Welcome to Eastgate Elementary, Home of the Eastgate Eagles!
Eastgate serves students from kindergarten through the fifth grade with an academically rigorous program. Our talented teaching staff is committed to providing the support and individualized attention needed to ensure that all of our students achieve at high levels and are well prepared for middle school. Although Eastgate’s students perform excellently on State and District standardized tests, our staff continually strives to make improvements and increase our students’ success. Many members of the staff are National Board Certified and/or are working on advanced graduate studies.
Eastgate was completely rebuilt and opened the new facility during the 2009 – 2010 school year. Our classrooms include new technologies such as SmartBoards and classroom computer labs to enhance instruction and student learning. The entire school community is thrilled with the new school building and is pleased that treasured elements from the original school were restored in the new facility, including a beautiful tile mural that students created in the 1950’s.
Eastgate has a thriving school community and an active PTA that supports the school’s students and staff, and provides for many enriching programs at the school. All parents are welcome and encouraged to become involved partners with the school. We recognize that parent involvement is an indicator of high-performing schools and successful students.
The new Eastgate school building is utilized by the community for many after school and evening events, and has become a real asset to the Eastgate area. Several organizations offer extended learning opportunities for students in after-school programs, especially on Wednesday afternoons, as students are released two hours earlier on Wednesdays. The Bellevue School District also has an Early Childhood Center located on Eastgate’s campus, that provides before/after school child care, and multiple preschool programs. Many of Eastgate’s students attend an after school program offered by The Bellevue Boys and Girls’s Club that is located nearby at Bellevue’s South Community Center.
If you have any questions about Eastgate Elementary, please contact the school’s main office.
