Because of the way the elementary schools in TCAPs are set up (economically by location), the kids that go to East are condemned to class warfare from the start. The upper class kids from the peninsula's elementary school tend to cause a stir in the confidence of kids from some of the lower-income areas. Other than this big factor, the school has a wonderful computer art/animations class. My child was enthused over this class. I've only ever had problems with the teachers of the 6th grade, but this was when my child was among the first of the 6th graders to be added to the general populace.
We moved to traverse city this year. My son is in seventh grade and loves the teachers, the band program and the broadcast class. The teachers and administrators have exceeded our expectations. We applaud their ability to make each student feel special. This is a wonderful school
My two daughters have gone to this school, and they've received a stellar education. The teachers and administration are all top-notch!
East Middle School welcomes all those that enter the doors. The friendly atmoshpere makes East a wonderful place to learn.
It is such an innovative school with the best staff, students, and administration.
East Middle School rocks because the staff and students genuinely care about one another and are always supportive. Our #1 goal is connecting with students so all are learning and achieve success.
Great kids; great staff; great administration. This is the best place to teach!
East Middle School is a family first. Making kids understand that someone cares about them must happen before learning takes place. At East the staff cares for and about 'their' kids.
Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology,,,the home of the Cardinals! POB has been an outstanding environment for not only my son, but other students, parents, and faculty. POB has shown an increase in attendance as well as academic achievement. 'POB is academically tenacious'!!!
EMS teaches fine students the tools they will need to be productive adults.
Traverse City East Middle School has a staff who is second to none. Everyone there put the students first. They walk the talk.
The people!! Everyone from the staff to the students make it a warm, caring, yet vibrant place. Top notch educators go above and beyond in preparing students for High School.
I come here and this school is o.k., the library is huge and lots of the kids are nice, there a lot of plays, and a talent shows, the classes teach a lot and the lunches are good, and i love the 'N.A.P.' area, you can play D.D.R., and watch T.V. and there are drinks and snacks,also the band selections are great!!!!!!!!!!!! I play the cello. The gym is big and nice, but we don't use it much, it's easy and fun to earn credits, all together i give this scool an A+++++++!!!!!!!!!!
Overall East jr. High is a decent school. Most of the teachers were very good. I have had 2 of my children here. The principle Glenn Solowiej is outstanding. He is fair and quick to address any issues a parent or student is concerned about.
