Teachers are great. The new principal is good and putting some processes in place. Its the best school in the area. I have 2 kids in this school and they both doing well academically. The parking and morning traffic is a huge challenge.

Four stars for the inspiring teachers and parents involvement, especially in Art Vista program. Two stars for the new principle, who lacks personality and compassion. It seems as if she has a bad hair day everyday! One star for the lack of parking and stressful traffic flow. Can't park anyway! Open up the space behind the kinder playground or open an another entrance drive thru on Union City Blvd. There's free space of a half acrea back there.

Very engaged teachers, great support staff and nice facility. My kids enjoy going to Delaine Eastin. As a parent, we are glad we made that decision to enroll our kids here. Special shoutout to Ms. Curnow and Ms. Santiago... they are very dedicated teachers! The Principal Ms Knoth is really involved and personable.

Awesome school ! Great teachers ! Both my kids went here and learned a lot and had a great time. They moved here from a Montessori kindergarten, and I was skeptical on whether they'll get challenged. But I was pleasantly surprised ! The teachers did a great job challenging them. I try to volunteer once a week, so I can know what's going on in school, and I can only say great things !

This is one of the best school in union city location. Teachers help kids to learn things in a better way and easy way. No complaints so far and we are happy to send kids without any worry .I wish kids from this school will have better future .

My son moved here from a private school in Grade 1. SO far we are very very happy with the school. His teacher ms Curnow is wonderful and clearly very dedicated. She has a whole ready library from books she purchases herself! The school has a muic and arts program as well. There seems to be little to no parent involvement, which is good and bad. if they mandated it like they do in the Fremont Ardenwood and Forest park schools, this school would soar even higher!!

My twins just finished kindergarten here and I'm amazed with the progress they made from the beginning of the school year to the end of the school year. The school is great , the teachers are very dedicated . Yes due to budget cuts there is no more parent teacher meetings , but I never had problem getting answer for any question I had about my children progress .

You do get lucky with teachers, but it is hard on them especially with increasing class sizes from 18 to 30 in a matter of three years, I guess parents need to step up to help their kids more if they are not satisfied with the teachers. Also don't wait for the teacher to come to you about the child's progress, Ask!

Nice school. Good teachers, more communicating. Moved from North bay to UC couple of years ago. Saw some bad comments from parents here, not true. Like any other government organizations, there are bad teachers who are ready to retire and on top of the union ladder. The bad ones are the parents, dropping the kids on the road while the cars are still moving,taking u-turns where not supposed to. Bad example for other kids and don't even show up for any parent involved functions. They think sending kids to school means that the teachers will do everything not even care about any home works and blame it on teachers!!!!!!

This school has gone downhill. The teachers don't take the time to help the kids. There's no communication between the teacher and parents. You're not made aware of any problems/learning issues until you receive the report card. I'm curious as to how many deficiency letters go out each quarter. I'm sure there's alot due to the lack of proper teaching from the teachers.

My son is in Kindergarten and I have nothing but nice things to say about this school. His teacher is excellent. She motivates the students a whole lot and is the perfect role model I would want my child to have. The school has good facilities and a very active PTC. There are numerous opportunities for parents to volunteer and stay connected.

If you are not white or Filipino, this school is not a very good idea to sign your child. Reason being, the school will make last minute decision without informing you especially since the new principal is white. They don't listen to your opinions.

Some teachers in this school are very lazy and ask the students to learn by themselves exception they have questions. I've been to be the classroom volunteer for 3 months and observed my daughter's teacher often ate chips & drank coke and surfed on the net during the class hour while the students were in a self-reading session. Will this kind of teacher be appropriate to teach your children? I bet you have the answer already.

Both my children experienced a wonderful, engaging, and rigorous academic program at Eastin Elementary. My son had an excellent 2nd grade teacher and my daughter had wonderful 4th grade teacher. Both teachers taught my children to love reading and writing.

If your child needs additional academic support and tends to be shy/quiet, this school is not good for you. It is a large school with not a warm, fuzzy feel. It has been my experience as a parent that your concerns about the school get heard by the staff but with no resolution.

Seriously, If you care about your child's education, you would do the intelligent thing and not send them to any schools in Union City. James Logan high can be debatable. As far as K-8, it's a definate NO, you really shouldn't. Prime example is Delaine Eastin. Nice fro the looks on the outside but deteriorating on the inside, this meaning this Principal and some teachers. Take caution

This School is great and all the grades were good exept for 4th grade. My daughter got bullied, and the teacher doesnt do much about it.

3rd grade was a GREAT teacher experience. 4th grade has been SO disappointing all the way around. I also do not like that parents teach their own children. The bias is so apparent that it's ridiculous! Very sad to hear that really good teachers are losing their jobs just because they don't have the seniority. I think each teacher should be reviewed on their MERIT not their tenure.

What a fantastic school for all students and teachers.My child behaves very well and last year , he had Mr. Austin as his teacher. Mr. Austin was a great teacher for my child , and made him very intelligent for all areas.His test scores was great! He had many scores over average , and he always knows to be prepared for a test. I hope in the future, Eastin may continue to be a wonderful school for wonderful children , and also to thank Mr. Austin to make his third grade class a blast for him.

As an active member of the parent/teacher group, I have learned first hand that Delaine Eastin truly deserves the 'California Distinguished School' award. The teachers are hard working and truly dedicated to the kids and their education. Both the Principal and Assistant Principal are hands on and always available for the teachers and kids. Eastin offers a wide variety of extra curricular activities from music, color guard, choir and curves. Eastin strives to meet the education requirement of both the special needs and the gifted children with programs and classes geared for both. The parent support is tremendous and felt throughtout the school. Eastin's academic rating has been rising with each year that it has been open.

The teachers are great. They are very experienced and they know what works for the children. The overall staff is great. There are many extracurricular activities to choose from. The after school extended care is also very good. I see many parents involved at this school. It definetly shows that team work can help children.

Since this school is the newest in the area and located in the priciest housing communnity of the city, it tends to attract children from better-off professional families. I believe only few scools in Fremont may have higher concentration of education-sensitive families as far as east side of the Bay is concerned. This fact seem to surface as very high participation of parents. Teachers were very serious and eager in helping my son who exceled in math but needed special attention in English. Students are from very diverse background and with varied levels of achievement. There are many exceptional students but there are of course not-so-exceptional ones. And this may be a minus for parents with very high aspiration for the kids. Students of exceptional ability may not receive special attention that would maximize the his/her potential. The amount of assignments were probably average.

True learning, I believe, begins at home. But there is an inestimable impact brought to bear by each and every teacher. As my mother often told me while I was attending school, 'One teacher. Just one teacher can make or break a child because outside of a parent's influence, especially at the elementary level, the teacher is the 'second parent.'' With this in mind, I want to commend my daughter's third grade teacher, Mr. Epps. Besides our support of her, we recognize and value his belief in her. He has recognized her desire to learn. At the age of four, my daughter suffered, along with the rest of our family, my battle with breast cancer. This impacted her performance in her classroom and otherwise. Three years later, she is making strides and beginning to recover, along with our two other children, from this terrific blow. Thank you Mr. Epps.

Delaine Eastin is the newest Primary School in the New Haven district. According to a friend of mine who is a teacher there was a waiting list for teachers who wanted to transfer to the school. Because of this the Principal had a large pool from which to draw talent. I have found overall the school is excellent. Their homework load is more than some of the other primary schools but the kids scores reflect it. Additionally the homework is designed that parents need to be involved for their kids to do well. My son has reading difficulties and the staff have put a great deal of effort to help him improve. Their goal is to keep him in the mainstream classes and pull him out for tutoring for a period each day.
