    My child was in Kindergarten and was isolated in the back of the classroom facing the back wall while all the other students were at group tables up front because he was disruptive. He's a 5 year old boy! Of course they're talkative and silly! Despite positive reinforcement ideas that I suggested to the teacher as I am a teacher myself the method of discipline was multiple time outs in the office and isolation in the classroom. He became so withdrawn and depressed that we had to remove him from the school. The administrators did nothing to address our concerns.

    I absolutely love Eastwood I went there. It was a great school and I will never forget it! I miss it so much and I miss all of my old teachers. Mostly I miss Mrs.Wolf and Mrs.Adams!

    A very well supported and parent active school. Eastwood is very dominate in extra-curricular activities primarily due to the large number of students who participate. Leadership could be a little stronger and free thinking than it is.
