The Eaton PTSA has grown so much this year. The staff is working hard to create an environment to encourage more parental involvement. We have been here for two year & both daughters love their teachers and the school

Well, I'm an eighth grader at eaton middle school, and things have gotten ugly here lately. The admin and guidance department is weak, and the principal isn't trying to help me be successful in school, and wants tosee me fail. I can't be a kid, because verything I do gets blown out of proportion, and the principal tries to lock me out of different programs. Some of the teachers are mean and manipulative, and I can't wait until thee year is over. Im almost in tears because winter break is over. I am not satisfied with this school at all.

Eaton was the best 3 years of my life. I am a former student at Eaton (class of 2008) and what i have to say about this school is its pretty good. Even though its been years since i left I have 2 cousins currently attend and the ironic part they are on the same teams i was 6A and 7M. The neighborhood i live in i was the only one that went to Eaton everyone else was at Davis it is GHETTO!. At Eaton hardly no fights, people are nice, and smart teachers. The only bad part about Eaton is when you leave there is no zone for that school so half your friends you were in middle with will probably go to Hampton, Kecoughtan or Phoebus high schools if your a Bethel students only a hand-full come out from Eaton. But its a good school 6A 7M AND 8A are the BEST TEAMS hands down.........

Eaton Middle is an amazing middle school. The teachers are all excited to be teaching and the students are excited to learn. The school does very well with their SOL's and behavior. I am a first year teacher and couldn't be any happier at any other school.

I have only been a Eaton parent for a few weeks, but I can already see how the staff cares about our children. I know that they want our children to excel just as much as we parents do.

This is my daughter's first year in middle school. We have come across a wonderful principal, assistant principal, and teachers! They have really made me and my family feel welcome and feel safe. Her teachers have made her feel excited about school and she has taken the responsibility of middle school with great pride!

I'm a new 8th grader at EMS and I think its an amazing school. Last year I was on 7M and the teachers were really great. Both of the math teachers I've had since starting middle school have been amazing.Plus the band is awesome!!!!!

I am a 6th grader for the '08-09 school year, about to go 7th grade (yes!). This school is very easy to adjust to...you get the hang of the schedule in about a day. But it is a lot of walking...especially if youre in the back of the building like in 6B, or 7M, you have to walk back and forth to the gym and the electives. Teachers vary; some are nicers than other; some fuss more. Overall, it's OK.

I have a special needs child. I found the continuous phone calls overwhelming,not calls to improve the situation but reactive phone calls of a frustrated teacher. My child came home every day frustrated and crying. I would not recommend them for children with special needs.

This school is not one I would recomend for those with special needs. Every thing that the school does is reactive and not proactive. I am unsure how this school is for those without special needs, but I WOULD NOT reccomend them for any child with ANY special needs. It is a great waste of time.

Eaton's band is better than phenomenal,ask anyone. Middle school bands just aren't supposed to sound this good. If music is your child's love, you should consider this program. The band director is demanding, but what your child gains from him is priceless. Academically, Eaton served my child well. The teachers of 7T and 8C were very strong. Eaton underwent significant improvement over the last two years due to their fantastic principal. She changed the atmosphere with her dynamic and caring personality. Unfortunately, she has recently transferred, to Hampton. She will be missed, but the new Principal has a great reputation in the school system.

Eaton is the first public school my son has attended. The transition from private to public school has gone well. To ease our concern, we met with the previous principal who took time to answer our questions but also the questions our son had. The current principal is very hands on. You'll see her at special events, in the parking lot or walking down the hall. The students respond well to her and her personality makes you feel at ease. It's nice when she waves or says hello and actually knows your name. We feel fortunate that our son attends Eaton. He's been given many opportunities to grow and will be prepared for high school, wherever he attends. Hats off to Mrs. Chambers and all the teachers!
