I feel that ANY school is what you make of it! If you have ever worked in a school system you would understand that you cannot teach to make every parent happy. There will always be parents that are not happy. If you have problems with your child's teacher and think that students are not on the level that they need to be on then maybe you should be the one volunteering your time at the school. You could volunteer to be a reading tutor, a classroom monitor while the teacher reads with the various reading group. I think that we can always sit back and complain about things that we don't like, but wouldn't it be better if we were proactive and tried to make it better instead of trashing the things that we have. If it's really that bad you always have the choice of moving your child, private schools and home schooling your child.

We moved to east bend from a northern state and the school he former attended is the best school in the county my son has always been very good in school and is advanced in some areas since we have relocated to EB my son is in kindergarten he is miserable he apparently is getting in trouble for things kindergarteners do at his age. He is behind a lot this year compared to his friend back in our homestate even though his teacher is excellent and tired her hardest to give him harder work so he doesn't get bored its hard to do when you have other students who are working at different levels and it seems the school isn't equipped to handled students who need to have customized learning plan weather the child is behind or advanced. not to mention the principal never returns my phone calls and its quite annoying especially when I want my son to get the best education he can especially since the former school he attended is the same school I attended and I must say EBES is no where even close. I am relocating in the next month and I am making sure the next school is good and doesn't hold there students back.education is very important because it opens so many doors to advance in life.

My daughter is in the pre k program at East Bend Elementary and I have nothing but good things to say about it. Her teachers are wonderful and she is thriving. She really enjoys going to school each day and is learning new things all the time.

I hate this school. Everyday I ask my daughter what she has learned and she can't tell me but she can tell me what movie they watched. She's in the first grade reading kindergarten books for reading homework and thats if they remember to give it to her. She should have more challenging and more homework and less movies.

My child went to school here last year and we were not happy with the administation or teacher. Communication was awful. Paperwork, lunch accounts, etc very unorganized!

I went to this school and it was already going down hill then. I now have a son that attends this school and I regret my decision on sending him there. I was truly hoping that over all these years, things had changed and had gotten better but I was wrong. Just don't expect or intend on anyone caring about or for your child.

For those of you who think East Bend Elementary is the worst in the county really need to think hard about this. If you want to look at test scores and growth from last year, you'll find East Bend Elementary at the top in front of the other schools in the county. The teachers and administration at East Bend are always willing to lend a helping hand to parents and students and work their harderst to make sure students are learning as much as they can. Before you criticize, make sure you're getting your facts from somewhere credible.

My daughter is in the 2nd grade and we have had seen nothing but the best. In K, 1st, and 2nd she has had the best teachers, principle and staff to work with her. She is reading and writing well above the 2nd grade level and much of this is because of the loving caring teachers she has had. The school does need more parent involvement. I am very proud of the growth that the school has made over the last couple of years. East Bend Elementary fosters a loving caring environment, which I feel is very important to the children. They know they are cared about and someone is always there to listen, which makes learning much easier.

I am a parent of a sixth grader at East Bend. This is a very welcoming school with caring, innovative teachers who put children first. Many days I pass by and see teachers work well past the end of their workday, and many come in early. I feel that East Bend has very dedicated teachers who want only the best for their students. I am also proud that EB is one of the top two schools in the county achieving high growth on EOG's last year.

We have won the countywide spelling bee,1st place in the soil and water essay, all the 8th & 7th grade passed with 3 and/or 4's. The teachers are great. I'm a 8th grade student here and I think it's the best school Ive ever been to. (a students point of view.)

This school is the worst in the county, other schools are so much ahead of us. What really upsets me is the fact that kids on reduced lunch get free tutoring after school from Sylvan. My kid needs help, and I have asked for it, the only thing he gets is learning lab. There should not be a price on education. Just because we pay for my sons lunch does not mean he doesn't need help. It is so sad when your kids come home with homework, and you can't help because you don't understand how to do it. The kids are having to learn to fast, they are doing work that I didn't do until I was in high school. East Bend was great once, I don't if it can be again. There is also a lot of good athletes there, but they need the proper equipment. Thank You

I am not very happy with East Bend Elem. this year. I feel very disappointed because I loved all the other teachers in the past. I may switch schools at the end of this month.

East Bend Elementary is a wonderful school. I moved my child to East Bend from the Forsyth School System, and I believe this was the best descision I have ever made. The teachers are real enthusiastic about teaching, and seem to really care about their students. My son started hating school in the 2nd grade, and I decided to change schools, and I am glad I did. Now he is excited about learning and going to school.
