I volunteer at East Side and have fallen in love with the teachers and students! Everything is done orderly and relationally and I'm sad to leave at the end of the day! East Side Elementary is a truly amazing school in every way!


Posted December 16, 2008

My son has now been in East Side for 4 years. I have loved all of his teachers, they are very our going and always keep the parents involved. Me have has a few problems with the rest of the staff; but the teachers make up for the short comings of the rest. Thank you so much East Side teachers!
