    Our school "hugs you". The families and staff believe in Excellence Effort and Excitement! My daughter can't wait to walk into school each and every day. The entire staff is dedicated and the PTO is amazing!

    My son attended kindergarton here and the class was out of control. It semed more like a daycare than a school. I had an incident were a volunteer staff member thought she had the right to parent my child when I was standing there.

    East Falmouth Elementary School is a Peacebuilder School and we practice what we preach. There is a caring atmosphere here which begins with our principal and travels throughout the school. The staff and the children care about each other and are proud of our school. It's a wonderful place to learn and work.

    After my last child completes 4th grade I will have 21 consecutive years at East Falmouth Elementary. I am proud to say that our teachers are second to none and the same can be said of our PTO. Our retiring principal has been an outstanding leader and will be sadly missed. This school has instilled a sense of pride in my children as well as lifetimes of wonderful memories!

    This is an amazing school. I went there as a child and now my oldest is in first grade and my youngest will be starting preschool this coming Sept and I couldn't be happier. They have the greatest staff and those secrataries are ontop of everything. They know every child and their parents that walk through those doors. Its a very safe welcoming and fun place to learn for the children!!!

    East Falmouth School is a great place to learn. It is a hidden jewel on Cape Cod with dedicated teachers and staff. The PTO is one of the best ever dedicated to helping the students. The students are amazing working hard on their academics along with being peacemakers in all that they do. East Falmouth is a special school and I am proud to have been a part of this school for over 18 years.

    This school has my second grader begging to go to school even when he's sick. He loves reading and learning and that is the foundation for a great education.

    My second grade son loves learning and is always proud of his great scores on his work. School is something he looks forward too with anticipation.

    I love the teachers and the support my children get. Very impressed with the way problems are solved and their Peace Builder program. What makes the school special is the Principal greeting the students every morning with a 'Good Morning East Falmouth!' My only gripe is having the choice of buying an ice cream after their lunch which they've already been served a dessert.

    My daughter loves the preschool class. Ms Moran & Ms Dunn are both seasoned professionals & a dynamic duo!

    My children went to East Falmouth Elementary School and received a wonderful education. The teachers were 'the best'!!! Now my grandchild is attending the Pre K class at East Falmouth Elementary School. Her teacher Miss Mary Dunn is fabulous and Shannon loves her. What a great introduction to her future school years there!

    East Falmouth is a school that really allows parents to be involved in everyday activties. The communication from school is really great too since children don't always share their day as much as we'd like to hear about it!!
