I don't think it even deserves 1-star. There's too much red tape when it comes to getting straight answers about what's going on with your child and when it comes being there in person to observe your child and teacher. The law gives every parent that right. The principal applies his own religious beliefs when it comes to running the school and handling problems. The principal is also biased to certain students and rules. This school's staff is worse than worthless. There have been nothing but problems since our child was forced to enroll in this school. No one wants to help or act on any problem that has arisen. They just point there fingers at the parents and stick their noses up in the air. Everything falls on deaf ears. This school has created a toxic environment for learning and as a result it has created economic strain on our family and behavioral and emotional problems in an otherwise happy, bubbly child. A child should want to go to school and not have to fear ridicule, retaliation, nor be burdened with undo stress. Especially at such a young innocent age. If there's a way to avoid this school my advice is to go ahead and avoid it at all costs.

My daughter use to go to Beaver Run and she was doing amazing there. I heard nothing but good things. But now she goes to East Salisbury and the teachers seem to not care about my daughters education. They complain about my daughter failing instead of trying to help whats the point of my daughter going to school

East Salisbury Elementary: Not the best school it is old and very run down. The teachers are hit and miss, last year my daughter did very well. This year we are having issues with the teacher. No instructions are coming home on how the teacher wants the math to be shown. This is typical of this school, if the child misses something in class they are lost when it comes completing the assignment.

I have heard many 'bad' things about East Salisbury and was very concerned about sending my child there. Once their I found supportive teachers and staff. My child enjoys East and is doing great. I think as long as my child has the support of his parents he can excell any where. I am proud of East and the gains they are making.

I decided to give this school a chance since my tax dollars fund it. I met with the principle, teacher, and very shortly after the school year began, the board of education. Believe me when I say this, do not send your child to this school if you have any fears whatsoever. My daughter went from being a straight A student reading on a 6th grade level, to a D student reading on a 2nd grade level. We struggled all year trying to improve her grades. I repeatedly met with her teacher. The more involved I became, the worse the situation became. There is no air conditioning for third grade. The teachers are severe in punishment. I made a very, very bad choice sending my child here. And by the way, the student to teacher ratio is at least 19. My child will not return to this school.

Ms. Tana Ellis is a great asset to East Salisbury. She makes the school a fun place to learn. This is the first year my child actually likes to go to school. Her grades have also improved due to the inclusive teaching style of Mrs. Ellis.

East Salisbury is the best school for my child. He is in 'Special Ed' and Mrs. Elder & Mrs. Conaway are the best. They have done wonders on my son Eric Baker. Keep up the good work.
