This school has a very dedicated staff and very involved PTA. The kindergarten and first grade teachers are the best. My kids are in grade have had very good experiences with this school. I have volunteered in the school and each classroom is divided out so it does not appear open concept from within a classroom. The guidance counselor and principal and school administration staff are all very nice. Parental involvement is key.
I just transfered my son to this school after issues with the Chamberlain street school. Where he could not read a word (he is in Kindergarten) two days at east rochester he is reading the small booklets to me, and he is actually happy to go to school. The staff are absolutley amazing. The teachers here have a very effective system and the principal is welcoming to all and neither the teacher of principal are ever too busy to see a parent. I am super impressed with this school and think it should rank tops in the district with elementary schools. Myh son who also hated gointg to school before now tells me he is happy to go to scholl.
I think the teachers at the East Rochester School are great, They seem to be very invovled with their students. The principal knows all my children by their first name. The open concept classrooms though, I think they need to work on. If you have a child with a short attention span, this will not work for them!!! Special ed, goes above and beyond!
