East Cheatham Elementary School 3

My son went to East Cheatham last year for kindergarten. He had a wonderful teacher and he did very, very well. However, my problem is with the new principal and the aftercare staff. I went to her for help concerning their aftercare program, because we had been on a waiting list for a long time, and could never get any help or an answer from the staff as to when our son could get in. The principal was absolutely no help at all. Wouldn't even return a phone call or email. All she did was just forward our messages on down the line. The two ladies that run the aftercare have absolutely no communication skills. We were on a waiting list for eight months and the best they could tell us is "We will have to call you." Well, that's a terrible strategy for parents who have to work for a living. Last year I lost significant income due to the fact that I had to quit work every day at 2 p.m. to be there to pick my son up from school. Bottom line - I put our son in private school for first grade because of this. You truly get what you pay for. The only reason I give this school three stars is because my son's teacher was amazing.

Kindergarten required a lot of homework. Most of the time, my son could do all the weekly requirements in an hour.

Most of the children at this school are from very poor, broken homes. Most of what I noticed is there are a lot of grandparents raising children here because of parental dysfunction.

I currently have 3 children attending ECES and I absolutely love all their teachers and the staff! One of my children is autistic and is in special needs as well as speech there and within the last two years has tripled his vocabulary!! He now says sentences and words that even I have trouble pronouncing. They love the competitive academics and having the same class for multiple years, they were able to start learning immediately this year instead of having that a weirdness every kid gets at the beginning of the school year

At first I did not want my son to go to school there. I wanted to him to go to the school that I went to and I was also worried about the scores the school received. Now I am so happy and proud to say my son goes to East Cheatham. I did not attend that school and I do not know any of the faculty but when I am there they treat me like I have been going there for years. All of the faculty members are wonderful and dedicated to our children. I have yet to have a bad experience there. I could not imagine a better school than East Cheatham!!!!
