My child has attended Eastridge since kindergarten and we've enjoyed the school and most of the staff until this year. I do have to say that the 3rd grade C Track teacher Mrs. Wright is not the best teacher. I've worked closely with the principal to try and improve the situation but not much is being done. The teacher is rude to the children, seems to have very little patience and lacks integrity. Also, the bike rack is in what I consider an unsafe school zone because it is unsupervised and out of site. After trying to have that issue addressed, the bike rack still has not been relocated to a safer location within visibility of teachers upon school dismissal. I have even offered to move it myself to a more visible, safe location in front of the school. So, if you avoid the lackadaisical teacher and your child never wants to ride their bike to school Eastridge just might be the place for you and your child/children.

My daughter is in the 3rd grade and has been going to this school since kindergarten. She has always had trouble with math and reading. To me everything seems fine. It sometimes feels as if they are teaching things that are to advance for kids their ages. We are always trying to improve her skills and help her when it's needed. Sometimes it can be overwhelming for us as parents, so I can only imagine how my child feels. And now my son just started kindergarten there so we are trying to be prepared if this situation happens again. I am pleased with the school my kids go to. But sometimes I wonder if because it is cherry creek school district, if maybe they are pushing these kids a little to hard to maintain their good name. My child is in need of serious help with math and reading. I know her mind may wonder a little more then most kids, but shes a kid. And most kids do not like to sit on the same stoop for long periods of time. If any way there is help, please let me know. Thank you so much.

Very helpful with personal family needs and support! Just transferred from another district and as a single mother of 3 we have been put in a difficult situation, the school and district are helping our every need and concern for my son's education and transition.

I am very impressed with Eastridge. At the most recent back to school night, the principal made an eloquent and passionate plea to the parents and community to take an active role in their children's education and in helping the institution itself. My child recently completed kindergarten and entered first grade, and from what I see and am exposed to at Eastridge, I truly feel that the administration and staff honestly care about the kids and understand the priceless gift of education. It has never been more crucial that EVERY SINGLE PARENT take an active role in their child's education! The sort of dedication and passion I see from the administration and educators at Eastridge inspires and motivates me to do the most I can to support my child's school and to ensure that he is sucessful in what is the most important part of his educational journey.

I love my son's principal, and his teacher is wonderful! She encourages him to be great and do well in everything he works on. I have seen him blossom on so many levels. I wish she could move up with him until 5th grade. She's great!

My 2 Sons have gone to this school for 1 and 1/2 years now ( we moved in mid-year). I have been very impressed with the teachers and staff here. My oldest is advanced in most subjects and I have found the teachers here work very hard to keep him challenged. His teacher this year is fantastic, he really understands how boys think! As a result he is excelling. My younger son has also has an excellent teacher, she truly seems to care about her students and has been very helpful when issues arise. Because of that he is happy at school and also doing very well. When I compare the amount of personal attention they receive here to their previous school (Highline) there is no comparison. The principal and teachers are to be commended for their hard work on behalf of our children. Thank you!

I'm curious why this school hasn't been rated since '07. Unfortunately, our kids have become funding numbers & statistics. A lot of changes since '07-none for the better!

Sadly, this school has gone down the tubes! Once a shinning example for any school to look up to. The current the lack of leadership at the top has led to a sad state of affairs for the students and parents. Hope new leadership can turn things around!

I have not been impressed with this school. This school was nominated in the past but I see no evidence of it being a great school. Furthermore, the teachers do not seem to care about providing a quality education. They are more concerned about superficial things. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

I am amazed at how much my son has learned at this school in such a short time. The Staff is excellent and completely in tune with the children's needs. My son previously attended a Boulder County school which unfortunately could not even compare.

I think this school is a great place where children can learn how to excel in the future!I attended Eastridge since kindergarten and graduated the fifth grade.The teachers are excellent and the principal is outstanding!The ECP program has a lot of special activities and the school offers great fundraisers such as wrapping paper,Christmas nik-naks,and even coupon books.the office staff treats the children like angels and the honors teachers are really accommodating and helpful...they understand that the child has special and gifted learning needs.The after school activities are amazing.Not only only does the technology teachers teach children how to use the internet they also teach how to type.Not only do I love this school,but I highly recommend it!

My son has attended Eastridge since 1st grade. Up until this year, parent involvement has been super, and communication between the teacher & parents super as well. Not so good luck this year, but we're hoping for a turnaround soon. Academically, the school is excellent! Moving from a small town, our son didn't know how to read going into 1st as the others did. He caught up in no time with their Reading Recovery program and by years end exceled to a 2nd grade level. He is now in Math Honors as well, and I find that recognizes his strengths this way give him even more confidence in his school work. They have a Destination Imagination group that I'd love to get him involved in. It seems to do wonders for the children involved. I also really like their ECP Daycare program!

Eastridge facility gives the impression that they are more focused on their image, numbers and stats than their students. My child has been a student of this school for the last 3yrs.

Two of our kids attended here. Teachers taught controversial subjects without informing parents, and we were offended each time this happened. There were bullies. One teacher was sarcastic and rude to our child, and made her and her friend cry. My kids weren't taught at their level of need. When I tried to talk to a teacher about my concerns, she gave me a smokescreen of jargonese. We made other education arrangements for our kids. They are much happier, and are honor students now.

My son has attended Eastridge for four years now. We intentionally moved within the district and requested special permission to attend this school because of it's reputation. I have'nt looked back since. Eastridge is preparing my son for a phenomenal future by educating the whole student; mind, spirit, and character. The entire program, administration, educators and staff are exceptional!

We moved here from a small town of 3,000 and I was terrified of enrolling my 6 year old son in a huge school around the Denver area. However, when we arrived at Eastridge for a tour, I was astounded at how peaceful it was, and how much like home it was. From the outside, you would never know it was any bigger than the school where he attended kindergarten in our small hometown. They only grew on me more throughout the past year, when my son excelled in their reading program. I absolutely love how much one on one they give their students and his 1st grade teacher is a dream. The principal even gets involved in the children's reading program. My son was so excited the day he got to read to Dr. V. All in all..you will not be sorry your child enrolls here....it is a great environment!

The principal at Eastridge is exceptional. He is very driven for each of 'his children' to succeed. The teachers have also been very caring and knowledgable.
