Eastwood Center is located in Baltimore, MD and is one of 112 elementary schools in Baltimore County Public Schools School District. It is a magnet school that serves 197 students in grades PK-5.
Magnet schools are public schools that offer a specialized curriculum or educational philosophy, often with a specific focus or theme. Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs. See Eastwood Center's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Eastwood Center had 13 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Maryland average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.
The school has smaller class sizes which is good for the students. I feel the school does not acknowledge when a student has a developmental or learning problems nor do they offer help to the kids. If a parent fights for help thru an IEP, the school still does not do as they are suppose to but they try to cover their tracks. On a different note this is the only school in the area that I hear of not doing field trips to places such as the Smithsonian museum. Its great that is a "enviromental green" school but there is still other history to be taught.
