I switched my oldest son to homeschooling to escape this terrible school system. My middle child just turned 3 a couple weeks ago and I'm already being terrorized by some horrible rude women scheduling non-mandatory child outreach assessments she's harassed me and even caused such a stink to his preschool over it he was kicked out of school! Every school in this district is manned by the most petty, immature, catty drama queen. Its almost like being that type of mentally disturbed bully is a pre-requisite of any administrative position in the whole school system. The senior high has one of the worst I've ever had the displeasure of having to speak with. Until dealing with this child outreach maniac Robin corsee? Not sure the last name but god what a monster.
We had a great experience at EWG Junior High School. We were not local to the area when our child started at the elementary school, and by the time he was in junior high he knew everyone in the school and had a great time with his projects and classes. The teachers were good with communication and parental involvement was encouraged regularly. I feel our child grew tremendously during his years at this school, both academically and socially. I would highly recommend EWGJHS!
The EWG Junion High is a terrific school! The teachers are professional, caring, and always have the student's best interests in mind. My child is thriving there and loves going to school there every day. Keep up the good work, EWG Junior High!
I would just like to clear the air because many of these reviews are old and need updating. Many of the teachers are very commited to the students. Especially Mrs. Livsey, she is always staying after or making arrangements to help students, she is very understanding to accomidating to students who have family issues, learning problems, or have come from differant backgrounds than other students, but is also helpful to normal students. She cares so much about her students. There are a few teachers who are not 100% fair. But the principal, Mr.Thomson is amazing and always makes sure things and if the students are having problems with the teahcers he is always there to help. He is deciated, caring, and is more than just a principal to students. He is very easy for them to relate to and he understands students very well.
The school is 'Ok'. I am not impressed, and think the rating academically is inflated due to lack of affordable housing in the area. There is a lot of favoritism given to inept teachers who will remain in the system because they 'know someone'. There is also a lack of understanding toward children that don't come from the standard suburb, part time working mom, dad supporting the family kind of environment. There is very little understanding of anyone or anything that is different than the white picket fence family life.
