This is a great school with wonderful teachers. I have had nothing but a great experience with EJE. The teachers just love their students and it shows! It is a beautiful school inside and out.

My daughter is in the third grade this year. Every year at EJE has been very enjoyable. Each teacher has been enthusiastic in her approach to teaching. The principals encourage and appreciate parents willing to sacrifice their time and talent to help the teachers and children at EJE. I am thankful for that. This year a new music teacher was hired. She has already had the third graders sing at a PTO meeting. My daughter is truly excited about learning music in class. I look forward to the next three years at EJE.

I have two children at EJE.I have a child in Sped, his teacher is Mrs.Bonner. She is a great teacher,it is the rest of his teachers that act very unconcerned. My other son is in 3rd grade,he has a wonderful teacher , luckily.I think that most of the problem in this school is with Dr. Terri White. She is very unconcerned about anything other than herself. I also think that the parents should be aware of the privacy being taken away from there children.The custodains keep all bathroom doors open so everyone walking by can see the children both boys and girls.The custodians, which are all women, clean the bathrooms while the children are in there. Even the boys.My child has had to use the bathroom while women were in there. He is 11. I think that is wrong. That should not be in there.

I' am very displeased with EJE all four of my children have gone to this school and out of four they put three in sped I asked to have my son tested in 1 grade they said he must fail first to get tested well he's now in fifth grade with his little sister and I just got a call from the teacher who I sent a letter to asking why his grades are N/A she said he just wont do the work (back in my day we couldn't just sit there and not do work ) After 9 weeks of not doing work she calls me only when asked to There has to be some kind of Accountability for these teachers.

i have nothing but good things to say about the faculty at EJE I have a daughter and son that attends school here and I can honestly say that these teachers care about the children in this school. These teachers are commited to excellence in education and that is what our children need. My son is in kindergarten and has some learning problems and I could not ask for a better teacher than who he has. My doughter is in the 3rd gradeand she has an awesome teacher. The principals and teachers of this school treat each child as if they are their own. D.Adams

My son has just started 3rd grade at EJE. He has excelled wonderfully! His teachers have been nothing but helpful in his progress. They push him to do his best at all times and I could not ask for a better support system for my son. Would recommend EJE to any mother or father who is looking for a wonderful team to teach and support thier child.

My family and I have had a horrible experience with the teachers at this school. My 10 year old child has ADHD and requires some extra help to accomplish her goals. The teachers were very unconcerned with her needs and it was a constant fight to get them to do anything to help her. They were better at destroying her self esteem than teaching her. We have sold our home and are planning to move out of state simply to get our children out of this school. Hopefully we can get our children in another school with a better staff that can help undo the damage this school has done. Other parents that I have spoken with feel the same way. I would definately not recommend this school to any parent. There are others in the district that have much more qualified teachers.

Our family has had an excellent experience with EJE. Our 12 year old daughter is a sped student. She has adjusted very well and we couldn't have hand picked such wonderful teachers. They have been genuinely kind and patient! Our 2nd grader has experienced the best in the accelerated programs. She hasn't missed a day and looks forward to seeing her teachers. They (teachers) are cheery and enthusiastic. They obviously love their jobs as well as the students!
