This school is great. My daughter switched from Alicia Chacon to Eastwood Knolls and she is doing so much better. The stress level has gone down and her grades and understanding has gone way up. This school is not easier but more effective. The class work is not so paper based and students actually enjoy class. Mr. Medrano is a great teacher.
This is a great school, Im currently a middle school student there and i have been there since kinder. One thing that I have to say is that the administration doesnt motivate the kids to want to go to school (at least the middle schoolers).
I went to this school for many years and really cant think of any negative comments about it. The teachers are great because they push the students and unlike many other schools, they actually care. There are also many extracurricular activities. I highly recomend this school.
I think that this is one the very best schools you could go to in El Paso. I am currently a middle schooler, and i love it. So much motivation, and all my teachers are extrodinary! I would recommend this school very highly. Yes, it is a bit old, but I have been here since kindergarten, and I think it is a wonderful school!
this is a really good school, i attend the middle school and is not that bad the teachers are ok, kinda hard the pre ap classes are really good and i personally think we have the best band and the best band instructer!!!!!! but the school is really old
Up until now, Eastwood Knolls has been a great school. My second grade daughter has learned so much and loves the teachers that she has had. I see a lot of motivation and encouragement for the students to excell in their studies. For example, close to the end of every month, a student doing really good is picked from every class to be what they call the 'Dynamite Dragon'. They reward these students during the monthly PTA meetings with a ceremony where they call each student to the front and give them a 'Dynamite Dragon' Certificate. They also have a pizza party for those students and their parents during that week. This is just one of many activities that make the students feel special and motivated to do better at Eastwood Knolls. There is a lot of involvement from parents and teachers. I highly recommend this k-8th grade school.
Overall this is an excellent school for your child to attend in grades K-5. The middle school section of this school leaves something to be desired. There seems to be no support or encouragement for the students. There seems to be one or two teachers, in grades 6-8, that should really think about getting out of the teaching profession. I would really think twice about having your child attend middle school at EKS.
