This school and it's academic staff needs a whole lot of work. The teachers do not or not allowed to communicate with the parents. I have had an extremely difficult time getting any of the teachers to contact me over the last couple of years. If another option was available for educating my children, I would consider it. As a working parent, home schooling is just not an option. The school talks a good game in regards to taking a stand against bullying..However, when the issue of bullying is brought up it is not unusual for the student to hear " they wouldn't pick on you if you didn't give them a reason too". If your child is sports minded, then by all means, they will not have any problems at this school. On the other hand if your child or children are the least bit "creative" then they are ignored by staff and bullied by other students and some staff.

Enka Middle School is a terrible choice for education. most of the teachers at this school could care less if you pass or fail. The bathrooms are disgusting. There is no soap in the soap dispensers. The toilet stalls have no doors, and the school its self is very unorganized.

I love Enka Middle! This school really rewards good work! The teachers are great and very understanding. They have a lot of patience.I paticipated in the drama club last year, awesome! When i went to try out for honors chorus, and these girls said that their school didn't even have a drama club. Miss Garner is a great band teacher. I don't know how she does it but i give her a two thumbs up! I love this school and all the fun acivities they have. Go Jets!

Ok first of all I want to say how much this school has helped me, I'm in the 8th and and this is one of the best schools! This school is wonderful and I love it very much! I would like to say thanks to all my teachers for teaching me all I have learned! I will always keep it in my mind! I can't wait till next week because I will be going on the 8th grade field trip to Atlanta, GA. I want to thank all the teachers and staff that made this trip happen! I'm very sad that I will be leaving this great school this year but I will be going to the high school next year and I can't wait! I want to send I very big thanks to my L.A. teacher Mrs.Trantham she is a wonderful teacher! I will miss her next year very much!

I too had a child struggling in Math last year and Tammy Mason not only the extra help to my child, but encouraged his determination to try harder. She is a wonderful asset to Enka Middle School and shouls be recognized for her outstanding efforts to go the extra mile for these kids.A truly grateful parent.

I was very concerned about my child attending Junior High and the changes it would mean to him and his personality. He at first had a rough time but with the help of his teachers he settled in wonderfully. Tammy Mason has been a God send with my child he lets me know when he needs attention or when he needs to be calmed down. He has become active in sports and academics. My experience with this school has been nothing but wonderful. Thay have a fully dedicted and supportive staff there to help the children and the parents. Two thumbs up!
