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.
