Eagle Pointe Elementary is an excellent school. I have had children attend since 2009, from kindergarten through fifth grade. Every single teacher that my children have had have been wonderful. They love going to school everyday, it's a positive and caring environment. I think it's the best elementary school in district 202. My children are fortunate to be students of Eagle Pointe!

Eagle Pointe elementary school is a great school where all students are welcomed and supported academically and socially. The school employs a tenured staff that has high expectations for students. Over 75% of the certified staff have advanced educational degrees. Parents and students like Eagle Pointe Elementary because everyone there strives to build positive relationships, communicate effectively, and act in a professional manner. The PTO supports the teachers and coordinates activities that involve as many families as possible and provides numerous ways for families to connect to their school.

Eagle Pointe is a great school where students are motivated and enthusiastic about learning. Teachers are encouraging and supportive of all learners. Eagle Pointe offers many opportunities for families to become involved in their child's education.

I have two children attending Eagle Pointe and have been really happy and comfortable with their experience so far. We have had wonderful, enthusiastic, hard-working, and caring teachers. The school staff is welcoming and helpful. There are a multitude of opportunities for parents to get involved, and teachers welcome you into the classroom. I feel very in touch with and involved in my children's education. We are thrilled with this school.

This school eminates a welcoming, family atmosphere, with a caring and capable staff. The PTO is great, and all our kids' teachers have been exemplary!! We could not have asked for a better school for our children!

I completely agree with the parent who posted on June 1st. Further, the school climate is not one of welcoming fro many parents. The PTO is a tight knit group that literally runs the school and excludes participation by 'outsiders'. This is the fault of the principal who has allowed it to happen. Our children have had really excellent teachers and really awful ones here.

If your child has special needs, please do not send your child to district 202. The classrooms in these schools are overcrowded and the teachers are unable to meet the specific needs of their students. If you have no other choice and have to send your child to this school, I recommend you have a family advocate/lawyer that will make this district understand the state laws/IDEA. This distict is clearly not compliant.

My son started Kindergarten this year at Eagle Pointe. So far, I am very impressed by his teacher and the staff's approachability and professionalism. My son has a peanut allergy and asthma. All the classrooms are peanut free and there is a full-time nurse on site every day. This is a huge bonus. The cons, as already mentioned, are that they don't have an orchestra or foreign language instruction. My son plays the cello and had been learning Spanish in preschool. We also would like to see the district offer a full-day kindergarten option like Dist. 204 in Naperville. Overall, we have a good impression so far, however. We can work around our cons.

My son is in kindergarten at Eagle Point and I am happy with the progress he has made in just a few months. I am very impressed with his teacher's dedication to balanced literacy instruction. In just two months, my son has improved GREATLY in his writing skills and has become a reader! I see him using the strategies he has used in the classroom at home and around town. As far as math is concerned, I see many parents are complaining about the Everyday Math program on this site. I feel this is an excellent program and I see my son already adding, telling time, etc. I am not only a parent, but I have been teaching 5th grade for ten years in a district which uses the Everyday Math program. I feel people complain about it because they do not understand the program! Great Work, Eagle Pointe!

My children are transfer students to Eagle Pointe Elementary and I have seen a huge improvement in their education in the couple short months since they started Eagle Pointe. The principal is by far the best I have met so far and the teachers are approachable. I would like to see some sort of foreign language be offered, either as part of the curriculum or as an extra curricular activity after school.

The new principal and vice principal are good, but the teachers are inexperienced and some of them are down right terrible. No sports or Foriegn Language instruction. Parent involvement is so-so. Most teachers are trying hard to do their best.

The teachers are at this schools are for the most part, excellent. Some of them need to be weeded out, but 95% are devoted and doing an excellent job. The new principal and vice-principal are problem solvers who are approachable and no-nonsense, which is a good thing. They truly have the childrens best issues at heart, which is a blessing. The parent organizations leave much to be desired. It is unfortunately, a situation where the same parents are involved year after year and that is not a good thing. The academics are good here, no differentiation for advanced students, but there are alot of caring teachers. There is an excellent art teacher and music teacher as well. No sports.

This school has a lot to offer each and every student! The staff is fantastic and very attentive to their student's needs. The classrooms are full, but that is the norm here in Plainfield. Our family is very satisfied!! There are plenty of after school activities...school specials incude Art, Music, Technology and PE. The level of parent involvement trumps any other in the district. Eagle Pointe gets an A+ in our book.

This is not a bad school, just inexperienced. They dissappointed us with the 5th grade, nothing very exciting for this transitional grade. Also very little rewards set up for academic achievement, not hardly a mention for being on the honor roll all year. Social environment of the school is very unwelcoming.

The classes are at least 30 kids, crowded, but no more so than any other Plainfield school. The Everyday Math curriculum that is used is very poor. I beleive teachers are doing the best they can with what they've got. As for being overpaid, I think this is a huge misconception. Check out TheChampion dot org for complete teacher salary info.
