East Grand School Reviews
The wonderful thing about this school is that it is small enough that there is a feeling of family that is missing in a larger school environment. The teachers & staff there are very helpful & most of them obviously love the students & enjoy their jobs. Since moving to the area, both my son & daughter have improved dramatically, both academically & socially. I can't say enough good about this school, its staff, & its teaching ethics. I wish there were more small schools like this where every student receives the individual attention they deserve.
this school should be a study in nepotism. it truly is a bad school. the staff is in need of major, major training in every department. too many teachers do not have all of their qualifications (getting letters every year saying so-so is WORKING TOWARD CERTIFICATION is not comforting when it's the same teachers every year). the school board does not handle complaints confidentially and when gone to state level they seem to pass the buck as well. it's a small town and you definitely have to get through the small town mind set before you'll make it through this school at all because unfortunately if the school has a personal problem with a parent its taken out on the child
This school is a joke and should be shut down. I moved so I wouldn't have to send another child there. The behavior of the staff seems to be overlooked. But in reality,it is down right criminal. Yet that was exactly how it was when my child attended. To complain is a waste of time......everyone is either related , dating or just don't take their job seriously. And confidentiality is non-existent there.
