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!
