A lot of the parents are emotinally disconnected from the students and it comes out in school when my daughter is offered drugs or pressured to date or do sexual acts. Some may say this is normal but not in my house is it ever considered normal.
The kids arent taught to care for themselves or each other. My daughter was bullied until i made her understand she had to fend for herself and i had to help the counselor see i wasnt going to tolerate her sitting on her hands whilst this went on.
The eastchester school district is an average school district. Its good as far as providing a good academic learning atmosphere-the teachers can teach and have control over their classes. Alot of the students are a direct reflection of their parents-opinionated and unhappy but Im grateful my kids arent that way. our experience was ok there. I dealt with a couple of difficult teachers but I let them know that how they're treating my kid wasnt good enough and that all stopped, just like any where. Your students will get a good education here. You just have to let the teachers know you wont tolerate any favortism or alienation when it comes to your kid and all will be fine. Its just another average school in new york state. Would i reccommend it? As long as you're no pushover.
My 3 children have had an excellent experience in Eastchester School District. Waverly K-1; Greenvale Elementary 2-5; Eastchester MS 6-8 and now in the high school. Great programs and teachers that are invested in their students. The enrichment programs, music department, athletics & academics - have all been wonderful.
This school is the WORST. I don't know HOW it has 9 stars. Fox Lane has 8 stars, but several people have told me how wonderful Fox Lane High School is. My uncle, who is a teacher, has said that Fox Lane is a greaaaaaattttt school (emphasis on great). Eastchester students are raised to be very snotty, prejudice, and everything is chosen by who knows who. Jazz Co., for example, their afterschool dance club, holds favoritism. Only the people who have family members that know the teachers from when THEY went to school, get placed in the front. Also, the education is mediocre. The teachers don't care about the students, and the students don't care about each other. Whoever wrote these positive reviews must've wrote them 30 years ago, because they are definitely not accurate for the present. If you want a great community to start a family and great schools for your child(ren), send them to the Bedford Central School District. - a FORMER Eastchester Student
Eastchester High is a special place. Almost every teacher is concerned deeply about their students success, and every single one will work to help the student if the student approaches them. The student body is very spirited, and for the most part very studious and easy to fit in with. I've gone to Eastchester schools my whole life, and I wouldnt want it any other way.
