I am a 6th grader at EMS, and except for my 2nd and 3rd period teacher, I love EMS. I can tell she is out to get me, because I have all A's except in her classes.

I had personal issues with this school due ot all the bully issues. I just don't get why so many kids bully and threaten. When one of my friends kids were threatened the Principal said it was a "joke". I was concerned about the safety of all the kids and why the School District did not seem to care. I think we need to vote in some new people and make some changes for our kids sake. These people have lost control over the population and the teachers just don't seem to feel they can do anything about it.

I think the Teachers should do better than they do about notifing parents of their kids grades.Dont wait till they fail and then contact you.That happened to me.They need to test teachers to see if they are capable of teaching our children. I wonder about them.

I know the school is rated on the low 14 out of 17 academically, maybe we should review the teaching standards, and their practices. Early modification, and updated teaching techniques may further the classroom participation and involvement. Their are some children that with high IQs don't have the tolerance for ongoing lectures in monotone voices. Alot of children learn better hands on, with more involvement and interaction. Teaching within groups, and working on projects that bring the words to life. I know most successful teaching stratagies, are probably in the better scoring school districts. Eatonville Middle School might want to gain more knowledge in handling children, especially when some children are being Left Behind. Weyerhauser is a Great School, a wonderful school my children did exceptionally well in, I wish they could of extended it at least through 6th grade. I hope they can build a Middle School to match that.

Eatonville is where I grew up and the school system turned me around. I live in rural Alaska now and the schools here are very poor at best. So I had to send my 8th grader to live with Grandma in Eatonville. The school has turned her around excelling at reading and math.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
