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.
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.
This is a wonderful school. My child has had many wonderful relationships with staff and students. Students are very kind to one another.
We think it's a 4 star school. Met the teachers and they seemed like they really care. Keep up the good work!
EMS has a very dynamic administrative staff and teachers that care about each child and the type of learning experience they have. Great School!!!
EMS is filled with caring teachers and administration who are trying to make everyday better for students. We are working on changes in our discipline process and have suceeded in creating a safe and fun learning environment.
This school is outstanding. My student really enjoys coming to school each day! The administration is very professional and caring.
The parent who wrote that the principal was unfair and called the teachers racists is completely wrong. The school has been great for My child. The principal and teachers care about all Kids. It is a safe school and they have zero tolerance for bullying.
my daughter went to ems and absolutely hated it the princable was very unfair and the teachers were racist.
This is a great school that has wonderful teachers who truly care about the students.
