Pulling my child from this school and enrolling in homeschooling next year. Lots of behavior issues and the teachers do nothing about it. Bullying and fights seem to be a daily issue. My child says the teacher is constantly yelling and tells the children she is stressed and can't handle them. Never got homework sent home... How are they supposed to be graded and tested when they aren't getting work to practice? The teachers just seem lazy. My child was supposed to receive additional education help and be pulled from class and that has not happened. I also have had some other parents complain of the bus systems. Drivers driving reckless and one time the students flying out of their seats and falling over. Also lots of behavior issues and fights on the bus that the mom wasn't being made aware of. They won't tell you anything that goes on. You have to hear about it from your child and take action yourself. Can't wait to be out of this negative environment and to see my child get back to themselves. Horrible school.

To say that this school is dysfunctional is an understatement. I am so happy that my children no longer attend EME! As another parent stated the educational quality of this school is poor. The investigations math that this school district uses is a joke, and should you leave your children will be behind in math. But never fear they will be just as behind in language arts. There are a lot of behavioral problems at this school both with students and teachers. I assure you that nothing will be done about either. If your child should need any type of special education (i.e. speech or dyslexia) be prepared to file a grievance or the district will deny you. RUN away from this school and district!!!

My son has attended this school for a year and a half. We have discovered that it is like any other school. Yes, bullies exist but getting in the school facing the principle and teachers to make sure it is handled has to be done. I am impressed with the new principle and his zero tolerance! He also addressed an issue my son had with his teacher as well. I feel this is a really good school, but more time and emphasis in gifted and talented would be nice. The curriculum I feel is good and my son loves the school and his teachers. I do feel the arts are neglected. I see very little from the music program . And as for the comments below, I think you found an angry parent who cannot even use proper punctuation or grammar and claims to be a teacher. Interpret that as you will.My son says there is discrimination of which he has been taught not only to not discriminate but seek out those who suffer from it, befriend them and show them the good in this world. The PTA does a good job here but I have never seen a school where the parents ignore each other. There needs to be more communication between parents for the children's best interest.

The qualifications couldn't be all that HIGH, you can't even spell HIGHER. You know, it's sad when a person picks up and moves from one place to settle in another place. Then they start Trashing the place they've moved to, and telling everybody how good the place was they moved from. "THEN WHY THE HECK DID YOU MOVE?" I'm almost positive that highway that brought you here, goes back the other way.......

This is a wonderful school. The teachers are amazing and everyone really is very nice. The PTA is wonderful as well, as it has used its funds to pay for the children to have AR tests (since the budget has cut it out). It is an older school, but the best one in my opinion.

My daughter attended Kindergarten @ Eagle Mountain Elem this past year. The school is very parent and child orientied. They strive to keep the parents involved in their childs education. They have check in stations to ensure visitors are not roaming the halls without checking in to the office. This is comforting as a parent to know that individuals will not be roaming halls with wrong intentions. They have a great PTA group that works hard to keep the children and school in the best interest. I liked that they make there own fundrasiers that allows all of the profit to go to the school vs a fundraising company. The fundraisers involve the children coming together as a group for a day of fun and ecercise to raise money. THe principal is awesome, he is very hands on and involved with everything going on at the school.

From what we have seen so far this is a great school for children to grow and teachers are focused and structured.

Eagle Mountain Elementry is a great school. I attended this school many years ago & now my children are attending. I have watched the growth of EME. I feel it is still a small school and the one on one is still there as I received. My children love going there. The teachers are in touch with the parents & everyone is so nice. I would recommend this to anyone moving into the Eagle Mountain Saginaw ISD.

Eagle Mountain Elementary is a terrific school. I have 3 children who attend this school, and each one of my children absolutely love school and their teachers! If you are moving to FortWorth, I definitely recommend Eagle Mountain Elementary for your children!
