    "My daughter has been there since kindergarten. I have never ever been happier with a school. EW is amazing. Mr. A is also a wonderful principal. There is a lot of communication, and every teacher my daughter has had has been there 20+ years. They know their stuff and have great parent communication skills. If it weren't for her kindergarten teacher she wouldn't be reading at a 4th grade level in first grade. There is NOTHING I don't love about this school. Even when we had a bullying issue, the school reacted VERY quickly and were proactive about the bully. Couldn't have asked for a better response. I don't want to move for fear she won't be in this school!!!! I even want my son to have all the same teachers!! Guess we are staying on Jefferson for another 10 years!! Thanks EW for everything!"

    "I have a 4th grader and a 1st grader at East Ward and my experience has been one filled with only positives. The teachers have been extraordinary and our "new" principal is wonderful. He knows how to communicate effectively with the teachers, parents and students. Our 4th grader is in the "DEEP" (gifted) program and looks forward to meeting the challenges that are given to him each week. Our 1st grader has gone from not wanting to go to school to getting up before I can even wake her so that she can get there! The Home and School and PTO are active and responsible for so many wonderful activities, fundraisers and special "treats" for the children! I highly recommend this school!"

    "Very disappointing school (and Kindergarten teacher). Our son, who is a nice and smart boy that can read since he was 3 years old, always looks scared and frustrated, saying that everything he does is a "mistake" and "nothing is allowed". He has not learned much at school (his teacher even told us that he knows a lot more than most of his classmates), not to mention the rudeness of the secretary, who is one of the harshest people I have ever met."

    "Well the proof is in their test scores. Things have become all politics at that school and it's a shame because the kids there are not being held responsible for their behavior when their parents complain enough to get them off the hook. And it is a slippery slope that has left them with lower scores. My family has recently moved within the district to a new school and I am relieved to have the experience of the teachers, a warm and kind principal, well behaved children throughout the school with structure and a staff that cares about them all. You will not find those things at East Ward. I cannot guess as to why East Ward has gotten so out of control, it simply has."

    "We have been very pleased with East Ward. In our experience the teachers are proactive and very willing to work with parents to aid in the advancement of their children. In addition the support services are excellent"
