I am miserable at this school. And Im not a kid who hates school normally. I have spent the last two years just trying to keep away from other kids. There is tons of bullying, fighting, loud cursing, and my teachers can barely control the class. Just when I'm about to understand something the teacher will have to stop everything to write a referral or scream and yell at the kids to sit down and shut up. Send your kids to some other school if you want them to do good and not feel like their heads are going to explode at the end of the day. Some of the teachers are great, but what can they do, it's only a few of them against tons of bad kids.

This is possibly the biggest failure I have felt as a parent having to send my child here. The office staff are among the rudest most unorganized group of adults I have ever had the misfortune to come across. It is not a safe environment for children, there is foul mouthed children running rough shot over the entire school. I address major issues with principal only to get a smile and a nod of the head and never hear or see any action taking place to improve the place. Teachers have told me, "Get your child out asap, your child has potential that will count for nothing here, and ultimately your child will be ruined academically". I have now seen this first hand as my child went from scholar roll to D and C marks even accomplishing an F on interims. My child is devastated and wants out, and financially I have no alternative! Please don't make the mistake I did, by entrusting your child's education to this school! PLEASE!!!

I like the school, very big in size, staff is pretty friendly. Students need to focus more on having excellent behavior at all times but at this day and time I guess that is too much to expect from 12-14 year olds.

Elkhardt Middle School is an amazing Middle school in the inner city of Richmond VA that could definitely benefit from additional funding to ensure students have accurate supplies and learning aids. The teachers, staff and faculty at EMS are amazing and truly want to see their students succeed!

I am so unfortunate to have my daughters attend this school. I am highly displeased with the faculty, students, and principals behaviors. The students freely use of foul language along with the teachers is very shocking. I have made several attempts to speak with the principal who is always missing in action, and has yet to return any of my numerous phone calls shows me his lack of concern. I found the staff to be very un-professional, and un-organized. I feel awful knowing that I have trusted this school to oversee my daughters while I work. They have come to me with stories of things going on in the school, and I cant even get in touch with the proper authoritive figure to let him be aware of what is going on in his school. I regret moving to this area without seeking the low scores that this school has achieved.

The staff is very disrespectful and does not have control over their students.

I walked in to this school and thought i was in a playground, there were children everywhere no supervision, fighting, cursing and running throughout the halls. The teachers that were around were being disrespected by students. I do not think this is a safe enviornment.
