East Goshen Elementary School Reviews

I had two children attend EGE school and was very disappointed with the Principal and many of the teachers. One of my children was tested for the gifted program and we found that they had a high IQ verbal score - yet did not score proficient in the PSSAs - they were reading and writing at an incredible pace in 1st grade, yet somehow learned nothing between 1st and 5th grade. And when my second child was going through the school - I was concerned about the fact that my other child had learned so little - I was told that my other child probably had a bad day when they took the PSSAs. Also - when bullying issues arose - some of which were so bad that children received police records - parents were told that their children needed to get a thicker skin. Not at all happy with the school - shame.

I had a couple of teachers who were genuinely concerned with my needs. I learned years after I left EGE that teachers typically brush off the signs that a student might have some learning disability, and push the kid forward, leaving it as the next teacher's problem. I was pushed along by three teachers who recognized I had troubles with schoolwork but didn't do anything, until one teacher notified my parents. My experience with the science program at EGE was amazing. There was a separate teacher for science, and I was always excited to go to science class and do hands-on activities. To this day, I still know the rules for 'Oh, Deer!'-- a game that my teacher made to show that all animals have certain needs that their environment must provide in order to thrive, and what can happen when humans interfere with this.
I nearly turned an ankle from when I fell into one of the many holes in the soccer field that are never filled in. My dad used to volunteer to run the girl's soccer team, and he would show up with a bucket of dirt sometimes to fill in a few of the holes so kids wouldn't trip and fall. While it is the only elementary school in the district with a ropes course, it is only open to 5th graders for one day. The floor in the gym is shoddy, and I sometimes would find ants in the gym.
