Eisenhower is a very good school.My son studies in this school and all teachers are excellent ,caring and very loving also.
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!
Great Teachers.Like the way they focus on each child,helps build their confidence.Good staff. Principal who cares for the students and works hard for their development.
There is an overall development of the child. Good teachers who can be communicated.
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.
It is a wounderful school with hard working staff members. Friendly atmosphere, strong emphysis on reading comprehension and writing. PTA is very active and provides support to teachers and students.
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.
Wonderful school with emphasis on academics. It also has an active PTA with great parent participation.
