My son has enjoyed and become a very respectable person all because of East.
Our new principal has increased parent communication and student pride. Love it!!!
Teachers, students & parents have created a great community centered around learning.
I love the fact that East is a magnet school and I know my kids are getting a great education. And, I especially love that they can attend one school from grade 5-12! Wonderful teachers and a great new principal Mr. Ball!!!!!
The teachers and staff are great. Wonderful place. Can't say enough good things about this school.
East Literature is an awesome school. The teachers genuinely care about their students and that makes all the difference. The students are well diversed but come together as one!
The teachers at East Literature really want to see the students succeed.
East has incredibly dedicated administration and faculty. My son is enjoying the school immensely. None of the typical 'middle school transition' issues.
They have a open door policy and parents are welcomed and listened to. It's a team effort to educate my child.
i am a student @ east and i love it!!!!!!!! Mrs.King is the best!!!!!!
I am senior at East Literature Magnet. I have been here since my freshman year of high school. I am glad that I made the chocie to attend this school. I came is short with an attitude problem, but ready to learn. I was ready to learn and the teachers where eager to teach me and that is why ELMS is a great school. I never had a teacher that I couldn't stand because if they taught me one thing, it is that no matter where you go you can make the best out of it so just keep striving towards your goal.
I am a student at ELMS it is a average school (like most of our grades) the teacher don't care about things and you might only get a few good teacher in a grade i have been there for two year 5th and 6th the kids there are very rambunctious but other than that the school is great i am a ok student.thank you
My children attend ELMS. One child has attended since 8th grade and the other has attended since 5th grade. Some of the teachers lack passion and drive to teach and mold young minds. They are what I would call'paycheck' teachers. They do not attempt to go beyond the textbook and paper method. There are only a handful of teachers at the school who are really trying to 'teach' the students. These few teachers have very good classroom management skills. Behavioral problems / issues are handled in a way that it does not disturb others from learning. Basically, these teachers have their classroom in order. They have objectives, goals and expectations for their students and themselves as well. My second child has been fortunate to have such teachers. My first child on the other hand has not been as fortunate. Disruptive behavior is a problem
My son has been at ELMS since 5th grade. He is now a Freshman. The teachers have not been helpful in motivating or challenging my son to reach his full potential. To date, most of his classes have not been intellectually stimulating. He has been taking honors classes for the past 2 years and is still bored. Parents are encouraged to be involved with Fund Raisers and the PTSO. The main topic of the majority of PTSO meetings has been School Fund Raisers. Raising money for things that will improve the quality of education at the school is fine. However, if the students are not stimulated to grow and enhance their intelligence, the fund raising efforts are fruitless. The concert band is really good. The sad part is that with over 100 band members only 6 - 10 students are ever represented at booster meetings or Band fund raising activities.
I have been a student at East Literature Magnet for two years now, this being my graduating year, and have greatly enjoyed my time at East. I have had the pleasure of working with some of the finest teachers I've ever known while attending. I am very proud to call myself an East Eagle. The school is located in a richly historical area of Nashville and has only enhanced my perception of life. I love our school building itself, it has been newly renovated, yet still posseses the great qualities that tell of time. More importantly, I truly love the variation of students. East Literature is ethnically blessed and provides and encourages room for an even better learning experience. I will truly miss my High School years at East!
