Eastlake Middle School Reviews
I have reviewed this school in the past and it never gets posted.
On the first day of the new school year, my daughter and literally hundreds of other students had to sit outside for the entire day. They were not allowed inside to attend class because the school did not have their innoculation records. We were not informed we needed it.
As a conscientious parent, I completed all the enrollment forms and submitted them early. My daughter was transferring from a nearby elementary school so the transition was easy.
If there was something lacking in the enrollment paperwork, why weren't we informed before the first day of school?
From what I see Eastlake Middle is a poorly operated facility. The parents dropping off their kids in the morning are jammed up because their is nobody directing traffic. Kids cross the street one at a time causing cars to back up all the way to Hunte pkwy.
My son went there for two years and we never had the opportunity to meet with his teachers. In his first year he was placed in a math class he had successfully completed the year before. We were told there was no room in the advanced class. He sat in a class for the entire year that had no benefit... and he still had to do the homework.
The school is comfortably nestled in an upscale community where the grounds are clean and relatively vandal free. It just seems like a facade. The staff should be a lot more concerned about the students.
My son attended this school as a 9th and 10th grader from 2008 to 2011. He had to repeat the math course he had already completed and excelled at when he was an 8th grader because the staff seemed ambivalent about his needs. He was and still is a straight A student but he said the teachers at Eastlake Middle seemed bored and uninterested and were therefore dull and uninspiring. There was never a parent teacher conference. The school lacks accountability.
He rarely bought lunch because the line was too long. There was never a bench or table available and too many kids had their lunch at the same time. Why don't they stagger the meal times more effectively. Is it to accommodate the teaching staff?
When I would drop him off at the school in the morning it was chaotic. Students were crossing the street one at a time while cars waited to pass. Build a bridge, install a traffic signal or have someone direct traffic before a student is injured.
This school is clean and pretty but it has little substance and no character.
