We are entering our second year at ELE and we could not be happier. This school has really embraced our family and has provided the support we needed for our child to grow academically and personally. We settled in quick and our son was able to easily make new friendships within days. We can't say enough about the administration at ELE. Dr. Eisenberg is a great representative of what an educator and administrator should be. He is kind and understanding to each student and applies common sense to each situation, something that is sadly lacking in a lot of "one size fits all" public education facilities. Parental participation is huge here and there are many ways to get involved, whether with the PTO or personal volunteering in each classroom. We are always trying to find new ways to raise the bar and make things even better for our children. School pride runs deep and that's apparent in the students, administration, and parents. ELE out preforms most other schools in each test area and there is a great deal of pride in knowing that hard work and dedication pays off for our children and their future. When you look at all factors, ELE is a very well-rounded school! GO EAGLES!!

This is a great school. The Principal demonstrates great leadership skills and is accessible and engaging. The teachers are of a high standard and are always willing to go above and beyond to ensure your child has a positive and effective learning experience. The after school programs offer much in the way of enrichment and parent participation is outstanding

This is a great school. The teachers are very committed to teaching especially life skills. My son's teacher, Mrs. Crerie, is the best 3rd\4th grade teacher I know. Overall the school is great for a public school.

I love East Lake Elementary! My son went here, he is now at Union Grove High. My daughter is currently at East Lake in the 2nd grade. I love the communication that I receive from her teacher, as well as, the parent teacher communication I received when my son attended there!

My daughter attended East Lake in Kindergarten and 1st Grade (years beginning in 2003 and 2004). She did well academically, however I was concerned with the lack of diversity at the school. I often wondered why the only people that looked like her at the school were either pushing a broom or wearing a hair net. I moved her into a significantly smaller private school, not 3 miles away. This school has a much greater committment to diversity. I moved to this area because of the wonderful reputation for the schools in the district (East Lake Elementary, Union Grove Middle, & Union Grove High). I have been disappointed in all schools.

It has been a roller coaster ride. The Saxon Phonics were implemented then stopped in the first few weeks. Percentiles are given with no sign of remediation or reinforcement theory.In other words percentiles appear to intimidate the parents into doing the teaching. My child said she had no reading groups all year only choral reading and in large groups. There was no evidence on day one hundred of any people measuring in the hallways, only one class. There are no Math nights or reading nights. The parent communication is very confusing at times with not enough information given. The principal and assistant are unprofessional at times in talking to parents. My childs SST report was written up majorly biased.

Eastlake is a great place to learn. The teachers are excited about what they do. The parents are heavily involved and the administation listens and cares. The students are excited about learning and take great pride in their school. Eastlake bands together to accomplish great things - we were the number 1 school in giving to Relay for Life last year (over $16,000) using student led fund-raising. I could think of no better place for my children than Eastlake Elementary.
