Mr. H is an excellent teacher and dedicated. I will never forget all the academic and emotional help he gave to my son.

East Avenue Elementary has given my children so many more opportunities than the other elementary schools in our area due to its programs like art, science and music along with it having a very strong PTA with high parent participation. Since my kids came from another school in the district 4 years ago, East Avenue has been a breath of fresh air and they are thriving. I am especially impressed with the front office staff and principal who always are very friendly, helpful and hands on with the students.
