At Etowah Middle School, we treat every child like they are our own. My son will definitely attend EMS.

This is a horriable school. i have had a terriable time with staff racism and administrators being rude and unwilling to answer my concerns. I feel for any student that has to deal with this school as also the parents.

As a parent who has already had one child come through this school, I am very impressed with the administration and teachers. The principal is very available, as is the counselor. I would highly recommend this school, and my 7th grader absolutely loves it.

We are new this year to Etowah Middle, but we are impressed already. The teachers seemed very caring at New Student Orientation. I love all of the activities they have to offer my children.
