No, there is too much teacher, staff, student, and administration turnover. The work environment for the school is extremely bad, which is passed on to the students.

East Point is a very competitive place. Results are rampant bullying and people turning their heads.

No- this is not being modeled to them, at all, by adults that work here.

We are SO GLAD to be out of this terrible, unhealthy school. We're not the only ones who left in these four years: principal, vice-principal, three primary campus admins, many teachers and staff, students. Where is the continuity of education?

If the adult staff does not have honesty, integrity, and respect, then why should the kids? Terrible role models. In response to the question if the school promotes honesty, integrity, and respect in the students.

HIgh pressure environment with testing at 5k made my kids feel stressed. Don't think anyone that runs the school on the Board has any experience with early childhood ed.

We have a child in their 4th year at EPA. We love the school and the teachers. They love the students and give a great deal of personalized attention. We have experienced some teacher turnover but after researching other schools in our area we discovered it was actually below normal. The parent community is amazing and the administration and staff are quite accepting of parent leaders in the school as well as parent input. It's still a new school, only 4 years old, but it has maintained a A (excellent) federal rating and I see it in my child's academic abilities. The fact that my child can also speak Mandarin and is getting an understanding of other cultures is just icing on top. It's like a private school education for free. We fully see staying in the school through 8th grade.

So far we love East Point. Our daughter is one her second year, going on her third year, and really loves the school. The Mandarin Immersion is great and her Mandarin teachers are wonderful!
