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 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.
Ginger Storrs. Horrible expierence. Has no business being a teacher for this age (Kindergarten). Too harsh and brash. When she spoke to me and my daughters nanny she was very judgmental and rude. My nanny felt very uncomfortable. My daughter would cry every single day begging me not to go to this school. Horrible. Caused us to move out of the district. Enough said.
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.
Homework assignments daily. Fantastic Teachers. Great combination of discipline and kindness.
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.
Excellent school. We are very happy with the quality of teacher and student relationships. We are particularly impressed with Ms. Hoegh, the principal.
Eastshore is a great school with wonderful parent involvement. The teachers and staff care a great deal about the students, and the academics are wonderful. The school just has a great energy about it, and I think most children will be able to find success there.
Academic programs are exellent. Extracurricular activities are great and provide great exposure to kids. Parent involvement is satisfactory.
My son is currently a kindergartner at Eastshore, and we couldn't be happier with school's sense of community, balance between academics and socialization and its after school daycare program. Parent involvement is fantastic, and we'd highly recommend Eastshore to any family with young children.
I would not recommend Eastshore Elementary to anyone! The principal is new, without the finesse of knowing how to deal with children or parents. The education is not individual based and lacks compared to other schools in the area.
This school is one of the best I've seen. All the teachers are nice and so are the children.
