I would like to thank my daughter's teacher, Mrs Dykes for being her advocate everyday and showing her what it means to care. Everyday my daughter is greeted with a smile and most importantly a teacher that cares about her wellbeing as a whole child. It is not just about the academics in this classroom. For this I am grateful.
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.
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.
