The school has been good for our children. We especially like the after school programs. The teachers are great and friendly. We attend as many PTA meetings as we can. Though this year it seems there are fewer PTA activities. From a communication standpoint we love the teacher newsletters though an area of improvement would be more online communication from the principal like they do in other schools. Another area of improvement I would like to suggest would be to improve preparation for homework from the early grades. It seems like homework skyrockets out of nowhere which is difficult for small children who are new to the process.

Based on the last 4 years of sending our son to EVES, the teachers are excellent and the student activities are outstanding. There is also a lot healthy diversity from a student standpoint. However, the school lacks the same diversity from a staff and parent-involvement standpoint. This also points to lack of sufficient action by the school leadership (not necessarily the PTA) to encourage parent involvement. Some efforts have been made to involve parents but interestingly enough, there are indications that parent presence in the classroom is a burden and not welcomed by staff. For example, my husband who wants to be active in our son's life and make a strong impression as a father, was encouraged to sign up for the watchdog program through the PTA. We were shocked when he was only allowed to spend 15 min. in the class with him before being sent elsewhere! The teacher seemed concerned when he asked to stay longer which didn't come across well. We were also told that the principal was the one who created the schedule which concerns us. I love this school but hope they can figure out how to involve parents in more meaningful ways and not just for show.

My son used to be autistic. The previous school, Willow Springs, didn't want to deal with him. They gave him labels (e.g. defiant) and sent him home when he became problematic instead of finding ways to help him. Eagle View was very welcoming. They evaluated him and we found him eligible for an IEP, which Willow Springs never bothered to do. In 1st grade, they provided a teacher to stay by his side to support him as he struggled to cope. They worked with me, asked what worked at home and had no issue trying anything to help him succeed. Eventually I treated him and he recovered from his autistic behavior, although he still needed support for his ADD. Without their support and open communication, I never would have been able to help him. We often communicated on a daily basis. When parents and school are on the same page, the child is more likely to succeed. Never once they made him feel rejected. They always assured me, "We're a team, and we'll figure this out together." My son loved Eagle View, and I owe his success to their nurture and unconditional support. This is a public school, but they are what every school should be. They help every child to succeed. No child left behind.

Eagle View Elementary offers a caring and loving environment, a diverse group of students and educators, and a vast array of PTA sponsored after school programs that help nurture the children's academic and personal growth within a safe environment. Greater funding for larger outdoor playground would be a nice addition in the future.

My son and daughter have attended Eagleview for the past 3 year and have loved it. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. The teachers are great and make sure that the kids are working at the level they need to be. The Principal and VP are very involved and nice. The PTA is great and very involved in the afterschool activities.

My son is on his way to 2nd grade at EV and has had a very productive experience. His reading and writing skills have improved, he is engaged deeply in Math and his intellect has grown by leaps and bounds. The school is nurturing and the regular communications (i.e., weekly teach emails, school newsletter) helps keep us informed and connected.

We've had a fabulous experience in the two years we've been at Eagle View. The staff goes above and beyond. The home/school connection is fabulous. The school-wide and/or grade-wide unity builders are inventive and allow each child to shine. LOVE the SOS program and how uplifting it is for the students.

The teachers are excellent and go the extra mile. The time my daughters teachers have taken to make sure she is doing her best is phenomenal. They are accessible and do a good job of communicating with me. Many teachers are young but still skilled and bring an enthusiasm and level of participation in the classroom and in extracurricular activities that makes eagle view shine. There is exceptional parental involvement in activities. Through the PTA there are a lot of enrichment programs math club, robotics, foreign language study.

My experience with school is not good at all. I asked almost ten parents. They experience is same as mine. 1. More than half of Teachers are fresh grads. 2. GT teacher discourages lot for some reason. Has attitude. Teacher does not recommend unless kids get exceptionally good score. (More than required). 3. This is good school for AHAD kids. 4. This is no good place if you are aspiring for your kids to high standards. 5. Very few kids go to GT School from this school. 6. There is not encouragement from class teachers. 7. There are very few clubs in the school. 8. Teachers give less homework. Especially writing. 9. Teacher and parents communication is none. Teachers do not use Blackboard as they do not have time. No Newsletters. 10. Teachers do not have time for extras. They are struggling to do cover basic curriculum. 11. No enrichment for kids. Kids will 90 95 cognitive skills downgraded (homework wise) to basic level for class teacher s convenience. My kids had lost good vocabulary, writing skills and good analytic skills year by year as their score not exceptionally good for GT centre by not getting challenged enough.

My son has completed two years in this school and so far the experience has been truly positive for him. Students are encouraged to reach their full potential but within an environment that is not intimidating. Fourth grade teacher Ms. Zeman certainly deserves high commendation.

By far, Excellent school. The staff is wonderful and excited about the well being of your children. My children love to learn and were exciting about going every day. I, myself, volunteered all the time. Unfortunately our family have had to relocate, but we are returning to the area very soon, mainly b/c of this school. Our children deserve the best learning experience and EVE has it.

My son is a 1st grader at Eagle View, we started in 2007- the 2nd year of a brand new school just opened in 2006-2007 school year. I can not say enough about the Prinicpal, Debra Tyler, the staff, the teachers - Mr. Campet is the best! even the art, and music teachers are great, All of the teachers have such great Energy & Compassion! My son has ADHD, ODD & OCD and many reading, writing, and speech delays and has done outstanding here at Eagle View. They view each child as an individual and base their learning goals around their ability not that of their peers. The school is amazingly diverse in the cultures, languages and talents of the families that attend Eagle View. The PTA is AWESOME! Great programs, support and activites for everyone. Thanks to all of you! Do you and your child a favor Choose Eagle View!
