Eshelman Avenue Elementary School Reviews
Horrible school!!!! [content removed by School Finder Review Team]. They just started a new "policy." PARENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER SCHOOL WHEN DROPPING KIDS OFF...ONLY AT THE GATE. They've gone too far. I'm a PARENT AND SHOULD BE ABLE TO DROP OFF MY CHILD INSIDE NOT OUTSIDE!
Thank you Ms.Christhomo, Mrs.Brown, Ms.Morton, Ms.Miyashita, Mrs.Smith, and Ms.Morton(again)! (Edited for grammar by Education.com staff)
So far I found good teachers in this school starting:
Pre-K: Ms. Lomas, excellent! 5 stars....
1st Grade: Mrs. Ferguson, excellent! 5 stars...
1st Grade Novotney, I like her, the only thing I did not have the chance to see her class ( I did not have the chance to volunteer) but the way I see my son's work that she corrected I know that she is very good teacher.
2nd Grade Mrs. Montes, excellent! 5 stars...
2nd Grade Mrs. Yu, excellent! 5 stars...
These teachers cares about their students, they have superb class disciplines, organized and most of all they are fun and they are devoted to teach the students. Frustrating too because some teachers are not really concern.
Disappointed. Out of 3 years at this school, we got one good teacher, but she was out on maternity leave so we only had her a few months. Very disappointed. The curriculum is good, but the teachers are more focused on state scores and stats rather than on making sure that all the children are learning appropriately!
My son has gone to Eshelman Avenue Elementary School for 3 years. I can't express what this school has done for his growth. The teachers give their all to their students. The teachers have a lot of children in their classes but seem to give to every kid in that class. Great job, Eshelman.
