We are an energetic group working extremely hard to make sure every student reaches his or her full potential. East Elementary serves preschool through fourth grade students. The school has consistently been ranked Excellent by the Ohio Department of Education. East will meet the developmental, multicultural, social, intellectual, and emotional needs of each student through the use of technology and various instructional techniques. Through these methods and combinations with standardized and non-standardized test results, students will learn how to think independently and become lifelong learners as they are given challenges, opportunities, and positive reinforcement. East will continue its strong history of parental and community involvement.
