    The school secetary who sits up front to the left is rude they do not help children who are behind saying "give them time they will catch up". Many of the teacher rooms are 'busy' and not appropriate for children with sensory issues. Principal seems to care so I am not sure exactly what is going on.

    This school is horrible! The staff does not care about the kids the people in the office are rude and the teacher my child had was so mean to the kids that they were scared of her. Every parent I talked to felt this way. The school won't let you be in your child's class to observe and they will not allow you to change your child's teacher if you are unhappy. We are eating $2000 in fines for breaking our lease just to move our child out of this school.

    I grew up in the CKSD and was pleased when my children had the chance to as well but I am very disappointed in Esquire Hills Elementary school. My child doesn't seem challenged. In North Kitsap he was tested for the gifted program but he is now an average student.

    The overall experience is not that great. Some of the teachers are frequently absent not organized and careless. The PTA leadership is quite disappointing as well and run very mismanaged fundraisers. The children are always rewarded with hard candy and gum. The lunch menu is just as bad as drive thru. The good part is that there are a few good teachers who do work hard.

    The office staff loves to gossip. Class size is enormous. Safety of the child really not a priority to this school. Academically they spend more time during the school year preparing for the the WASL tests. I transferred my children to another elementary.

    You can tell that some of the teachers are there only for a job not for the kids. They seem to lack responsibilty for the childs safety. The elementry school I attended in California did not allow children to just leave there classrooms with out supervision. The whole classroom walked in single file to buses to put children who road on the bus on then the rest of the class would go behind the fence line and wait for parents to pick them up (for safety of child). There is also of lack punishment for horrasment between students.

    We have three children that currently attend Esquire Hills Elementary. We have been very pleased with the level of commitment from all the teachers that we have experienced. Our principal is very involved and the teachers seem to be truly focused on the task of teaching and they all have done an amazing job with our children.
