To the August 11th poster...so all kids who qualify for free meals, have behavioral issues?...appears as if you're equating socioeconomic status with the the way a child will behave...what an ignorant, biased way to judge children. As a matter of fact, some of the worst behavior that I have witnessed ...  Read more

Eakin use to be a neighborhood school but now half the children are on the free lunch program and dominate the teachers' time with behavioral problems.

We have two children in Eakin and we have been very impressed with the caring teachers and staff at Eakin. The walkable neighborhood in which the school resides, nearby Dragon Park, is as welcoming as the school is to parental involvement. My only complaint is that too much time is being spent teaching ...  Read more

Having been an Eakin parent for the last few years,our overall experience has been a positive one. But there are some negatives. A school can't stand and thrive alone on its reputation.

What do you base this on? Do you still feel this way? I have been impressed so far and would like to know if you are still at Eakin.

My son just "graduated" from Eakin after having attended it since kindergarten. We were very impressed with his progress and have to give Eakin a lot of the credit. The Encore program was wonderful and he will be going to Head Academic Magnet School as a result of his education there.

It was an amazing school until the new principal took over. I don't think she is comfortable with Eakin's parents level of involvement . She is not very objective when dealing with issues at school, either. Despite all of that, most of the teachers are amazing and well prepared, with a couple of exceptions.

It is amazing how much this school has to offer for being a public school. I feel very thankful that my child attends Eakin. The highly qualified staff are kind and caring.

Eakin is a very good school. Although I don't think that the new principal is the best match for a school like Eakin where the level of involvement of the parents is very high (she tried to implement a new policy at the beginning of the year to stop parents from walking their children to their classes ...  Read more

Eakin is located in a vibrant, downtown Nashville neighborhood. The parents are involved. The community is involved. The $10 mill. state-of-the-art facility was completed in 2006. Our first grader is doing quite well, learning reading and addition. The diversity at Eakin is a rarity in Nashville ...  Read more
