My experience is that when you have a concern about a teacher the administration takes days to get back with you. I've had one teacher in particular tell me that she has to yell at the kids to get them to listen because they lack structure in their homes. Inappropriate music is played during physical education class but there is nobody to complain to. My child came home asking me what a "sexy lady" was because of the hip hop music being played in his PE class. It's sad that the children are exposed to such things at an early age. Ecoff use to be such a good school.
I feel that some of the reviews here are totally unfair. My LD child excelled at this school. The staff and principle went above and beyond to accommodate her needs. Although there is no dyslexia program, she was given the proper amount of instruction to help her move beyond it. It is not the schools fault that there is no dyslexia program. I The fault lies with the state.
I am unimpressed with how Chesterfield county in general handles their "special" children. No Child left behind is more important than making sure that child is actually learning. I find it highly inappropriate that my 11 year old daughter is only reading on a 2nd grade level and each IEP is the same as the previous year with no recognition the current "teaching" style is not working.
Good school but watch out for your kids launch money. My kid's records and some money on my launch money was wiped out and the money under 3.00 some how disappear. nobody can tell what happen. After asking to the school, they gave me credit and records were posted it and after three days the money was gone. the launch records also get Mysteriously deleted.
Lack of Organization for this school, Clearly do not help the kids, just do what they can to get by. Missing communication with the teachers. They do not check to see if the child is prepared, or check to see they bring homework home. Surely are quick to complain about your kid. Give no homework/classwork description to new parents to the area. None of there schools make AYP.
Ecoff Elementary has been a wonderful school for my son and daughter! My son has been attending since Kindergarten and moved onto Middle School with Honors. My daughter loves Ecoff and is looking forward to many rewarding years. As a parent there are many opportunities to be involved in your child's education at Ecoff. All of the teachers are open to parental involvement in their child's education, understand the reality that it takes a Community to raise a child and have readily answered any questions I have had throughout the years. I appreciate all of the hard work and dedication of the Principal, Staff and Teachers!!
The staff and administration are great this is by far the best school in chesterfield. My son went to OB Gates for kindergarten and has been at Ecoof ever since.
One of the best schools that will allow your child to get off to a great start!
You become part of a family when you have a child at Ecoff! Even though my child has moved on to Middle School I still find myself missing the teachers we came to know during her time at Ecoff!
The teachers and staff make it a point to know your child and our family. My first year at the school the principle came up to me at back to school night (without my child) and commented about him by name. I was amazed that she knew exactly who we were and knew our son when there are well over 700 students in the school. Quality education along with the personal touch!
Ecoff is a place where all students can thrive. Cannot say enough good things about the school and surrounding community.
The faculty and staff are great! Everyone has a positive attitude and all students strive to do their best. Everyone is friendly and it's a great place to be at.
I consider the administration and staff at Ecoff Elementary School family because they show their love and care for our children every day, going above and beyond the call of duty! They have high expectations of the students and strive to help each one be successful. The school has very active and supportive parents and community partners that help provide our children with a first rate education!
Ecoff is a family oriented school that helps every student reach their potential, both academically and socially.
I love Ecoff Elementary School because the teachers and staff and always warm and welcoming. I am so thankful that my children can attend a school that I feel safe with them there.
The teachers and administration are wonderful. They are always willing to go that extra mile to ensure the students have what they need.
Ecoff works very hard to involve parents and the communities as partners to support the success of our students. They don't stop at sufficient, but strive for the best from every student, so that every student can reach their full potential.
Ecoff is dedicated to student success both academically and socially. Its warm and nurturing environment is filled with administrators, teachers,instructional assistants and volunteers that go the extra mile for the betterment of all their students! I commend them for their committment and dedication in believing that all students can learn!
This school is one of the best ones in the county, because its core values they meet them to the limits, they the children work very hard to do their best on tests, bench marks, sols, etc. They have scored highest in our county in the last 2 yrs and our teachers work very very hard to teach our children the core values of learning respect, and what is expected of them when it comes time for them to take their tests. This school has a Awesome Principal too Mrs. Crowell-Redd and Ast. Principal Mr. Minter they are the Best 2 people you would want to have your children in their care all day long , I feel this school deserves to win an award of this kind , they work very hard each and everyday and I have hyave seen it first hand, because I have volunteerewd there sometimes, so I know how well they do things. Thank you so much! Tammy Foster a proud parent of honor roll student of Ecoff school In Chesterfield,Va.
