Unfortunately, aside from the wonderful curriculum, Eisenhower has a bullying problem that they consistently fail to address. Bullies are allowed to continue to harass other students without consequence. We are disappointed in this. Also, the parents are very involved, but possibly too involved. The children are denied an authentic educational experience when their parents "helicopter parent" their kids.

Eisenhower is academically an incredible school. The gift of foreign language to Eisenhower students is one to last a lifetime. The gift of global exposure at a young age opens minds for a lifetime, as well. EIS has an amazing parent body who help to make this school an enormous success. Tulsa Public Schools, as a district, would benefit from stepping up to the plate to provide the support that their top elementary school deserves.

I have three children at EIS and couldn't be happier! Aside from the obvious benefit of learning a second language in an immersion environment, Eisenhower has the added benefit of being a small, very close-knit community with a culture all its own. From Hispanic Festival for the Spanish students and Mardi Gras for the French students to on-site extracurricular activities like ever-popular chess club, Orf ensemble, Geography Club, Run Club, Typing Club, Art classes, Acting classes, etc - there's something for every interest at EIS. Kids are encouraged to explore global cultures and learn tolerance, acceptance and social responsibility through the diverse student body, opportunities to participate in international exchange programs and canned food/clothing/coin drives for charity. EIS supports provides a fantastic environment with caring, creative and skilled teachers, a principal who takes the time to know every student, parent and sibling and outstanding academics. There couldn't be a better environment for a kid to grow up and build his/her confidence.

The language immersion program is excellent; scholastically, EIS literally can't be beat! The teachers and staff are truly committed and love the children, the parents are actively involved. The school has not just local but global awareness and involvement. Encouragement and active involvement in running and athletics for health and for fun! Amazing art and drama and music for all children. 100% well-rounded education, excellent in every catagory, Truly wonderful school!!

EIS is awesome. The kids are consistently challenged by being immersed in a foreign language. Parent participation is great.

They are teaching my grandchildren to speak French as well as enhancing their English skills. As a retired teacher, when I enter this building I see immediately, happy children, smiling teachers, a clean building, and lovely things displayed for all to see.

Eisenhower has been ranked the top school in the state, based on a variety of criteria. The needs of the children come first and everyone strives for excellence. No school is perfect, but EIS comes pretty darn close.

I love the teachers, the immersion program is excelent, the parents are involved on all the activities. The diversity the children are exposed to is wonderful. The opportunities the students have are unlimited when they grow up.

The public Spanish/French emersion program is better than any program being offered in the Private Sector. Most teachers are mult-lingual and are passionate about culture. The PTA participation is 100%, and because the children go from Kindergarten to 5th grade with the same 29 other children. It harbors a great tight-nit community.

EIS, a language immersion school, offers both Spanish and French immersion cirriculum for the K through 5th graders - all three of our kids are excelling because of the dedication of the teachers as well as the diversity of the educational program. Wish I'd had half the opportunities growing up that my kids have had so far at EIS!
