Earhart Environ Magnet Elementary School 5

I would like to comment on the last opinion about Earhart because I do not want you to be misinformed. The area around Earhart is far from bad. I have lived in the surrounding neighborhood for 16 years and never once had a problem. It is an older, quiet neighborhood and like most old neighborhoods in Wichita there are no sidewalks. Up until the late 90's I believe it was considered Park City, KS. That being said, there is still plenty of room to walk on the lawns in front of the roads. Due to there being no sidewalks, the buses pick our children up. No need to walk to school if you feel it is unsafe. They put in a cross walk so you are able to safely walk across Arkansas. The cross walk will trigger not only the stop lights, but the signs on the side of the road to flash. I agree the lower speed limit signs should be flashing during school drop off and pickup times, but that is something that should be taken up with the City. My experience with Earhart has been nothing but great. All three of my daughters have/still are attending. Teachers are caring, and the office staff does a great job. They have recently hired a new lady, so there is going to be a learning curve...and patience is what she needs, not a harsh review on a website. Not every school location is going to be perfect...every school has certain things in its general vacinity are not favorable. For us it is the strip club four blks to the north. Wichita does not allow these clubs in a residential neighborhood, but since it was there when the area was Park City...its been grandfathered in. It is not something I care to have in my neighborhood, but in no way has the club effected my childs learning....or made Earhart or my neighborhood "bad". Its what you make out of your situation that makes you a better person...and a strip club, no sidewalks, or a office worker that needs sometime to learn the ropes does NOT make for a bad school in my opinion. Just take a look at the other reviews. Earhart is a great school. Thank you.

The office is very unorganized, and the receptionists and some teachers appearances are very unprofessional, which sets a bad example for the children. The school is also located in a unsafe part of town, with a strip club a few blocks down the road. There are no sidewalks leading to the schools for those who want to walk or ride their bikes to school, and I almost never see the school zone street lights being used or lower speed limits being enforced.

Absolutely the best elementary school in Wichita. Wonderful teachers, great atmosphere, and an excellent environmental program. My daughters have excelled not only in their school work, but in life. Their teachers have opened their eyes and opened their minds, not only see the beauty of mother earth but also to the problems we are currently facing with global warming, deforestation of the rain forest, etc., and the need to be proactive. To respect every living thing. I'm so very glad I choose Earhart. It isn't just another elementary school, it's something much greater.

I have three children that attend Earhart, and I am in complete awe of the school and their faculty. The teachers go above and beyond for their students. I can't begin to say enough about the amount of time and support they have provide to their students. Their magnet program is centered around environment which include school campouts that is not only fun but educational as well.

I have one daughter in 3rd grade and one attending Pre-K. Earhart is a great school, the teachers are fantastic, and I am very proud that my daughters are not only learning the normal subjects, but also learning how to treat/save the environment.

When we did research for an elementary school in Wichita, we checked AYP scores, asked around about teachers and parent groups. Literally every person we talked to about Earhart raved about it. This is not an exaggeration, every-single-person! Our son is in his third year at Earhart and I couldn't agree more with every thing we were told. We do not live in the Earhart school district, thankfully we were able to get in through the magnet process. Our son is in 4th grade now, and I am already sad about having to leave Earhart in two years. We love this school!!!

This school has it all. The test scores are really good for a public school. The teachers are excited about teaching and the students love learning. The environmental program is great. The students are actively engaged in learning and get to spend time outdoors. The camping program is a plus. It is lots of work, but worth every minute. It is amazing to watch the kids work together to set up camp and be part of a family group. We are extremely happy with Earhart. The only negative thing I can even think of is that the parent group, Coop, is not very welcoming of new parents who haven't been part of the Earhart family in the past.

Great school and great teacher and support staff. My child loves to go to school there. Most days she is even happy to go. It's hard these day to get kids to want to go to school. And even harder to get them off the computer or gaming systems and get outside. This school does both.

My daughter has done very well at Earhart. I've been happy with the way the school seems genuinely interested in the welfare of each child. If there is an issue that needs to be addressed, I feel it is handled in an appropriate way
