Eastwood Middle School has been a wonderful surprise for this mom. With one child who is now a 7th grader & another who'll be entering next year, I can compare & contrast my apprehensions about my oldest child's first days at Eastwood with the excitement I feel now for my younger daughter next year. The school is rather small; very simply laid out.We felt a warmth & sense of welcoming I just never had associated with the idea of "middle school." But that's Eastwood. Not that the curriculum isn't rigorous. Eastwood is an IB school & Principal Matt Kaiser & his staff ask no more of the students than they ask of themselves. & they ask A LOT of themselves.I volunteer a few hours, weekly & I see only part of what these men & women put into their days, nights & wknds on the students' behalf. It may take a village to raise a child, but it takes a group of people who give above & beyond to make a public school this good.In my 2 years of being an Eastwood parent, I've met many such teachers & staff. We're a family of Chinese Americans.My daughter had to deal with racial taunting in another school.There have been NO such incidents at Eastwood where my daughter feels, in her words,"at home."

Great opportunities, great faculty, great kids. We have two very advanced children, and the school has done anything we have asked to challenge them and provide them with the resources they need. They faculty is good at differentiation of instruction

The teachers are dedicated, caring, and knowledgable. The administration seems Intelligent, committed, and keenly interested in making the school better. A public school in a township whose demographics have become quite mixed socioeconomically, Eastwood, like the Washington Township school district in general, has worked hard to change with its shifting student population, and to keep up with the latest in pedagogical methods. The faculty does a good job with discipline, which, as we all know, is never easy. The school, incidentally, is underrated--a lot better than its GreatSchools ranking of 6 out of 10.

I have only been attenting Eastwood Middle School for nine weeks, but already, I feel like it's been all three years. Even though I'm only a sixth grader, I still have almost as many opportunities as even eighth graders! I love all of my teachers, and our assistant principals. I have made lots of new friends, and had a great time. The building even sets a good vibe because of how clean and beautiful it is!

I think they need more resoures for child with disabilites. And better programs for them. Teachers need to learn about didabilites so they can better help children.

I Diddio the previous comments/reviews made. Eastwood staff seem to really care about the students and their future. I feel the curriculum maybe tough, but if students are to be college bound, this is a good start for college. Overall, I think WTS is the best.

Our child is an 8th grade student on the Gold Star team. We couldn't ask for a better group of professionals to teach our child. The curriculum is challenging and is definitely preparing our child for high school next year. This is our second child at Eastwood and we have been very pleased with the most of the teachers we have encountered. Plenty of chances for parent involvement as well. Our 8th grader often makes positive comments about how much she appreciates her teachers. Of course, she has her favorites. But all in all, she is enthusiastic about her school and has obtained a great level of confidence there. The performing arts program is particularly well-run. Both of our kids participated in the music program, both band, orchestra and choir. The teachers there care and it is very much appreciated. Thank you, Eastwood!

Four Star School again! Eastwood exceeds in meeting all expectations for our family and many others. Quality of academic programs - excellent. Availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities - excellent. Parent-teacher involvement - excellent.

My son just started at this middle school. He enjoys it so much! The teachers are wonderful! I was nervous about the transfer to middle school but this school has a great system in place for the kids. I will never take my children out of Washington Township!
