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!!
I really like teachers in this school. I have difficult time work with school principal.
Delaine Eastin is one of the best learning institutions for elementary students. The teachers are extremely professional. The communication is great. The curriculum is great and helps students advance to the next great level.
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
I like the school the teachers the one they need some work my daughter always complain some kids bullying her and the teacher dont do sh*t and my daughter always say shes missing a pen or other stuff and she told the teacher the teacher again dont do sh*t teacher just said look for it and i dont like some of the people who work in kids first.
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.
