Eastgate Elementary is a great school. The teachers are exceptional and the community is kind.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 6, 2013

I'm currently a student at Eastgate and the education is great! It's the perfect public school. The teachers are nice, but if you take advantage of them, you will be in trouble. Which is good. Teachers shouldn't be too nice or mean. It is a bit hard to make friends in big grades like fourth in fifth, though. So if you're planning on taking your child to Eastgate, see if they'd like soccer, basketball or foursquare; if they aren't into it yet. It can help the new student make friends. Who knows? They might think sports is fun! And popular kids aren't mean in Eastgate. They're very nice and smart actually. If your kid doesn't like sports, the new student can join in with the artists and more. Each class has about 27 students. Also, school lunches in Eastgate Elementary do not serve sloppy joes. There's a schedule. They can serve pasta, burgers, macaroni, fish nuggets, pizza and more! I know, this is like a paragraph long. So to put this whole thing in simple words, great teachers, great lunches, great activities and most importantly, great education.

Academic scores are ok but not exceptional. We've experienced discipline problems both in the classroom and schoolyard. We are considering moving to another school in Bellevue.

Eastgate Elementary is a great little school that has a cohesive teaching staff that works together for the benefit of children. We are very pleased with the quality of education provided to our children and their level of preparation as they move on to middle school.

Teachers, principal, and PTA are very helpful and try to do everything to improve the school quality. Academics - just normal nothing exceptional.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
