As a parent of a child with special needs this school lacks in the communication department. When they forget to dismiss a whole class at the end of the day it says something. The teachers are good but the lack of leadership from the the head man speaks volumes.. I am switching my child out of this school ASAP. They also lack in special needs!!!!!

Not a good student body, teachers unhelpful and are not creative or well suited to teach. Do not recommend this school for any growing minds.

As the parent of a third grader at EES, I have been consistently impressed by the quality and dedication of the faculty. My child started there in pre-K, and every teacher so far has both inspired and challenged her. The teachers do an impressive amount of "differentiation" in the classroom, catering to students at different levels. The classrooms are neat, inviting, and well-equipped with technology that the teachers use fruitfully. Don't let the relatively middling scores fool you, as these are a reflection of the many low income and at-risk youth that this school serves. Despite the district's pattern of churning administrators every few years, this remains a quality school, and it seems to be getting only better.

As a substitute teacher I have been in many schools. Easton Elementary is the least impressive when it comes to parent involvement. When parent involvement suffers the culture of the school suffers as well. As a parent I feel I must compete for any opportunity to be involved in my child's school experience. The school fails to offer the many opportunities I see in other schools. What they do offer is many opportunities to be involved in their fund-raisers. The school has new leadership so heres hoping...

We are very happy with EES. The kids are very diverse, but the teachers and staff are able to tailor learning to the slower learners AND the more gifted kids. There are lots of before and after school activities, the art and music programs are great, and the parents are really involved. Don't let the 5 out of 10 rating foul you. That's based on standardized scores and just shows that EES serves a diverse population. If it was rated based on quality, it would be a 10 out of 10! My kids are happy here, feel safe, love the teachers, and know that the teachers and staff care about them.

We love Easton Elementary. Mr. Stofa really has his finger on the pulse of the school. Our experience has been wonderful with the teachers as well.

Easton Elementary is unique in that it has two buildings: pre-K, K and 1st grade (Dobson building) and 2nd-5th grade (Moton building). I have children in both buildings and am very pleased with the teachers. Mr. Redman, principal of Dobson, is wonderful. The Moton building is divided into three smaller communities where kids can develop relationships with kids and teachers in their community of 2nd - 5th graders. Because this is the only public school in Easton, our children benefit from a diverse environment. Teachers take the time to understand each child's learning needs and tailor teaching to support the 'advanced', 'intermediate' and 'beginning' learner. The PTO is very active. We enjoy the music, art, P.E. and after school activities sponsored by the PTO. I wish the physical building/equipment was 'newer' -- but it always looks clean and neat.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
