    Easterbrook Discovery School has a great learning Environment. Teachers support you and makes you feel like you fit in. I don't see any bullying but this is from my small perspective. The middle school students can also interact with the younger students by doing reading buddies. The teachers support you so so much. It's such a great school!

    I have 3 children at this school and EDS is a school we elected through intra-district transfer. I am so glad we did! We have attended this school for 6 years and counting. One of my kids has an autism spectrum disorder and ADHD and is very intelligent. The teachers here have done an excellent job of both differentiating curriculum to keep this bright child challenged and supporting weaknesses through various accommodations. The multi-age classroom format (each child has the same teacher for two years) has allowed the teachers to really understand the kids and figure out what is needed for growth -- and then do it instead of needing to hand it off to the next grade teacher. The principal is excellent and all the staff is genuinely caring and committed to helping every child be successful. I can't rave enough about EDS!

    My kids love EDS and most importantly they have developed a love a learning while at this school. I have a 1st grader and a 4th grader. My 1st grader enthusiastically goes to school every day always coming home saying that her day was "fabulous." They work on large themes such as the ocean or the rain forest and she has been able to tell me all sorts of interesting facts about the animals and the ecosystems. My son also loves school. He was able to start playing cello and receives weekly lessons free of charge at school. The program is dynamic and interesting for the kids while it teaches higher level thinking writing and communication skills. While the kids do take tests it's not oriented to the test which I think is very important and why I wouldn't want my kids to go to Cupertino no matter how high their API's are compared to EDS's. One other thing that is unique about EDS is that the teachers work extremely well together collaborating and helping each other. This is readily apparent. The principal is extremely well-loved and respected by parents teachers and staff alike. It definitely shows!

    EDS is a great school with an excellent principal and assistant principal dedicated teachers and a philosophy of education that is hard to find these days. The school teaches to the whole child and values art music PE and field trips. The school works hard to build a sense of community and hosts many educational and fun family events throughout the year. The thing that I most like about the program is the parent participation in the classroom. Many studies have found that this allows for better differential learning and alleviates pressures that our schools are faced with in the light of budget cuts and increased class sizes. In addition I get to see how my child is performing in school and address things before they become a problem. I also get to know the other kids and teachers in the school in a way that would be impossible if I weren't involved in that way. My only complaint would be that more parents aren't involved because participation isn't mandatory.

    Please send your student to this school if you are looking for an elementary school or a middle school for your child. I'm an 8th grader and I have been going to this school for 8 years. I started going here from kindergarten and progressed up onto the 7th grade by the way this is a joint middle and elementary school. in 8th grade i moved to fremont not by choice but well my family couldnt afford a cheap place here. Fremont schools are horrible. I have attended Thornton Junior High for 2 weeks now and I hate it. It lacks teacher support and all the staff are there for the job not to help the students. Easterbrook Discovery School is the right school for your child. I repeat it is the right school for your child. Do not even think about sending your middle school child to Thornton. Don't move there. Easterbrook Discovery School has the support caring teachers and staff that Thornton does not. I love everyone there. The kids and staff were all friendly to me while i was there for my 8 years. it would have been 9 if i hadn't moved. i still hope i can move back before i move on to high school. Easterbrook Discovery For Life! BELIEVE IT! I loved it here I'm sure you will.

    My son goes to kindergarten. This school is really special with the mix of K-1 and 2-3 so older kids can help younger kids. The parent participation makes it a very nice place to be where my wife and I feel really involved in the community. We influence the formal education of our son and his peers directly with in class reading the cooking program getting to see that this is a place where teachers and parents care.

    Extremely happy with the great projects that kids at all grades get to do focus on teaching real life skills and emphasis on positive behavior. All the teachers are awesome and are very accessible to parents and love the parent participation aspect of the school.

    This is a wonderful school with excellent teachers. My daughter's 3rd grade teacher was a Phd from Stanford. She's been here since Kindergarten. Don't be fooled by the API scores since despite what the scores you see she got a perfect score in Math and in the top bracket in reading and writing as well. The API scores here are cumulative of the diverse population this school serves unlike other schools in this area which are just not as diverse. I like the diversity here- which is missing in other schools at Moreland school distirct and neighboring Cupertino. Now in 4th grade my daughter once again has an excellent teacher and is really happy to go to school everyday.

    It is a school where children can learn using different 'intelligences' it is not all read and write. It is math in cooking and writing in gardening and so on.
