I would just like to say that I recently move from California . I have lived here before and had two children in the englewood district.And graduated. They have both been very successful in there lives, now being back in Colorado I thank the district,and feel that it has a good impact on our children's lives. I also wish to thank everyone involved.. Thank you

My child did well at this school. If we had any problems the teachers and principals were on it and taken care of ASAP. If I needed anything from principals, teachers and or office staff they were happy to help and did whatever they could to help my child succeed. The review below about the staff is very much incorrect!!!!

Awful school- the worst! Administration lies to parents to cover their own negligence. If you have any doubts about this school pull your kid out before it's too late. I expressed concern about the safety of my honor roll child 1 week and the next week she was EXPELLED without investigation into the incident. One star is too many for EMS. Might as well make it a reform school with all the criminal activity there.

The ever changing leadership in this school really shows how awful this school is. With limited classes, lack of teacher training and student and parent disrespect, this has to be the worst school I have ever had to deal with. Teachers are more concerned with themselves and less on education. Great students cannot thrive here and will be pushed to the back of the line so that faculty can deal with the plethora of "bad" students. With drugs, smoking, bullying and bad language to take care of, education is on the bottom of the list. This school has been a downward spiral of disappointments !!

i went to this school and did not like it .when your getting bullied they don't do anything about it.i feel some of the staff are racist..and the teachers are over dramatic when you get in trouble..if you get in trouble for a little thing and they make it huge.i brought in juice to school and got in-trouble they said were not allowed to have .it but i saw a girl bring juice. i even seen a student bring a monster. and she didn't get in trouble.I strongly advised parents to put their kids in a different school...from experience don't put your kid in ENGLEWOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL!

I am a very involved parent and very involved with the school and staff. . A school cannot run smoothly with only one strong leader. I applaud the Principal but the ball has been dropped more than once. Yes there are good teachers but the students only fear the Principal who isn't there a lot of the time. But the students and lack of follow through make for a very poor learning environment. Without the ability to go anywhere else in Englewood (ELA isn't very open to mid term transfers, they seem to cater to the incoming 6th graders and have dropped the ball many times), we are forced to go out of district and won't even consider Englewood High School. Ms Principal, we love you, but its time to go. Frankly I believe the lack of parental involvement with their own children is partly to blame, but thats the price thats paid when all the students are worth is the price tag the state pays for them.

I have been a teacher for 10 years and was very disappointed about what I saw my child's first day of school. Nothing but curse words and inappropriate dress. It is obvious that the standards here are low. If you want a school where integrity and respect is taught this is not the school. I'm sure they do a good job, but as an educator my standards for education are very high.

We have had a wonderful experience at Englewood Middle School. Teachers that take the time to work with their students. The Principal and her staff are strong unit and I applauded. We choose to come to this school and it was the best decision we made. The situation is what you make of it. As parents if you don't like it get involved find out how you can make a difference. As students you get what you give. Keep us the good work EMS!

Not impressed about this school its pour first year and it has been bad, cant belive some of what has happend. There are a few teachers that do care but the ones that dont out weigh the ones that do.

As a teacher in the school, I feel we work incredibly hard to ensure all students feel safe and welcome. Our administration does an admirable job communicating with teachers, students and the community our expectations and goals. I am proud to be a Skyhawk and know that most involved with the school feel the same way. Go EMS!

I was really pleased with the 1st year EMS actually combined Flood and Sinclair and renamed Englewood Middle School. I'm not happy with the school anymre. The school and the staff are not educated on minorities or racisim within the school. My children have been bullied because of their race and staff has continued to ignore. I rate this school as low as possible.

Posted December 31, 2008

As a student, I think that my school is doing a proficient job teaching their students. However, I do think that not letting the students sit in the lobby on cold days and making us all get crammed into the lunchroom is kind of mean. And I understand that we might take advantage of this and all end up in the lobby taking up space. But at least it will be a little easier on the custodians if we don't all have to stay in the lunchroom until school starts. And also, I think that there should be more security in the hallways during class so other students don't go running through the hall disrupting other classes in session. And I know I'm just a kid and you may not agree with me but I'm trying to speak out for all the students and I appreciate your consideration.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
