I'm about to get my child out this school. They stereotype you because of your color and they try to flunk you without help. It's ridiculously sad. My son was doing good until he came here.

Okay So I have been attending this school for about 3 weeks and so far there is a lack of education. The Staff and Teachers Worry About What I Wear to School, Last thing I remembered this was a public school not a military school. Some Teacher Don't Care about education they only care about the money. For Example I was in Class And I asked my teacher for some help, and her response was ask a student, I thought you were the teacher?, One Day I never understood the homework but when I ask for help they walk away. Parents Please Don't Send your child unless they have to follow the fashion book. Really, I got in trouble for wearing a little ripped pants and leggings and tried to suspend me. Unless u care about your child life in school don't send them here because this is not the right one. The only phone calls you get is for clothes and behavior nothing about school. Never Ever register here because this is why I am leaving because all they want is MONEY! why even send your child here if they have to call the teacher by ma'am like am I a slave still and why are the teachers doctors!! I rather call you by miss or Mr. not ma'am or sir. Im sorry but I think this is just a slave attitude

Eagle's Landing Middle School is a terrible school! The lunch trays are reusable and they have curse words written on them. The lunch is absolutly teribble and they don't even give you silverware. The school also looks run down, especially the desks. For example, the desks in my science class were completly carved in. It was so bad, I could not even write n the desk withut sticking a whole through my paper. The kids at this school are terribly behaved. The students constanly curse at the teachers. If you have the option, please do not send our child to this school!

I love how the Principal welcomes and makes time for the parents. Teachers care about the students and are always available. My child is a handful, but staff members will work with you to help support your child's education.

I have gone to ELMS for 3 years and for 6th and 7th grade, the teachers and administrators were "lacking" somewhat, but then this year (2011-2012) Dr. Crump has taken over, and made many changes for the better. I wish she would have came earlier, but she has really made an impact on the school. She stays postive and encourages all students to to their best. We now have many positive behavior incentives tto encourage students to maintain good behavior in the classroom. Eagles Landing Middle was once a mess, but now its changing for the better.

This school is by far the un organized school ever and they like to get rid of the problams instead of solving them, I believe the teachers are unprofessional and give up on the kids that goo there, I have made the worse choice by letting my child go to this school.......

The worst school I have ever dealt with. Although the dog and pony appears good and the emphases on teacher parent communication message is there, it has a long way to go. Leadership from the top is lacking and it reflects all the way down. Not too sure how they have the ratings....but someone should investagate this further.

Just so you know, a school isn't voted a school of excellent. It earns that title from consecutive years of making ayp. Also, the teacher may tell your child to ask a friend because your kid doesn't pay attention in class and the teacher's attempt to have you correct the problem hasn't been working. The teache may have written your kid off as a failure (just as life might as he gets older). Sounds like you may have to motivate your child before he becomes your perm, life-long problem.


Posted September 22, 2010

Both of my children have attended ELMS and my youngest is still there. This school has some of the laziest teachers in the State of Ga. These kids are given so much homework because of the CRCT that they are lucky to have it finished by 9 pm. If they don't understand something, the teacher will tell them to ask a friend. The last time I checked that is what the teacher is paid to do, help the student, not send them to another student. If your child is ever absent, you need copies of the excuses because you will have to provide them at least 5 to 10 more times during the year being that the front office can't seem to manage to keep up with them. And to those of you who left posts, the last time ELMS won school of excellence was in 1999.

Very Excellent school!! This school has no behavior issues, mainly dress code vialations. All four of my older children went here and my two youngest attend there for 6th and 7th and we still love it!! ELMS has made AYP for 6 consecutive yaers, very good test grades! This is a wonderful choice in middle schools!

I'm proud to say my choild goes to ELMS. He has improved his grades tremendously and is much more responsible since he has been going there. I also like the ability to contact his teachers via phone or email at any time as I am a very involved parent. They have a lot more clubs and involvement for him to participate in. I've enjoyed it tremendously and would not put him in any other school in the area.

I will not bash all the teachers here however when it came to getting help for my child they were less then helpful. There are some really good teachers but the majority really don't have the time of day for you. The principal does not even respond concerns I had.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 7, 2006

They also call you when their is a problem but cannot call you when your child is failing and the teachers will not shedule for meetings when your child needs special attention. They do not work with the parents when the student needs it. The school is not helping the parents to become envolve with their education.

Other than that this school truly is a school of excellence.
