Great elementary school with fantastic teachers, staff and a wonderful parent community. The "learning cottages" look like Swiss chalets and are very nice! They organized several busses in the morning and afternoon between them and the "old" school location.The Christmas tree sale is also very convenient. They have good pine trees (fraser fir and another kind), wreaths and a few accessories at good prices.
My daughter goes to eaton and she loves this school! Great before and after care program for working parents, strong community feeling, and supportive staff and teachers. We love John Eaton.
My daughter is heartbroken that she won't be in Ms. Thompson's class after kindergarten promotion tomorrow. She cried and said emphatically, "Ms. Thompson is SUCH A GOOD TEACHER!" I agree. I had reservations about taking her out of the exclusive private school she attended previously, but I have no regrets. Great teachers, active parents, well run and reasonably priced before/aftercare. Regular field trips. Nice, diverse group of kids make up the student body.
John Eaton is a world heritage school. This means they have a grant to incorporate international culture into their curriculum. They are building a globally minded student body early on, by intergrtaing world cultures into the learning experience. With Americans being in general terms being so insular, this global mindset is essential for allowing our children to grow into cultural sensitive, and competitive in global economy we live in. John Eaton also boasts a diverse economic and ethnic population with dozens of languages spoken. Additionally Mandarin is offered to all the students starting in pre-K. Teachers and staff are caring and the principal Mr. Mann is very engaged and responsive. Additionally, John Eaton has very active parent involment that is constantly putting on events and creating a community. I feel so lucky that my son Gabriel is able to go to such an amazing public school and would recommend it to everyone.
