    "Union East Elementary is disappointing. My daughter is currently in Kindergarten here. The teachers do not have the available resources to properly teach these children. There is no testing system to see which students need extra help or those who may be a bit advanced. Therefore a number of students are suffering and not getting the education they need. The children in her class evidently, from teacher comments and my daughters account, have behavior issues. Guns, death and sex are some of the first things my daughter learned upon starting kindergarten. There is VERY LITTLE parental involvement in this school. The ones who are struggle to keep this school afloat with constant fundraisers. From day one Carrier Coach has been late or early with times varying within 30-40minute windows. The bus driver has changed no less than 10 times since the of the year and we're in March now. Calls to Carrier coach, the school and the district bussing manager have proven unsuccessful. There have been times my 5 year old daughter has had to direct the driver to our home. In short this school is a disappointment and planning and sacrifices should be made to AVOID this school at all costs."

    "This District is not for children who need extra help, they did not help my children at all!!! You would think being out here and the teachers pay is soo well that i wouldn't have to basically tuter my own child even when he clearly needed professional help, drive them to school when they r being bullied on the bus because no one would help, and fight and i mean fight for my oldest to get into a special school because they wouldn't or couldn't help ( i think wouldn't they get thousands of $$ for "special" kids to be there from the goverment just so they can shove these kids through the cracks) SO IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN WITH "SPECIAL NEEDS DO NOT SEND THEM TO CHEEKTOWAGA CENTRAL!!!!!!!!"

    "My son Michael is now entering his second year at Union East and I think he is getting a top notch education. The teachers and principal are loving and caring for each student. I have other nieces and nephew who are in better school districts (or so they claim) and I believe Michael is getting a better education in a more diverse setting. Cheektowaga is making sure that they learn that everyone is different and that you should be proud of who you are and where you come from. They make sure that each child has a chance to tell in what ways they celebrate holidays. There mucic and art activities are excellent, last year they had a play and a music concert. I believe that the parent involvement could be a little higher, but I blam the parents not the school for that."

    "Cheektowaga schools do not compare favorably to suburban schools and is not a good place to enroll a gifted child. Though I detest the idea of contributing to the movement of able parents from the city to further out in the suburbs, I feel like this school district abandoned my daughter starting in Kindergarten. Cheektowaga schools have to spend thier resources on lower-achieving students and don't have a nuturing environment for students with more academic potential."
