My kids have been at Eisenhower for 3 years. Every year the academics have improved greatly. 2010 the school was rated a 6, 2013 it's an 8. My child's first year I thought the academics were weak & I was looking elsewhere that entire 1st yr but private school is too costly. We tried it again the following year and my other child enrolled and it's been great! I noticed right away that the curriculum was improving from the year before. No school is perfect but I've had good relationships with both my kid's teachers through the years. The teachers care and the principal Mr. M does a great job, they are quick to respond to all student needs. Even the office staff has improved greatly w/the addition of Jen!

The staff at Eisenhower is first rate. The teachers there are very caring and will go out of their way to help the students. The special education program is located there for the district and as a parent of a hearing impaired child I was concerned about the way he would be treated by his classmates. I was amazed to see that the students there are taught to be empathic toward others, and the older children show patience and kindness towards the younger ones. The principal, Mr. Mielenhausen in my opinion is the best principal in the district.

I have a student with very severe mental and physical limitations and the staff at Eisenhower is amazing. The teacher in the classroom is fun and outgoing and always looking to make sure my daughter gets the most out of school day. I looked at several schools prior to deciding to have my daughter attend Eisenhower. Mrs. H is one of the best special needs teachers in Iowa.

Teachers and support staff are wonderful. Every experience I have had at Eisenhower has been a positive one. Mr. Mielenhausen works to involve parents. We transferred from a parochial school and couldn't be happier with the attention and devotion of the entire staff.

Eisenhower is great...I am a teacher for another district but wish I worked at Eisenhower. The staff is great and supportive. The main office personnel are genuinely concerned and caring for all of the Eisenhower community.

Eisenhower has great teachers, staff, and principal. They seem to be trying new methods to teach the kids all they know. They all seem to care and want the kids to be successful.

The School is diverse and filled with energy. The teachers are engaging, caring and well qualified. Our girls love school. Great interaction from the principal with the kids and parents. Eisenhower also has a 'Watchdog Dads' program where dozens and dozens of dads spend a day at the school mentoring, supporting, encouraging and having a presence of great role models for the kids. The teachers all embrace the program and its awesome to see the looks on the faces of the kids when we are around. All of the programs are well done and well attended. Our PTA does a super job with everything. We love Eisenhower!

Teachers and administation is wonderful. My son went to a different school pre - 3rd grade and likes Eisenhower much better than his old school.

My daughter has attended a different school prior to her 3rd grade year at Eisenhower. I can tell the difference, and what a difference! She is on her way to becoming all of her potential!! Seriously a step above the other schools in the area.
