staff is incredibly dedicated and forward thinking. The leadership is phenomenal. Teachers go above and beyond for all children, not just for excelled or struggling children. We have a very strong PTA, and all parents are welcome to be an active part of their children's school life.

32 kids - 1 teacher :( teachers can't effective teach each child. For my son 2 of 3 teachers, since attending Eastshore, seem uninterested in the kids or overwhelmed. My daughter is 2 for 2 on getting a good teacher. In general I am not impressed with the education. So much depends on the teacher and the system has no way of removing or fixing bad teachers.

My son started Eastshore this week. Everything I heard about this school is true. I am very impressed that his teacher knows the names of all the kids (except one set of identical twins) at the end of the 1st day! The Kindergarten team works well together and seems to have a great curriculum laid out.

My child went to school here for kindergarten. Since he has some learning challenges the GE teacher frequently sent him out of class and asked him to sit in the back so it was easy to kick him out. (think - back of the bus) This teacher and the principal who supported her actions are still working there (although the school district had forbidden her to speak at our IEP meetings since she was setting them up for lawsuits). We moved to get away from this school.

Just finished first year at Eastshore (kindergarten) and it was a great experience. I found the educators to be top notch, the school in good repair, and the parents to be a great group of people with an appropriate level of interaction and involvement. My child is looking forward to next year with enthusiasm.

My child only went to this school for one year but believe me that was enough! The teacher was not very understanding toward my child and made obvious attempts to make him feel badly about himself. The teacher and principal used only punitive means to deal with my child without ever suggesting anything positive. I tried to work with them but it seemed they were not interested in working with me. The parents were also the unfriendliest bunch I have ever encountered in an Irvine school. We moved the following year to another Irvine school with wonderful teachers and much friendlier parents!

This is our second school in Irvine School District. We were a lot happier with the previous school. Teachers here seem less caring, office staff is extremely rude. I don't like the school culture here. They communicate with you only when they need money or school supplies. It has a very tense environment, you get the feeling like all school staff HATE parents. And you can't educate kids without parents help, I think school administration and some teachers are not aware of this fact! I have been education for 14 years, including 8 years of full time teaching. This school atmosphere is now warm, welcoming, challenging and so on. What makes this school looks good is the students profile. If this administration and some staff would be working with different population, they would have been failed so bad. I never left campus happy and felt I was welcomed as a parent. Teachers and office staff do their best to stay away from parents and not to talk to them. I think this school would be the worse on in this neighborhood.

How unfortunate that one person uses this venue to bash a teacher who is one of the best on the staff. This site is supposed to be place where honest reviews are submitted, not personal vendettas. Perhaps some self-reflection is in order - there are always two sides to every situation.


Posted March 22, 2013

How unfortunate that this site has been used to bash one of the best teachers at this school. As there are always at least two versions of any situation, some self-reflection is in order here. This person is an outstanding teacher, an upstanding member of the community and has every business being a Kindergarten teacher. In fact, it is her calling and her passion. Please do not use this site to voice personal vendettas.

My daughter started Kindergarten this year at Eastshore and for the most part it's been great. The teacher is wonderful and my daughter loves her. The office administrators are another story. They are very rude and condescending. Their attitudes are ruining it for me.

This is a great school. If you take the responsibility to do you part as a parent, the teachers and administrators will make sure that your child not only learns but excels.

My child went here for 3 years and we couldnt take it anymore. Bad teachers, mean-spirited administrators, and too much tolerance of violence.

Teachers are very nice and kind.They know how to teach a child in play.My kid love to going school now.

We have been at this school for 3 years and love it! The staff is friendly, the teachers are great (although the second grade teachers weren't super impressive) and there is a lot of parent participation and fun school functions. The kids have music weekly and are able to play the violin or join the choir starting in 4th grade. The instrument teachers are fantastic, especially considering they are working with large groups of kids. The school has recently been brought up to code and is kept quite clean. The sixth graders participate in a wonderful marine 'sixth grade camp' that is not offered in other schools in the district.

Great School. My son has gone to Eastshore for the past 3 years. I think it is an excellent school. We are so lucky to have a school with such a great music program. The teachers are great and the principal is great. This is an excellent school.

Eastshore is a excellent school. We moved down from Northern California where the public school system was horrible. My son my tested for learning disabilities and was given the extra help and attention and is now thriving! I would highly recommend this school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
