Community ratings & reviews

  • (6 years ago)

    We have been in the school district for 9 years with 3 different children and we think that the East Elementary is great.

  • (10 years ago)

    All three of my children have attended (one still does) East. The teachers are dedicated hardworking and truly care about the students. Due to changes in the school's enrollment in the last two years the discipline problems have increased substantially. I would like to see these issues handled in a less tolerant manner. Regardless of skin color all students at East should be held to the same rules.
