For a big, urban middle school, it's ok. There are lots of programs and sports and pockets of academic excellence. But if you get a mediocre teacher, or one who doesn't like your kid, you have to do a lot of your own teaching.

I have been incredibly happy with Eckstein. I have two students currently attending and I think things changed tremendously with the new principal who has been here for three years. My kids don't play in the music program but there are lots of other ways they get involved and I am very happy with teacher communication and communication from the principal. The focus on the whole child was evident from the Open House and has been clear with the response from our kids' counselors who are fantastic. It is true that the building could be better, but the staff is excellent and I appreciate the focus on social justice in many of the classrooms.

My daughter transferred to Eckstein when we moved to Seattle, and I regret the decision deeply She is a kind person, gets' straight As, and has lots of good friends. Yet because she was new apparently, kids started rumors about her that were completely untrue. The clique of kids that all went to elementary together, in particular, were quite vicious toward her, and my daughter was distraught for the entire first semester. The other big change for her was suddenly being in a context where the teachers were distant and not very accessible. Some dismissed her questions outright, others were not available after school or during lunch for my daughter to come in for clarification on assignments and such. At her old school, she counted some teachers as friends, and when we visit her old school the teachers hug her and call her by name. Eckstein teachers seem to be on the opposite end of the spectrum.Until this year my daughter loved going to school; now she dreads it, and can't wait for the school year to end. All to say: If you have a choice, I would not choose Eckstein for your child.
