My twin boys were bullied a lot in 2nd and 3rd grade we have gone to the principles and nothing was done. I think Epes is a horrible school! I cannot wait until we move so they will no longer have to go to this horrible School ! The front desk staff always gives us trouble and harassing us whenever we come in.

My daughter attended Kindergarten there I can't speak for all the teachers but the kindergarten teacher she has was very impatient intolerant which is insane because her class was filled with. 4 and 5 year olds. She didn't keep a watchful eye either because every other week I had to let her know of isses my child and other children had. My daughter learned why she needed but was not challenged. I will say I enjoyed the extras they had like pizza parties and educational field trips which always included parents.

My son attended Epes for kindergarden and 1st grade and I must say that I miss this school. The teachers were awesome and worked hard to make sure their students learned, Out of all the teachers that my son has had, I remember the teachers at Epes the most. There was no favoritism shown to any student and the principle is always seen working throughout the school and engaging in what the teachers and students where doing. The office staff are so friendly and the school itself is very clean and well maintained on the inside. There is always a PTA table at every event and they make everyone feel welcomed to join. Excellent school, can't say enough about it,

This is my grandson's first year at Epes as a Kindergartener. I have been very pleased with his progress, both academically and socially. He loves his teacher and assistant, and looks forward to going to school every day. As an observer of the teachers and staff at Epes, I see people who are caring and friendly, as well as supportive of parent involvement. Students appear orderly and respectful. As a retired educator from NNPS, I know that the success of a school depends on everyone! The more involved parents are in their child's education, the more successful the learning experiences will be.

We are a military family and we have seen our fair share of schools during my husbands 17 year career. I have to say that Epes takes the cake for the worst. I am not going to label all teachers but I can say that my daughters teacher who has somehow managed to teach for 30+ years is one of the most impatient, non-understanding, and rude people I have met. She calls the children out in front of the class, reads the agenda (notes from parents) in front of the class, curses in class. I have spoke to the principle and she is not concerned or involved whatsoever. She was suppose to return a call a few times and never did. They do not seem to care about the children or parents concerns at all. If teachers no longer enjoy teaching then get out of it ... *WAITING ON SUPERMAN IN NEWPORT NEWS VA*
