Eastgate Elementary School: Helping All Students Succeed. Eastgate is an elementary school in the process of turning itself around. Eastgate has substantially increased test scores during the past year. The school has hired two teachers through President Clinton's class size reduction initiative, and four of the school's teachers are participating in the Columbus Public Schools' innovative Peer Assistance Review program, which offers mentors for new teachers and helps struggling teachers improve or leave the profession. The President will take part in a roundtable discussion of school reform. The Columbus Public Schools are using proven strategies of reducing class size, expanding after-school and summer school, and raising standards to boost student achievement in their lowest-performing schools. Eastgate Elementary has approximately 200 students, all of whom wear school uniforms.
