Posted July 16, 2012

My three children all attended EES and had a wonderful educational experience. Between the 3 of them, we have had almost all of the teachers at one time or another and I don't have anything but good things to say about each and every one of them. I'm not sure what the last reviewer was talking about, but my kids learned much more than how to take tests. The teachers are very encouraging and positive. Also, within the last 2 years the school has installed a new heating and central AC system, so there are no more climate control problems. My kids received a great education at EES and I think very highly of this school, its staff and its administration.

We have a select few great teachers. My daughter has been lucky to get 2, my son not so lucky. I don't believe schools should be evaluated on how well you can teach a child to take a test. We have above average community support from our public library which help contribute to the love of reading, which in turn contributes to knowlegde. I am not too impressed with the fact that for most of the past winter out children didn't even have a fully functioning heater. Going to school and sitting in a classroom that is on average 60* is not acceptable. Our principal is great. Our super - not so much.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Kansas used the Kansas State Assessments (KSA) to test students in grades 3 though 8, 11 and 12 in reading and math; in grades 4, 7, 11 and 12 in science; and in grades 6, 8 and 12 in history-government. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
