    This is the best elementary school! The administration is caring and focused. The teachers are amazing! I feel like it is a privilege to have my child at this school. It is better than any private school I have visited.

    Eastwood is a fantastic school. The administration and teachers are top notch. Parent participation and involvement is probably the best in Decatur. All of our children are attending or have attended Eastwood and received a fantastic education.

    My child has had a wonderful education. The teachers are very traditional and they incorporate creative strategies to make learning fun. Most importantly students learn the basics and have a great foundation from which to grow as they enter the middle school years. As an active teacher I am very impressed with my child's educational process at Eastwood.
