If I could give this school less than 1 star I would. It used to be a great school. Now the administration and people in charge (which are all interim leaders because they cannot hold onto ANY one) are a joke. Very unprofessional and I've been privy to behavior from them that deems worse than any student that attends this fiasco of a school. I DO believe that they have some great teachers, but they are overshadowed by the debacle of a staff. If you can place your child elsewhere, I suggest doing it. At least until they actually get some staff that care about their jobs, community, and students education.
I am abused. Hit,slapped,pinched All these words tell you what happens to me all the time at this school. I've never had better grades but I'm still hurt all the time. I know what ever school you go to you'll be bullied but this place huts me. I like only few teachers,they all don't care( even if it happens right in front of the) if students are bullied I'm always getting hurt in class like badly. If I say something they put me on step, step is a poor excuse for discipline at there school they don't have detention. Step is confusing to. I'm a good student with good grades I play sports and not a nerd but still come on really they can do better at helping students.
We barely made it through the school year here. I have a special needs child on an IEP who was sent to detention and given Step 4s for being disorganized and not participating in class as expected. The principal and vice principal did not understand my child and the only solution was discipline. They did not help my child solve problems or work through issues. Not the best environment if you have a child with special needs.
The answer to all discipline problems seems to be to suspend the student. There is no parent or outside review of any student disciplinary decisions except by the school. Most of the teachers do not update their grades online more than once a month, so it is hard to stay current on your childs progress. Excellent sports and music programs. Nice facilities.
I am currently a student at Eisenhower. It is a great school with a new campus, great teachers, and a good learning program.
i was a former student here at Eisenhower Middle school, and eisenhower felt like home to me. a home away from home the teachers were warm and helpful, sure it has many old teachers, but what school doesnt ? this school really helped me come out of my shell and make new friends. the staff and students were all plenty nice. i remember the last day of my schooling there. teachers & students i never had knew my name. i could have sworn i knew everyone in that school. i would walk the hallways and practacally say hello to every soul. now that i am out of that school i miss it. it had wonderful leadership by the staff. and the principal was great! i love Eisenhower Middle School. and if i stay in everett long enough my children will be there too (:
Wonderful discipline and safety programs. Great leadership by staff. Beautiful new building and plenty of grounds for kids to move around. Teachers all working hard to make this the great school it is and bringing change to always improve. Happy and friendly environment.
positive teachers and great role models for the kids. All working hard together, trying new things to keep the learning atmosphere encouraging and enjoyable. We love this school!
Great school principal and vice principal. The children enjoy being at school. Lots of opportunities for the kids to develop and learn.
I am currently an 8th grader at this school, and I think that our school is no worse than most schools. Sure, there are some pretty old teachers here, but there is also a lot of young, nice teachers too. Not everyone is a bully or being bullied at our school. We have very nice counselers that I feel that everyone could confide in. As for the remodel, we just got one completely finished last year.
As a parent of 4 kids and aunt to two more, I have been through the Eisenhower woes. The kids are either bullied or bullies. The crime is rampant including death threats & hit lists. Voilence is not limited to the boys. Teachers/staff have 'reports' filled out but nothing happens. The kids bullied become the next generation of bullies. Lucky ones fly under the radar. High school was a relief for all these kids. District Administrators tell me it's the worst school in the district. Parent involvement is looked at as an annoyance. Children-afraid of being narcs since nothing comes of telling & staff seem incapable of helping. I firmly believe a Columbine like incident is in their future. Most all those incidences happen at the JR high level. Something to think about before it's to late.
I too am an former student of Eisenhower, I graduated from there a little over two years ago, and I would have to say that the teachers there are all teachers who seem to resent the fact that they are teaching at middle school level, and therefore many don't seem to take an active role in teaching. I think that could seriously be improved...remodeling is going to fix the school on the outside, but until the teachers and staff come together to fix the heart of the school, it will remain as dead as it has been.
I'm not a parent I'm an ex student at this school I never got the attention from teachers the Prin. is good and so is office staff. But you are lacking one one one with the students I didn't like Eisenhower Midd because of the location and the way that I was treated by the teachers. Thank You
