East Farms has a successful Reading Recovery program and offers a specialized reading tutoring program for students in grades 2-4. An early-intervention program in mathematics ensures that all first graders off on the right start. Students reap the benefits of such programs as authors in residence and a hands-on science curriculum that marries experimentation and exploration to subject matter. Academic offerings are enriched by arts programs, including general music and strings, visual arts, and physical education classes-attended regularly by all students. Teachers continuously study curriculum and instruction and regularly participate in professional development.
Parent-teacher collaboration is at the heart of East Farms. Indeed, we nurture community among students, parents, and staff through a positive, disciplined learning as well as opportunities for socializing at numerous community events. The children benefit from an active and involved parent-teacher organization. Volunteers provide time and resources to support an exemplary school library, cultural arts programs, technology and an active Publishing Center. A parent-teacher School Development Council helps plan school improvements and set school goals. Informally, parents and teachers work together to meet individual students' academic, social and emotional needs. Working parents are supported with a comprehensive school-age care program .
