    its very safe and are teacher help us if we need help and help us with are class work

    I transfered my child to East Clark from a Charter School after a terrible experience with the Charter School. I was a little nervous about him attending a Cleveland Public School but I must say I am expressed. My child loves going to East Clark. He's getting excellent grades and the staff is wonderful. They offer many academic and extra curricular activities such as boy scouts the girls club and sports. They try really hard to help their student achieve academically. The only downside is there is very little parent involvement. I think the school could see better performance out of the students if more parents where involved.

    The school is very poorly run. The principal seems to imagine brutality and screaming is the equivalent of discline and treats the staff no better than she treats the students. She is abusive and bossy and has no manners.

    The office staff has no professionalism at all they treated me like I was a convict of some sort when I tried to pick my child up when I got them to understand who I was then they acted like I was really dumb. I am so happy I took him out of this mismanaged school the teachers were good but the office staff needs to go.

    I have had nothing but a headache since my daughter started school here two years ago. The women who work in the office who give parents their first impression of the school are very unprofessional. The office personnel made me feel on several occasions that I was interrupting them when I needed to ask a question. Their telephone ettiquette leaves a lot to be desired as I was disconnected several times after listening to laughing and background talking and feeling like I had not had my questions answered. Although the cafeteria staff was awesome they didn't have enough help and were overwhelmed trying to feed and monitor 100+ children once. The Principal of this school tries very hard but can't do it without proper staff.
