VERY SPECIAL SCHOOL. I've had my children at this school since 1993, now my youngest is there. Mr. Wandell is one of the finest principals and his staff is always so caring and helpful. All the children are treated as their own and are so loved by the teachers. The academics and motivation of the teachers to teach the children make Eastside the wonderful school it is. I live out of zone and will continue to pay tuition to send my child here because I know she is happy,safe and her best interests are being served by this great school. Thanks, Carol Shingleton-Taylor
What can you say about a school that accepts a new child like Eastside did mine? One word, wonderful!!! Her teacher, clasmates, and principal all took her in like she had been there for years. We moved here from VA in July and my daughter knew no one the first day she walked in. Now she is really good friends with all of her classmates, her teacher adores her, and Mr. Wandell treats her like she is his own. My husband and I made the decision not to move into the county until after she is out of high school based on the love we have all recieved from this school. I just hope and pray that T.A. Dugger can match the experience next year. Thanks, Donella Beasley
East Side Elementary is a very special school. There are a wide variety of students and teachers who work together like a family. The teachers work for the best of the students and I have no doubts that my children are receiving the best education possible with the teachers they have had. Parent involvement is VERY high, which shows pride in the school system all together. I am very pleased and proud that my children attend East Side Elementary. Thanks!
This is an astounding school! The teachers do an awesome job motivating the children to learn! My child was new last year and welcomed by everyone. We came from a county school and were quite behind in our academics. The teacher did a remarkable job catching my child up to standards. The teachers show so much love toward the children. They truly care about the well-being of each child. I am so tickled that I transferred my children to this school. This is the best place to learn!
