All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

This school is OK. Recently, some teachers were laid off due to funding cuts. The school has good sport and activity programs.

I am a student at East Pennsboro Middle School. This year I will be in 8th grade. Upon reading some of the other reviews, I disagree. The school takes matters on safety very seriously and find it very important. The teachers can be tough but it doesn't get any easier when you are in the real world. The teachers are very helpful and understanding. We are awesome at sports, have great school spirit, and have very smart kid in the school. Yes they may have some issues but really, no school is perfect. It is a nice size and amount of kids in a class and they have many clubs and after school activities. I think they would be a good place for you kid or kids to go to school. Have a great day! I hope you take my advice and realize that East Penn works hard. Bell L. =)

I am very disappointed with this school. The teachers were not helpful at all with my child who was struggling academically. I did not feel that we, as parents, were taken seriously when we approached the school with concerns.

Overall I am pleased with the new curriculum. However, the administration is lacking on the part of the principal. Throughout the district I have found the counselors and some staff to be very condescending and often times they take parental matters and decisions into their own hands. I find this to be unacceptable and not something I am willing to tolerate. Otherwise, my daughter is happy at the middle school.

Very nice school in a super school district. Good blend of students with a semi-rural flavor. Excellent academics, very good sports, adequate facility, poor leadership at the principal level.

My son currently attends EPMS. I am horrified at the difference from elem to Middle. The teachers and overall education were/are acceptable at the MS. The discipline however, is definitely lacking and the students know it. There is no control and the principal and assistant principal definitely bring the school down!

I feel our school is a pretty good school. We have a great Spainsh class in 7th and 8th grade. All of the teachers are very nice and willing to help. The counslers are a little rude. We have a great assistant principle. I think it is a pretty well rounded school. We have differnt races and differnt kids of familys.

My son has been moderately happy there. I've had a few issues- Some of the counselours are condescending and border on rude. Most of the teachers are pleasant and helpful. I hate the grading system- my kid has to earn a 93 for an A, an 85 for a B, etc and he has to compete nationally for scholarships and college admissions because of this ridiculous grading system. It proves nothing and potentially hurts my child. Not a whole lot of communication between school and parents...
