Overall a very good school. However there is serious need to reevaluate usage of electronics for younger kids. There has been reported issues of young minds getting exposed to objectionable content while using school issued ipads in the school. Usage of ipads/electronics should be minimized and focus should ideally shift to more engaging activities than passive learning.
The families and teachers are great at this school. The administration seems to be struggling. Last year alone (after the 2016 year), thirteen quality teachers left the school and one left mid-year this year. I hope the leadership can pull it together so that no more talent is lost.
Overall the school is good. However the whole School District needs to put their head together and start thinking about providing healthy food options to kids. I believe the funds collected by the school can definitely help the school freshly cooked food.
After years of hype about Eanes, we were sorely disappointed. I gave it 3 stars because I truly felt it was very average. While the community there is sweet and very involved parents, the things they were doing and raising money for were not for us. Lots of great sugar loaded class parties, many which were bring your game boy to school and play video games, iPads for every student, fancy carnivals. But I would prefer more physical exercise (PE 1-2x per week only!) foreign language and better cafeteria food (disgusting). The specials are a joke, art is no different than what you may provide at home or pick up at micheals, the PE would get the kids playing something and then sit on her computer and surf the internet, and until 4th grade when you play the recorder my child watched a video for music class. I could go on, they can definitely produce the test scores, but that is more a reflection of the student population (less than 1% low income) than of anything particularly stellar about the teaching.
