East Elementary School 5

As a parent of three children and with East as our third elementary school, we've experienced several schools from different perspectives for each of our children. Before East, our children attended two of the most highly rated public schools in the state of Colorado. Each school had a Great School rating of 10. While those schools were fine, our best experience by far has been our time at East. We were initially attracted to East because of its' diverse student population. Yet, we found so much more. For the first time, we feel a part of our children's school community. All of the staff know our family by name and the class sizes are small. Everyone - from the TAs and school counselor to the teachers, principal, and speech therapist - is passionate about his or her career and truly eager to make a difference in the lives of children, not only in their academic goals but in their moral characters. Our children are thriving and are challenged academically all year. This is our second year at East. I've open enrolled at each elementary school in which our children have attended and we've finally found our school home. We intend to spend the next seven years with East (our youngest child will enter kindergarten at East next year). Although I'd love to keep East our little secret, I can not help but tell everyone I encounter how impressed we are with the staff and how very proud we are to be "Dragons"!

I'd like to say thank you to Mrs. Card and Mrs. Maestas for introducing us to East so warmly and to each and every staff member for making the rest of the time so memorable for our family.

After attending two years of another Littleton Public School; my children are going into their third year of going to East. I have noticed a significant increase in their learning growth. They have been striving to gain more education after going to this school. The reading program is excellent! They have recently adapted to a incentive program to give children positive reinforcement for good behaviors. There are many caring parents that attend PTO nights, volunteers, and morning parent coffee gatherings. The staff is very friendly and always welcoming. There is a very good mix of cultures at the school. They even encourage the children to learn about the different countries that some cultures come from. Thumbs way high up for this school.

For a School population that consists of mostly low income families, East provides excellent schooling and produces high test scores

First off, the Principal is very professional and friendly. There is a good mix of young vs old teachers there. They recently renovated the school with new bathrooms and a top of the line security system. Outdoor cameras, access control and such. LPS district is top notch and is very serious about education.

New Principal this past year and the school is much better. He cares about the kids first and not just covering his or staffs backside. Like all schools there are teachers there just to be a robot (same lesson for the past 15 year and no flexibility) and draw there wage. But there are more then average number of teachers that care and try. This school is a core school, it has lots special programs and it draws from the district and not just the area causing larger then normal cultural diversification then other schools in the area. Very large apartment concentration in the area so there is a larger then normal student fluctuation making it more challenging for the teacher making sure everyone is on the same level. Lacking classrooms because of the special programs taking space. There is a great before and after school care and summer program.
