This school may be the worst in the district. The problems are numerous. The facilities are depressing- the windows are plastered over, the library floods, and there are classes meeting in the basement storage rooms. The principal is more interested in appearing to be well run than actually running ...  Read more

East Lansdowne Basics is in my opinion the best school in the District. I'm glad that my youngest daughter got in after being on the waiting list for three years. Her test scores show that she is learning. She has been blessed with excellent teahers. Parent involvement is higher than in any of the schools. ...  Read more
