My family moved to eastern hancock school system in the middle of last year. We absolutely love the teachers from last year and this year! They offer a lot of different sports for young kids and work with the children instead of brush them off! My 2nd grade son had turned around completely since being enrolled here!
I feel this school is a very low grade school with good academics. The students learn what they need to but not the way they should. The students do not really get involved with the work, although they would learn more from that. Another problem with the school is the diversity. It is basically an all white school with no knowledge of the outside world. The kids here are generally very biased. This is not a good school for students that are democratic or have different religions other that are Christian and/or Catholic. The staff is a good staff with very few imperfections, although there are some. I feel almost all of the teachers really care for each and individual student.
I feel that our school is on the rise we have elem. daram club, a new way to track behavior. Ithink the principal is very involved he knows most children by name and not just the ones who are sent to have a talk. The teachers are looking for ways to help the ones who are behined like my son and advance others so they are not review what they know.
The Principal and K teachers were great, after that the quality seemed to go downhill. The teachers are focused on test scores and not on the individual children and their needs. Very limited activities for kids and the ones that are offered are expensive.
There aren't many academic programs at the elementary level. It would be great if some were offered. Also, the cost of most extracurricular activities is so much just for a camp, that most kids can only participate in maybe one activity, some none at all. I wish there were a way to reduce the cost of these athletic programs.
