I love East Paulding Middle. The staff is very helpful when I have questions. The teachers really want all students to succeed. They go up and beyond to get them where they need to be. The new Principal is awesome and very approachable. They also have respectable students. i really like the fact it's a multiracial school.

As a Grandmother, my personal observations allow me to give a "Big Shout Out " to the Principal and Staff at EPMS....Teachers outside the front doors of the school greeting students in the morning..( The Principle too )! During CRCT week ; lots of teachers giving high-fives to encourage student morale . Even had the Principle help with my car battery on a rainy afternoon in car line! The Special Education Teacher that showed a friendly and caring attitude to her student and his mother in car line... Did not go unnoticed ! You are awesome ! So proud these people are helping to form my Grandaughters life skills by example! And, as they advertise on T.V...."I approve this message."

East Paulding always keeps the parents updated about everything going on at school. The staff is always very friendly. I believe the best part of East Paulding is the parent volunteers at the school. Without them, East Paulding would not be the great school that it is.

We moved out her from Cobb County just so my kids could go to East Paulding. That is a decision I will always stand by. I feel that they keep us informed on everything. The teachers keep me updated on my child via email. I always feel that if I need to contact the school about any concerns I am more that welcome to do so. I would not have my children any where else. GO RAIDERS!!!!

My son is in 8th grade at EPMS. I have always been impressed with the school and the quality of teachers but this year with the new principal and the direction the school is going is without a doubt the best yet. We have very few of the problems that I hear about at other middle schools in the area. I wish Mr. Ingram had come to EPMS earlier since we will be moving on to high school after this year.

My son is in his second year at EPMS and I feel good about my sons education here. Yes the school is old, but his teachers have been great. The only things I would change about the school (besides updating the schools interior) is getting parents involved more so the school can grow. For all the parents out there get involved somehow, if it's not within the school it can be as simple as bringing your newspapers to their recycle bin thats at the entrance of the school or cutting out the 'Box Tops' from your grocery items and having you student bring them in, so the school can get education items with them. Improvement starts from us too, if the teachers have our support then they can be better teacher. Think about it!

This school is really not good. There has been lots of fights lately. I am in 8th grade and the classes are crowded with about 26 students. The school is really old and the teachers dont really seem to care about my education.

I am not impressed with this school..This area is growing fast and I dont feel that the teachers that have been in this community are adjusting well. I feel theres alot of favortism aka 'Good Ole' Boy Network' This applies with the football team especially! This school has alot to learn as it becomes more diverse..

East Paulding Middle school is not a great school. Its Dirty and old. The teachers arent good and they dont really help you. It lacks Discipline.I would not recommend this school. These are the reasons why i might be moving schools.

My child moved to East Paulding this year from another Ga county,and I'm amazed at the difference in standards.This school seems to be lagging behind in many areas.By looking at this websites information,I assumed it to be a good school academically,but this is not the case. How they manage to get good results in the crct tests amazes me.As a result ,my child is bored and is rapidly losing interest in school.For a child who always had a keen interest in school, this is sad.They just don't seem to encourage the kids to excel.The teachers I've met are very nice and hard working, but this doesn't seem to be enough.My kid will move to East Paulding high next year, and I can only hope it is better,that they strive to help the kids be all they can be.

I am a 7th grader in EPMS, and I think that this school is really great except that it is sometimes boring, and the food isnt all that good, but overall, the teachers are wonderful, and I like this school.

My son is leaving EPMS for High School, after two years at this school. We had good results, academically, with our son. Parent-teacher relationships are critical to the education process. Teaching staff here does their best within their budget and educational backgrounds. Not much in music and art available.

We have one child here and except for two teachers we were happy. Both teachers were absent the majority of the school year. We understand they both had illnesses in their family but the students suffered. Also in reaponse to the same parents always helping, I have volunteered for the last 2 years and have never been called. I have even gone to the school and told if needed they would call me. I (and many others) get the impression that a certain group of parents want to do it all, and want everyone to think no one else helps.

I have one child at EPMS and one going into EPHS. I think EPMS is a great school. We definitely need more parent involvement. I think the teachers are the best that I have seen in the county besides McGarity. Keep up the good work teachers and staff.

Overall a very possitive experience with this school. We will have another child attending EPMS next year and one moving on to EPHS. We have been very impressed with the way the school reaches out to parents, however only about 10% of the parents ever participate and it's always the same ones.
