On behalf of the staff at Eastwood School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year.  We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  Our goal is for every child and family to feel welcomed, connected, and a valued member of the Eastwood learning community.

 

Our Mission:  Inspire, Encourage, Succeed

 

We strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be college-ready by building an instructional program based on Eastwood values of the 7 C's:

Cooperation

Collaboration

Critical Thinking

Creativity

          Character

 

At Eastwood, our great teachers collaborate to plan engaging and meaningful learning activities.  Teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels so that personalized goals for growth can be determined and implemented.  The hallmarks of our instructional program follow:

 

Academic Excellence-Provide rigorous, relevant, effective, and engaging instruction, curriculum, and assessment for all students
