East Coweta Middle School4

Being nervous with a new 6th grader going into middle school... I was concerned about how much communication there would be with the teachers. My son was very lucky to have a great HR and SS teacher (Mr B) and the others on his team. Math teachers have been extremely helpful as this is the subject he struggles with. My son is also loving his band class and learning a lot from Mr Owens. Over all, very happy with the school... but most of all the teachers he has. This is what really makes the school. - Concerned and Involved Parent
I currently go to this school and the teachers aren't very helpful sometimes, for example, if i have a question, they, most of the time, don't have an answer. Also, they will not let you carry a bookbag. Which in my book, that's pretty crappy when you have to carry lots of HEAVY books. They also award the people who come to school everyday more often than they do to the people thay made all A's. I think they deserve at least something besides a 'good job!' over the intercome. But other than that , it's a great school. :)
I really don't care for this school at all. I left a voicemail for the assistant principal one day last year and the call wasn't returned. Another call was also ignored. My child didn't have a very good 6th grade year, though the new band director was great, many of her other teachers were not. 7th Grade is going better but we are hoping to move to another district soon.
I'm a parent of a child attending ECMS. I have no complaints with the teachers. But I do have a problem with the lack of respect that teachers are shown, not just by the kids, but some parents. If teachers cannot ENFORCE discipline in the school and have it 'stick', the battle is lost before it's even begun.
it stinks we cant talk in the hallway if we do we get are lockers took away and some kids half back problems and i know one kid who had a broken back at the beging of the schhol but i understand its are problem if we get in trouble but its not fair, good, or safe
I attended ECMS about two years ago and I believe that it is an awesome school. I attend a college prep boarding school currently and if it weren't for EC I would be struggling so much. I am already almost finish with my high school career early, and I plan to graduate honors.
This school has always had a majority of staff that really care for students. The Population determines the level of performance in testing. This is a rural--slowly changing to suburban community. There is low parental involvement in this school. There is a higher population of low-income families attending this school which can affect attitude on achievements as a student. There are great teachers working with students on band, chorus, art, and technology. In addition, the football team has always ranked high in its performance each year. Unfortunately, Sports is more important to the county in general, so residents of Coweta County are waiting for this attitude to change as the county grows.
