Good for some, though fairly average. There is no sex ed program, and some teachers are bias towards native american students. Encouraging guidance counselor. More sport and grade oriented. Some fantastic teachers, some frankly unsatisfactory. Little to no violence. Better than a few middle schools, but that does not change the problems there. I am a student. 2/5.
I went to this school, and it's so amazing. The teachers are so into the teaching and it's a great experience. The lessons are great, and EVMS really pushes for their students to grow and do great things, and to be kind, and as we always say to "be respectful, be responsible, and be ready". And that's something i will always remember. The kid's here are always respectable, and we have one of the greatest, if not the best music and sports programs (&coaches) out of all the Helena and East Helena schools. It's really amazing, and we soon want to build a highschool that will also be just as great for kids and their learning as this middle school!
The staff at EVMS really cares and involves the students and parents. This is a relatively new school and was built for growth, sports involvement, science and math. The students in 6 - 8 grades get lots of attention from that caring staff.
