His teacher, aide, and principal have all been great. We truly do love the school. But the fact they don’t provide services to special needs children who need the services brings my overall experience down. My son needs speech. And yet the special ed department declined him even though he is speaking 2 years behind. And can’t form relationships with his peers due to not speaking correctly, and then not understanding him.

There is no extra help for students in need. I feel brushed off by staff and my students teacher.

This school is wonderful! I have 3 children, whom have all had different teachers, and I was more than satisfied with the help and attention each one of them have received. I think that parents that complain really need to step back and re-think what they have said. My daughter does not have special needs, however she is in an inclusion class where special needs students are integrated. It is wonderful for her to meet all types of children and it is making her a better person!! Also the clubs that are offered here are wonderful for the kids and I also love the character awards that are given to the kids. It really makes them feel special!! I think the staff is doing a wonderful job!!!!

Union East Elementary is disappointing. My daughter is currently in Kindergarten here. The teachers do not have the available resources to properly teach these children. There is no testing system to see which students need extra help or those who may be a bit advanced. Therefore a number of students are suffering and not getting the education they need. The children in her class evidently, from teacher comments and my daughters account, have behavior issues. Guns, death and sex are some of the first things my daughter learned upon starting kindergarten. There is VERY LITTLE parental involvement in this school. The ones who are struggle to keep this school afloat with constant fundraisers. From day one Carrier Coach has been late or early with times varying within 30-40minute windows. The bus driver has changed no less than 10 times since the of the year and we're in March now. Calls to Carrier coach, the school and the district bussing manager have proven unsuccessful. There have been times my 5 year old daughter has had to direct the driver to our home. In short this school is a disappointment and planning and sacrifices should be made to AVOID this school at all costs.
