i believe the teachers go far and beyond teaching the children in school.my daughter is doing fantastic in school and that shows my her mid grade marks.there is a open line of communication with the teachers and they respond back to any comments you make if you feel something is not right.i would never say to anyone dont send your kids to norristown school because i feel they are doing a excellent job with the students.they ca improve on some hings but its only a matter of time and committment.

Eisenhower has come a long way. From the administration to the teachers all the way down to the students. I love the uniform policy. It is not only cheaper for me, but all the students look great and their behavior has benefitted from them. The administration is wonderful. You can call them at any time, they are walking around the neighborhood during dismissal and has made a positive climate that is visible when you walk in. My son loves the school and my daughter graduated last year and is always going back to visit the staff and administration....I believe that if you think the school is so bad you should stop by and visit....It will change your mind!

this school is horrible! the NASD brought in a new principal who is clueless as to how to educate young minds. she thinks that 'uniforms' = quality education. each year that my children have attended this school the administrative staff has gone from bad to worse. also the education would be ok if the other students weren't permitted to bully, disrespect, and torment the school environment. it's a shame because this is our only neighborhood school and with all the catholic schools closing this is our only choice.

I used to go to this school. The teachers can care less about the students. There is no dicipline here, and the other students are rude. I used to hate going to school everyday. I felt really unsafe and was not learning anything. The students really don't care for a good education, and will often make smart remarks to the teachers, who do nothing about this. Avoid this school! I now go to a catholic school with a much higher quality education and teachers who actually take the time for me and care.

I think that the teachers at EMS are doing a great job. My son has had a hard time this year and every teacher contacted me to alarm me of his grades and behavior. I am happy to know that someone cares about his future. I went to the school to have a conference and all of his teachers were there to reinforce learning to him. I appriciate all of there efforts and support as I know my son has a great chance of becoming what he can be. Thank you, Rhonda Andrews
