This school is like any other pubic school in Florida, it teachers to the standard with no room for moving ahead or slowing down. I changed from Sallie Jones Elementary in Kindergarten so my son could be in the enrichment program, he was already a grade level ahead in math and reading. He was moved back into regular class because his handwriting and phonics weren't good enough. Then, in first grade, his class was unruly and noisy, and he didn't graduate in the top 16 of all first graders, so not in the enrichment program, even though he could complete all the first grade assignments before school even started.

This is our fifth and final year at East Elementary. It is a great school with a great staff. The parking lot can be an issue during parent drop off and pick up, but most of the problems are caused by the parents not having their child ready or leaving their car in the pick up line and going inside creating a hazard for the children when other parents have to go around them. We will miss the staff here!

I love East. My dad went here and me and my sisters went here and now my son is going here. I love it all the staff is great and good with the kids. I would not pick any other Elementary school to send my son to.

I have had a wonderful experience with East Elementary for the last 4 yrs. My daughter is in 5th grade there now and she has had outstanding teachers, office staff, and administration. They are so parent friendly always nice. The pricipal and asst. principal are so good with children! I volunteer at school functions and just about the entire staff gets involved and interacts with the children. I can honestly say that I love this school and feel very comfortable that my child goes there.

My son is in the pre-school program at East Elm. Even though he's a student of Baker he is still considered a student of East. I find the school to be very limited. The parking is horrible. In fact I've tried to park in several different stops in the morning to drop off my 4 year old and I'm always asked to move my car. They need to put signs up as too were we can park. The staff there are not friendly. I find the younger staff are too snobby to say hello and the older staff don't have the time. I wouldn't send my son there next year. Sorry.

I am very pleased with East Elementary. The staff has been so wonderful, and kind. I have a fussy kindergartener, who is not very willing to go to school in the morning. The office staff, and his teacher, has been so supportive, in making his transition pleasant, and encouraging. My other three children, look forward to their day at school, all due to the warm welcomes, big smiles, and personal attention they recieve from all of the staff, as well as their teachers. I am thankful for such a safe, pleasant, and disirable environment to send my children to school. I have also been very pleased with the academics, and pace at this school. They are sincere about education, and the well being of students.

My daughter just started Kindergarden and the staff at the school is wonderful and very helpful in any way they can be. They encourage the students to do the best that they can. My daughter is very excited about being in school and has become very confident in herself. They have a wonderful PTO and Sac staff. The school has prevailed through alot of diversity in the last year with Hurricane Charley.
