Our son has attended this school for 2nd & 3rd grade. We are thrilled with the school. We chose this school because of the uniforms and chess cirriculum, but we love the teachers and parent involvement as well. It is really a sense of community which allows these kids to thrive academically.

Better than other schools in CMS, but that isn't saying much. This school is hampered by the ridiculous CMS curriculum. They don't seem to teach reading in class, and instead expect parents to teach the kids after school (in addition to the assigned homework), then the kids come in and take computerized tests on the books they've read. This sounds like a fun 'extra', but is a disaster as the primary means for teaching kids to read in the first place. My daughter was reading well in her private kindergarten, and is backsliding because of lack of instruction.

Eastover is an excellent school! I am so impressed by the faculty, the administration and the entire student body as a whole. Ms. Ashford focuses on growing a whole child and you can definately tell when you walk throught the halls. A total sense of pride!

Despite its early start, Eastover is an ideal elementary school and setting. The building itself is among the best located and finest equipped in the city. We looked at several private schools and settled on Eastover as an equal - and in many ways superior - choice for our children.

Our son just completed fifth grade at Eastover and we were definitely pleased with the staff, teachers and administration during our six years at the school. A very active PTA also offers lots of support, both financial and through volunteer hours, to the school. We found the teachers to be caring and very interested in the success of each child. Our son was always challenged in his classes; language arts and math students are grouped based on ability, permitting each child to work confidently at his or her level. The small size of the school is a positive- admnistrators and support staff know almost all the children by name within the first few months of school. A variety of after school (fee-based) clubs are available. We feel that Eastover offers parents one of the best elementary school options of all area schools, whether public and private.

Eastover is a gem in the CMS system. It's small size (3-4 classrooms per grade), successful uniform program and extremely active parents make this school a standout. My kids truly love going to school and my mother (a 30+ year elementary school teacher) is amazed at the work they are doing. We couldn't be happier. School does have a new principal who hopefully will continue the successful path established at Eastover.

Eastover is a wonderful school which is small enough to challenge every child to his/her potential. It has a diverse student body, great parent support, high staff & teacher morale, and creative leadership. We chose Eastover over private education for our children.
