bad curriculum, cartoons and videos in kindergarten on a daily basis, given the three and a half hours of overall kindergarten time. Really? there is nothing else to teach children but showing cartoons? Unacceptable. overcrowded kindergarten playground leads to crazy amount of accidents. No nurse on site leaving kids with no medical care or attention if accidents happen. Bad supervision on the playgrounds during recess; lazy teachers not willing to me sure the kids are not bored.

Eisenhower is a great school in Cupertino. The teachers do not put too much pressure on the kids or focus too much on the STAR tests. Most teachers seem to really want the best for their students and for everyone to be performing at grade level. The PTA is great and provides for the computer lab, music teacher, and this year added a spelling bee. The YMCA before/after school care is onsite and also excellent. An assistant principal started this year and is very involved in school improvement. I just see Eisenhower growing and becoming an even better school.

My son has been in attendance from K-3rd and will continue. During his education with Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary he has grown as a person and young man, as well as excelled in academics in this environment. The teachers my son has had, all of which I have made an effort to know very well, have been excellent teachers, supportive, attentive, and proactive. The other children that I know and attend Eisenhower seem to be great examples for my child as well - and overall I feel this is a great school.

Weak leadership, who doesn't take actions on complaints until they hit epidemic proportions, instead black-list a child. Immature teachers, who rebuke the child, have fainting spells or worse cry at the drop of a hat! Unfriendly and in-compassionate staff who treat a sick child as if they have the black palgue. Serious safety issues with no fence and children being left unmonitored in the outfield while the teacher makes her way back to the class with 'most' of the students. Below Average curriculum. The total credit for the school's rating goes to the dedicated parents and the PTA. The schools is just riding on that high!

I grew up in the Cupertino School District and went to Kennedy Middle and Monta Vista High School. I am very aware of the extreme academic pressures put on the kids in this district. The STAR tests results too often are the main measure of a school's performance when there is so much more to consider. Eisenhower continues to strive for excellence with its dedicated teachers, and academic cirriculum. Yet, the school balances this effectively with physical education, music, and art. Children need to have a well rounded education which includes all of the above. My son, who will be a 4th grader, enjoys going to school. His schoolwork reflects his grade level. He is active in sports. He's doing well ,and is happy and well adjusted.

My daughter studies in this school. We feel this is one of the best schools. She just loves to go to school everyday and she learned a lot during her Kindergarten. We feel very lucky and we are planning to send our son also to this school.

The teachers are very caring and do a great job, but the Principal seems overly sensitive and a bit short at times. Our child enjoys schools, and I would recommend this school despite the principal.

Eisenhower is a good school, the teachers are caring and loving. My daughter enjoys the school activities and PTA program. But in academic point of view it's little lack of grade level studies.

Eisenhower is a fairly good school, the teachers are caring so is the Principal. However, the office staffs are not personal, they seem to dislike kids and most of the people who walk in the office.

Eisenhower is an excellent school, with great teachers and a wonderful PTA. Teachers are always there when you need an emergency conference or just wish to discuss your child's progress. They have an outstanding GATE program, with book lectures and foreign language classes, my son had both Japanese and Spanish lessons while at Eisenhower. I would recommend Eisenhower to any families looking for a great school in a great neighborhood.

The school is ok with very little parent involvement. Teachers are ok but there is not much pressure on the kid to do their best. Music program is excellent. Other projects are very low. compared to other schools in cupertino, there is very little project and hands on work. Not very impressed by the events also.

Eisenhower was very poorly run when my child attended. The environment was unsafe, inappropriate, and dysfunctional. The principal, Liz Adams, was a poor leader who was callous about student safety. I was very unhappy about my child's experiences there. Academics were poor and were not tailored to individual differences.

This is first yr at this school with my 2 children and its been wonderful so far. The Teachers are excellent and caring and always helpful. The Principal and staff in the office is very hands on and its delightful to know as a parent that students in school can go up and talk to them no matter what the issue is. Excellent guidence is given in and out of the class room. We have a great PE teacher's in lower and higer grades. Very mutli-cultural which is great for kids to know people and culture from around the world. Field trips, library, computer class and music class are valuble to our children for thier process of learning. Great PTA and parent involvement circle. Its been great for my children and myself to be a part of this school.

Great teachers, my chidren like to go to school every day. The principal is always smiling and the teachers and office workers are willing to help. I'd like to see more programs like musics (introducing the instruments, fieldtrips to the music concerts). I know that everything needs more money, but in my opinion parents will be happy to help with musical education of their children. I use to participate in music programs as a child and it helped me to learn how to react to stress in a positive way.

It's one of those schools you walk into and you feel that it is under control. Accademic achievement and discipline is the focus of the administration. There is always room for improvement, but I remain grateful for what the school accomplished for both of my kids. There are 2 things that I've come to appreciate about the school: (1)even ethnic distribution; (2)the school takes part in some program whereby children with special needs take part in a lot of the school activities.

Eisenhower has a well rounded program. We have music in both upper and lower grades. We have a full-time computer aide for our state-of-the-art computer lab. We have a positive and successful PTA program. We have strong parent support. We also have great performance from our children. Our teachers work very hard a do an excellent job. We have the best PE teacher in the district. We have a vibrant GATE program. What more can you say?

Eisenhower is well-monitered by adults before and after school. Students receive music, library, and physical education, as well as standard subjects. The school is considering adding uniforms. The addition would create a more unilateral appearance to the student body, which I think is a great idea. The teachers and staff do a great job. It's a good school.
