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.
