How quick people are to judge Eisenhower. The staff at this school work hard and care a great deal about every student in this school. I love the diversity and real world qualities of this school. I am an involved parent and embrace the opportunity I am given to volunteer in the school and get to know not only the staff and most of the children in my children's grade, but others as well. There is more to a school community than test scores. We are Eisenhower! It's unfortunate that others are quick to pull kids out and away, and not stay and build the community together.

I am very disappointed in this school. In out two years here we have found the school to be ripe with: complacent teachers who allow bullying to thrive, poor performance, emphasis on sports when the school is a Title 1 school and should focus on academics, a small cadre of very involved parents but the others not-so-much and the list goes. We will be open-enrolling in another district. The school leadership and teachers really need to reorganize before the state does it for them.

Poor leadership. Principal Terri Sig enza just hand her job to the assistant principal Paul Domer. She is so uninvolved to the school activities, rarely shows up and never gets involve to important fund raise events, spring fling, fall festival, imagination fare... She is just like a card puncher and just works minimal. She just cares about the hardware but omit the quality of the teachers and improvement of the students.

This school is a bully haven and the principal and administrative staff tolerate it. All curriculum is based on the MCAs so that they can get more funding for their pet projects leaving the average student behind. Disgusting school and district.

This is really a disappointing school. Ever since the previous principal left and was replaced with the current principal, the school has quickly gone down hill. If you live in hopkins MN, look for an alternative to Eisenhower.

Eisenhower Elementary (or Ike, as it's affectionately known), is really an excellent school. The facilities are much larger than the normal elementary school, due to the Hopkins District Center sharing the building. With the district center on site, there is an incredible focus on the cirriculum and performance of the faculty and staff. The facilities are excellent, pool, great lunchroom, many district programs and activities, ... there's even an actual observatory!

Eisenhower Elementary and XinXing Academy have been a great place for our child's education and a great community for our family. Our child is enjoying her Chinese Immersion school at Eisenhower immensely. She is able to read almost 200 Chinese characters and began reading in English over Christmas break last year while in Kindergarten. We love that the diversity of her school reflects the diversity of our community. We are glad we made the choice to enroll her in XinXing Academy at Eisenhower elementary.

Eisenhower Elementary School has a diverse population of students - allowing for a greater understanding of how it will be in life. The teachers are attentive and willing to answer questions by myself (parent) in a timely manner. The focus on education is felt throughout the school from faculty, instructors and educational opportunities.

Eisenhower Elementary School in Hopkins, Minnesota, is a terrific school. It brings the American culture to a significant group of newly arrived families, and brings Chinese language and culture to all families through its XinXing Chinese immersion program. That is no small feat! It takes parents and teachers working together every day to make it happen.

The best elementary school in the world, in my opinion in so many important ways. Even if I moved 100 miles away, I would keep my child here and drive her!!

My son had a challenging year in Kindergarten. The school was unwilling to initiate an IEP, saying it would take three months to get it in place. When we finally got a 504 in place for his sensory integration problems, his behavior improved. The teacher was wonderful, as was the counselor. However, we are leaving this school district because of district budget cuts that increased class size and strained already thin resources. The closing of another school also forced some great teachers out of their jobs. I hope Ike can turn it around so we can consider returning.
