Rating this school with one star because I cannot choose zero stars. This is a perfect school if you want nightmares every day and who takes pride in breaking the law and regulations. Will they teach the kids? Nobody knows. Horrible staff at reception. Horrible teachers who focus all their time on their hair, their makeup and stilettos. Administration who like to blame children for their shortcomings and their incompetence. Run while you can.

East Brook is a wonderful school. My son has been there for two years and we love his teachers. My son has learning disabilities, and the school offers everything he needs. The OT teacher is amazing, and the speech therapist is phenomenal. My son has come a long way in the last two years and I can't thank the teachers enough.

East Brook Elementary is a terrific school with a terrific mix of teachers with varying year of backgrounds and experience. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking to move to the area

My daughter has been in eastbrook for about 4 years now... it is a really great school. They really go above and beyond for students with adhd , speech issues and now they even have a sawtelle program for autistic children. The students are very accepting of children with special needs adn treat them very well... This is my daughters last year in PK rdg becasue the town we reside in now has a LLD program for grades 3 & up... it was modelled after the LLD in park Ridge becasue it is such a succesful program.
