My child is receiving a great education. The principal, Mrs. Peterson-Klosa, has an open door to listening to the parents and students with needs/issues. She is exceptionally good with special needs children and their parents. I am grateful she took over as principal of Ebinger. Very happy with the teacher we have, and teacher's aides. Our child is doing very well and thriving in the Ebinger School environment. I have seen many parents that are involved in school. I stay at home, but bear in mind many people do have to work and do their best. Curriculum night is ALWAYS packed with parents interested in their child's education. Our school offers sports and after school programs. There seems to be plenty a child could do and join at school whether it is band or sports or even a foreign language program. D.K.
It's not bad for a public school. There is room for improvement. The good thing is the Principal, teachers, parents and kids all seem to work towards improving.
The community support, the parents the teaching staff are all above and beyond the norm! Its a great neighborhood school.
Terrific teacher committment. My child is in junior high and is challenged. He really loves school. The teachers offer extra help and truly want him to excel. Kudos to the staff at Ebinger.
Academics are #1 at Ebinger. Standards are incredibly high. Teachers are committed & hold students accountable (but need to communicate more via newsletters & web). After school includes sports, art, scouts, chess, choir, math & reading enrichment.
My child is in kindergarten and as of now I am completely impressed with the school, teachers and the PTA and foundation. Additional programs such as scouts and art classes have been great. Oftentimes though my child says they didn't have their special class today meaning art or gym and I don't know why. Her homework for her level is a good foundation to studying and following directions. Teachers are very involved and caring and patient. Principal is completely involved and at every event and participating at every event. She even answered the phone one night at 5:30 when I called the office. Not sure how many years we will be there as students seem to change quite a bit around 5th grade.
Great school. Education level is on track with the catholic schools in area. Funding in the arts is low,but fund raising is here.
This is our first year in ebinger. My son is in the 3rd grade. Conpaired to his previous school, ebinger is great. The teachers care, the staff is helpful, the school is clean.
My two children are both in elementary grades at Ebinger and I've been impressed by the academic quality at the school. They take a no-nonsense approach to discipline, and get the kids focused on challenging assignments and projects starting in first grade. With new leadership (new principal & asst principal in 2003-2004) the stage is set to improve parent communication and involvement and to raise the bar with teachers. There are a lot of fresh ideas among school leaders & faculty. On the downside, from a parent perspective, there's a bit of a cliquish feeling within the PTA, although there are other avenues to get involved (Foundation, LSC, etc.) Extracurricular activities are starting to be enhanced with new softball teams last year & an afterschool art class and school play this year. Standards like Scouts, basketball & reading club help. Overall it's great school, on its way to getting even better!
