    East Stroudsburg Elementary is a very good school with amazing teachers and great PTO involvement.

    East Stroudsburg Elementary has been flagged by the State as a failing school.We were given a choice to remove our child from the school because of the failure rate. The Principal is crazy and can't seem to handle disciplinary issues fairly. Some teachers are good but if your child happens to get a teacher who is not good then you are doomed. So far had a 50-50 okayish experience with this school.

    My daughter started her first year of Kindergarten at ESE and she did great! She had the most wonderful and dedicated teachers to break her out of her shell. In the beginning of the year she was very quiet and did not participate in class much at all and by the second semester she was motivated and driven to be and do her best! ESE is a wonderful school and I look forward to this upcoming year!

    'No playground equipment!' That is my children's cheif complaint. Apparently the district left the playground equipment up to the PTO. And they are not allowed to speak during Lunch. This is a newly built school that is 3 stories tall. And seems designed more for Middle or Highschoolers than elementary Students. Oh There seems to be plenty of room for Athletic fields. There is little parking left over for parents after the Teachers/Staff arrive. What were they thinking? This is a school built for approx 800 students with the tinyest cafeteria I have ever seen. Just like any school you have different teachers w/different teaching styles. Challenge classes are available. The PTO has done an excellent job raising funds for the children and that playground the school so desperately needs.
