While many teachers at the school are wonderful and supportive, there are some that seem to be in the system too long and are more focused with themselves than with the best interests of the children. We are considering moving our child out of this school due to issues with the teacher and administrative staff. It is so unfortunate, given the wonderful and supportive staff at Stony Brook Elementary (Brewster's other elementary school). We are hopeful that the town will one day fulfill its plan to close the Eddy School and move students to Stony Brook.
