My daughters are 7th graders at East Cary Middle School and we could not be more pleased with the Principal, teachers and staff at the school. When choosing this school (which is not our base school, but our calendar option), we were very selective. We were looking for a school with a strong and supportive administration, dedicated staff, strong academics, and lots of elective and club choices. We found all this and more at East Cary. My daughters enjoy going to school, have teachers that help them stay focused and they have made lots of friends. I attribute that to the "no nonsense" environment that the Principal has established.

My child is a 7th grader at ECMS. We looked at several magnet schools when he was entering middle school and decided to go with East Cary instead and are happy we did. The principal is outstanding and there's a lot of school pride. Transition to middle school was very easy. My son has had several really amazing teachers. I was concerned about AG services going in, but between single subject acceleration and in-class differentiation we've been happy on the whole with AG. I'm not hearing about any bullying and my son is happy to go to school except that it starts so early. We've had a couple of so-so classes (Spanish most notably) but I know there's no perfect school. We're glad we chose East Cary and our younger child will go here too.

Switched to this school from dillard for 7th grade. I loved it for all the time I went! Only priblem: Some students are a little judgemental Otherwise, amazing school and best in the area!


Posted August 30, 2013

My daughter started 6th grade here this year, and the transition to middle school has been very smooth. She is excited to be at a STEM school, and has already seen the benefit of this. Bullying and meaness can be a problem among this age group, but there is no sign of bullying or discipline problems at this school. Also, we love the year-round schedule.

East Cary Middle School is the best school in the district. The principal has transformed ECMS into a school for caring and compassionate leaders. There was a group of children on the bus who were bullying my child. We informed the principal about this, and he immediately kicked the children off campus. My child's teachers are very kind and keep on sending e-mails every every Friday telling what is going on in the school. The kids are also very respectful and obedient. This school's S.T.E.M. program has helped the students significantly in their careers. S.T.E.M has bought many initatives to the school: Science Olyampiad, Career Fair, Science Fair, S.T.E.M electives, and allowed students to get their own Samsung Galaxy S2 tablets. I would like you parents to know that overall ECMS is a very High quality school and it is greatly worth the act of sending your child to this wonderful East Cary. Go ECMS IMPS!

l love being a student at ECMS! Here there isn't a lot of bullying (as far as know) and a wide variety of skill level classes. For example, some 7th graders are in 8th grade classes, along with some extra help classes. Also, there are STEM electives once in awhile that students can have fun, and learn about the things they want to advance in when they are older. By that, mean there are STEM electives that may align to your future job. You get to pick what STEM you wish to have, but even though you might not get that STEM, our students counselors will try there hardest to get it for you. Lunch is great, they provide a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, while also providing "Red Baron" pizza Monday through Thursday for an extra 50 cents then your average entr e. would recommend trying to get your child into track 4. t has the best teachers, and the best track-out times. During Christmas, our break merges with Christmas break- thus, we get a five and a half week long break. That's all have to say! My name is Ryan, I'm an 8th grader on Track 4, here at ECMS. P.S. We have a new principle, so please disregard any bad ratings revolving around her. -Written by a Student

We have been at ECMS for one year and it has been a great year ! We are so grateful that we get to be in a STEM school that has so many things going for them. The whole 6th grade has new tablets that they get to take home and use daily in their classroom. How awesome is that!! The teachers there are unlike any I have seen anywhere else! From a small middle school that had room to grow to an amazing middle school that students from all over Cary and trying to get into..... I am so THANKFUL to be a parent of a student at East Cary Middle !!

for the first year or so my daughter was fine, then she hit the 8th grade (2002-2003) and had some minor problems with bullying. the principal allowed known bullies to remain on campus and di nothing about it. they did nothing about it, in spite numerous trips to the school and phone calls. hopefully they have gotton their act together since then.

This is our first year at East Cary and we thnk it's a top notch school. The new principal is very enthusiatic, the band director is wonderful (really wonderful) and my daughter's 6th grade teachers are very organized, communicate well with parents and are on top of the new curriculum. It has a "small school" community feel where all of the teachers and staff know the kids by name. There are few discipline problems and my daughter has made some fantastic new friends in the few months she has been there. SHe enjoys school and looks forward to going! The arts electives are definitely not it's strongest point, but it is a STEM school and their focus is more on STEM electives rather than arts. This school continues to get better every day and has not just met, but exceeded my expectations. !

My daughter transferred in from Wake Leadership Academy, and East Cary has been a wonderful experience for her. In a matter of weeks, she learned to play clarinet thanks to a wonderful band director, has a story every day about something interesting she learned, and is constantly working on school projects that she is excited about. Her teachers seem very enthusiastic and involved, and the children seem very polite and well-behaved- a noticeable change from the last school. The office staff and principal seem to know all the kids, and I couldn't be more thrilled that her transition was so easy. She is excited to go to school every day, feels appreciated for her hard work, is learning a lot, and has a group of sweet friends. What more could I ask for?

My child loves ECMS and so do I! I transferred her to ECMS ( from a traditional school in Cary) and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Whereas some may see small class sizes as a shortcoming, I see it as an advantage and an ideal learning environment. My daughter not only has teachers who challenge her academically, but they also give her personal attention. I find that the electives offered are of high quality and are enhanced by the clubs and activities offered at the school. The instructional technology is an added bonus with iPads, etc. available to the students. We are very excited about the new STEM electives being offered, which clearly reflect the school's focus on science, technology, engineering and math. I think the school's new administration is leading the school in the right direction, and has what it takes to help our children succeed. ECMS has definitely exceeded my expectations!!!

East Cary has miles to go before becoming a good school even with its new STEM classification. Its capacity is still underutilized & ranked the 4th worst for seats filled in Wake County last year. While that does cater to small class sizes compared to other popular middle schools, like Davis Dr, it means there are also fewer teachers -- which means fewer electives. The arts opportunities are VERY limited. The culture of the school is a "drop & go" feel with very little sense of community.

WWent here for 6th grade and it was amazing!!! Now I'm in the 8th grade and now attending Davis drive middle. East Cary was amazing so easy to make friends and I wish I could go back :( btw Davis drive is awful...

Our experience at East Cary has been an extremely positive one. The teachers and staff are caring and supportive of both students and parents. East Cary was a choice for our family and while the distance we have to travel to and from school is farther than we would like, it has been a worthwhile sacrifice.

East Cary Year Round Middle School is a really nice school. My child has had a positive middle school experience and has had supportive and challenging teachers each year. Parents should know that East Cary's Middle School community continues to grow since it's was re-established as a middle school following it use as a 9th grade center and has a supportive PTA. Just this week, it was announced that a new Pricipal has been named to lead East Cary, and I am excited to learn that it is a former East Cary Assistant Principal, that made a very positive contribution during my child's 6th grade year. As for student life, my child has enjoyed the open campus, media center, daily PE classes, sports, and after school clubs for the last three years. I know there is some criticism of the lack of elective courses at East Cary compared to other traditional & magnet middle schools in the area; however, there is a large enough selection to fill the one elective period each semester. Lastly, as the parent of an AG student I would have liked to have seen more AG teacher directed activities; however, I think this is more a factor of WCPSS policy & funding.

This is a terrible school. I am bullied constantly, the curriculum is not nearly hard enough, and the AG service is spotty at best.


Posted December 5, 2011

East Cary is a great school! The teachers go above and beyond to help the kids learn. The principal is FAIR and treats all students equally. I have a lot of respect for her and her leadership. There are plenty of school events and parents are very supportive.

Administration doesn't communicate with the parents. The Principal is not a good leader. Teachers are hit or miss.
