I enjoyed my stay at EMS. I have no graudated and moved on to EHS as an upper classman, I think the teachers are great. Mrs.Willis is by far the best teacher ever. Id give her 5 stars. But administration is the worst I have ever delt with. One minor mistake and you are on the "bad kid" list and out casted. Mr.Briggs and Mr. Kirsh wouldnt shake my hand at graduation. Mr.Briggs also got to close to many of the girls in my grade, as in hugging and what not. just un-professional.
I have been to three schools in my life and EMS is by FAR the best one I have been to. The new principal is amazing, and all but one algebra seminar teacher cares lovingly about the students. The students are so nice too, they accept anyone. The teachers are a little strict over little things, but they care three times as much about us as the other schools I've been too. Over all, this could very well be one of the best schools in the country.
I have had good teachers here, but I've also had bad ones. I think that my favorite teacher I've ever had here was Greg Mernick, a smart and nice guy. I think that going to his classroom made my hard middle school journey alot better because there were days where I just couldnt stand it! I also really enjoyed music class here. Those two were my main favorite uplifting things about this school. I think Mr. Laush was excellent too. I think over all the school was so-so though. Any time you get introuble its over something kind of not neccasary. I think that the school deserves a 3 star rating.
I like it because it's really fun, and there are a lot of fun after school activities. I am in the junior iron chef competition and the family consumer science teacher helped us come up with a really good recipe!
They focus too much on minor problems (like a quick friendly hug or a silenced cell phone or ipod with headphones at lunch or a bare shoulder) and escalate the punishment until the student doesn't care about anything, including learning. Save the discipline for REAL problems so kids don't feel like they're in prison.
Hey, I'm an 8th grader at this school now. I am sooo sad that i have to leave it. Its been a pretty great 3 years so far and we have some time left. I'll live it to the fullest. But thats not the point. Some of the best teachers I 've ever had are in this school. Teachers like the two in the Nova tea. The Nova team is the best team in the school I think its one of the more challenging and the teachers are just amazing!
