I have sent 4 children to this school. My sons are now 24, 22 and 20. They all did great at East! Now my daughter is in first grade and doing great! She is 6. My eldest son finished college, middle son is going to finish this year, and youngest son will finish next year. They got their start at East Gresham Grade School. I will remain an involved parent just as I did with my sons and continue to help the school continue to be great!

Our children were enrolled at East Gresham for one very long year. We moved to Gresham from Arizona. Our children were in a Charter School in Arizona. Smaller class sizes better teacher to student ratio's. Our children were left to there own because the teachers were too busy with english as a second language students to interact with our children. We were told by the teachers during a conference that they just don't have enough time to deal with the brighter kids as they have their hands full with the non english speaking children. This is not a good school. We now home school our children.

They can not even keep track of registration records so how can I expect them to educate my child? Not at all organized!

My daughter has been here for 1st and 2nd grade. She has done very well here and has been given every opportunity achieve her potential. The one problem with some bullying that we did have was addressed and has not happened since.

My daughter has gone to East Gresham for her first 2 years of school. She is a very happy child, gets along very well with other children, and loves learning new things. In the last half of the school year she she was being picked on, called horrible names, and even punched. This is not ok, and I do not feel it was taken very seriously by the school. I hope that the parents there will get more involved with the school, I think that would help change things around. My daughter will not be attending this school next year, I am transferring her to a new school and am hopeful things will improve.

Two years ago our family left East Gresham to attend a private school. Sadly, East Gresham has been allowed to significantly decline after hiring a new principal in 2004. Teachers are presented with the difficult challenge of teaching a very diverse community of low income and ELL students. Children such as mine were left to never fully meet their potential because the other children demanded so much attention. Bullying, bad language and disrespect were a common daily factor. I felt that the moral character traits important to my family were contradicted on a daily basis.

My children have attended this school for the past three years. I feel that they are not being taught to the level that they should be. The principal is passive and never follows through. I am transfering my children to a new school this next year! I have really liked the teachers here but know that they are unhappy. Teachers are leaving this year and I know many more who would like to but love there students and are tring to work with the new principal.

My daughter has been at east for 4yrs and she has excelled very well. The teachers have been great over the years to work with, always kept me informed of any changes in her performance, overall very comfortable enviroment for both she and I.
