Two kids and five cumulative years at Ike and we loved it. Third grade was advanced by the end (basic statistics, economics and Greek mythology), but these challenges are good as long as the core curriculum is thoroughly taught (which it was). The teachers really care about the kids and the school is beautiful. We were spoiled at this school and will miss it tremendously!

WOW. For reference, we are from Pennsylvania and New Jersey- home of what are considered "great" education states. I have also done professional research in the quality of education in relation to budgets, etc. I have a son in Kindergarten, and I also volunteer many times a week in the classroom. My son is receiving special services within his mainstream classroom, and I could not be happier in which the way that this has been integrated by his team of teachers and specialists. This school does flex learning, and every teacher has a vested interest in every single child. They are also very open to parental suggestions and modifications. Parents are really part of the learning team here. The principal is very approachable and friendly, as is the rest of the staff here. There are many half Fridays where the teachers meet and tailor the flex groups and lessons to make sure every child is learning and mastering the material in a fun and innovative way. The school is BEAUTIFUL and a rich learning environment. There are Smart Boards, PA systems, iPads, computer stations, and imaginative play areas (kitchen, blocks, art areas in the classroom.) We really don't want to leave!

We've loved this school. Our kids have gone through grades 2-6 here. We've been especially happy with the "flexing" program that they use. Basically, students are tested prior to a new unit in both reading and math. Students are then assigned to different groups based on their knowledge. They stay in these groups for a few weeks until a new unit is taught, at which time they'll be retested and reassigned. I wish all schools would use a similar model-the students who already have a good knowledge of a topic get challenging curriculum while those that need a more basic curriculum get that. We've had both good and great teachers here-never any weak ones. Our kids have really enjoyed this school, we'll be sad to leave it.

The facility has an atmosphere that is relaxing and comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The curriculum has been enriching and challenging in a good way, no timed tests are a great plus. As a parent I definitely feel like I am being listened to. I have three children attending this school with varying needs, ranging from gifted to ADHD and they all have been addressed well over the course of the year. We will be sad to leave.

This school is awesome. It is the nicest elem. school I have ever seen. The prinicpal is great and easy to talk to. Patsy at the front desk is wonderful. The teachers are amazing. The school has a pond, miscroscopes and a planetarium is nearby. If you are coming from a CA school, you will be impressed. I would stay here just for the school. Gifted students are challenged. If you have a student with an IEP, the school is fantastic in that regard too, doesn't mean you have to stop being yoru child's advocate though. The lunch is healthy and a step up from MO and CA. Children do have art, musci and PE.

Attention: If you are moving into this school and have a gifted student. You will have to appeal through the local county Special Education cooperative and state education department in order to get attention for your child. There are 2 long standing practices the school administration uses to discourage consideration for the gifted program: 1) using test scores as the sole criteria contrary to state and county guidelines and 2) an informal policy not allowing administrators to inform parents of their rights according to Kansas law that parents can request an evaluation. Administrators are opposed to complying with the standards and are frightened of reprisal if they were to violate the local policy regarding rights notification. Its an unfortunate mark on an otherwise good school.

I had home schooled my children and made the trasition of placing them back in public education when we lived in Kansas. It was an incredibly smooth transition due to the professionals at Eisenhower. It was so obvious that they cared about children over all else. They began working with me in the summer to make sure the transition would be seamless. I was able to request my teachers based on what I felt would be the best fit for each of my children and the school honored that request. This school rates as a ten in my book! We've since moved away and continued to keep our children in public education. I wish I could say we still remain at a '10' school but unfortunely that isn't the case. Parents are part of the team at Eisenhower and the children are the number one priority.

This is a wonderful scchool. My daughter is doing more in Forst Grade than I ever imagined. The curriculum, the teachers, the atmosphere - they all combine to make a warm and inviting school. I am thrilled to be here another year so my son can start Kindergarten at Eisenhower.

My daughter is still attending Eisenhower. This is by far the best school she has attended. Caring teachers and a challenging curriculum are just some of the great attributes of this school. The lunch room offers a wide variety of foods for the students without all the fried and processed foods often offered in other schools. I would recommend this school to anyone!

Eisenhower by far is the best school on post. It is the best school our children have attended in our military career. Professional and organized. You will love everything about it.

We have moved a lot in our military career and our 10 year old son has attended 3 schools. By far Eisenhower has been the best learning experience for him. The teachers are experienced and the curriculum is tough. All grades recieved homework. Everything was state of the art there. They even had smart boards, a tremendous computer lab, and individual computers in each class all connected to the internet. It is a beautiful school with lots of windows, brick, and real wood everywhere. There's even an indoor pond. Lastly, the administrative staff is very proffessional and kind. The principal is young, energetic, learns all the kids' names, and yet provides firm discipline. They are great at providing multi cultural experiences too since the post hosts many international students! They had a great music program, an art room and roving art teacher, and lots of parent involvement opportunities available.

This a great, beautiful school! It has a science lab, Star program, where you can get help on homework, and band. It has a wonderful counselor, a great principal and kind but firm teachers. We have classes for the disabled and special days like field day, international day, and kansas day. This is a wonder ful school! I give it two thumbs up and a A+!

We've been to many schools due to moving with the military. I am also a teacher, so I've seen a lot of schools from the inside out. This school is outstanding. The principal is unquestionably the best I've ever seen. My son has been at this school for 3 years, and I've found every teacher to be firm, yet caring. There is funding for afterschool activities and trips. They serve nothing fried in the cafeteria! They also have a terrific science program, IDEA program, and a tireless counselor. I just can't say enough good things about this school. If you care about your child's education, and are willing to do your part and get involved, this school is the best.
