As a parent of an EWES student I have been very pleased. The teachers are great and easily contacted. I have been called at home to check on my child when she was out sick. My child is ahead of many of her peers from other schools in terms of reading and reasoning. I have an oder child that also attended EWES. He had the same experience. Both of them love school and any problems we had were easilty resolved. It is a great, well disciplined learning enviornment for children. I've seen many former classmates move back home in order to send their children to East Webster. There is a lot of parent involvement and, I believe, the children know that they are cared for.

I am very pleased with the whole staff at my boys elementary school. The teachers do not mind you calling or just stopping for a visit. Above all every staff at my boys school even the subs are great, and they put the children first. They are also consern about the children well being when they are not at school (@ home). I think that is just awesome.

East Webster Elementary has the best sixth grade teachers. The teachers work extremely hard to teach self-discipline, independence as well as the basics of education. These ladies know how to smile, laugh, love and have fun. Thank you EWES.
