I've had two kids go through this school one currently enrolled. I've never had any problems and everyone is very nice. My daughter loves it. My son loved it as well. The sports programs are great and the teachers seem to be involved with the kids. My daughter had a 4.0 and my son kept a 3.6 while there. I was surprised at some of the negatives because we have been nothing but happy with this school and the programs offered.

I am a student at EGMS, and i absolutely hate it. The principals && counslers act like the could care less about whats happening to you, they just want you to just be quiet and follow the rules (hence the saying 'children should be seen not heard) theres a few G R E A T teachers but the rest are either to cocky, or just don't care. i wouldn't reccomend this to anyone, execpt for someone that just cared about there education and nothing else (because for education EGMS is a wonderful school) but other than that the hallways are TOOO crowded. They make the younger kids go on the later bells, so therefore they almost (and sometimes do) miss their buses (i have before)

I am currently a ninth grade student at Greenbrier East High School, but last year I attended Easter Greenbrier Middle school and had an excellent experience. The activities were fun, the teachers were outstanding, and the principals were kind and friendly. Some of the teachers cared more about sports than their students' education while others cared only about their own paycheck. Some teachers related to the students, which made it easier to learn, while other teachers acted as if they know nothing at all about the subject they were teaching. The school itself was very well kept together, however; the lockers were much too small. All you could fit in the lockers was a small book bag and two textbooks. The hallways were always crowded, it was like rush hour in New York in the halls. There are two lunch lines, but they were always too long.

Eastern is an excellent school! Each student is looked after with great care and consideration. The parent involvement at the school is also fantastic. If you are interested in this school for your student--please call, schedule a visit, or explore the Greenbrier County Schools website. Great things are happening at EGMS!

I attended this school last year. Although there were a few good teachers and faculty, I had an overall bad experience there. The principals were unintelligent, and we were encouraged (actually told) to act like sheep while they, 'the shepherds', guided us in how to act and follow rules. Indeed,I felt just like a sheep there- I was expected to simply follow rules and not object. However, I wouldn't say there was anywhere else in the region that would be better. My perspective was widened by my being with students of all different backgrounds. It's just middle school anyway.

I attended EGJHS and I hated it. I had a few very good teachers, though most have retired or moved to different schools by now. The administration is unfair and biased, and most teachers are unable to control their classrooms. Most classrooms were pure pandomonium throughout the year. Teachers are soon to pick 'favorites' and let those kids do wahtever they wish, even torment other students, while the other students are discriminated against. The administration looks over this. Homework was heavy, and the teachers were poor. A student that is not interested in learning is not likely to succeed. I took honors classes while enrolled so I could have better teachers and learning opportunities, but those programs are no longer in use. It is sufficient to say that if your child is not a natural learner, send them to another school.

My child goes to this school and she is miserable there. That school has no organization, the students probably have more of an idea of what id going on then the staff does. If you send your children here they need to be able to teach themselves the lessons. Its this simple the staff just doesn't care and if they do they should show it.

I have had two children in this school and can honestly say that between them they had maybe 3-4 excellent teaches. This school is definately for self-learners. If your child can't learn on their own, they will not succeed and most of the teachers won't bother to help them.

I would not send my dog to Eastern Greenbrier jr. High! I hate that two of my children have had to suffer being there! For anyone moving into the area with children 13-15, I would very strongly suggest they NOT look to send their children to this school! The administrators are pure idiots. There is NO equality between students and faculty. Students receive little respect. While there are 'some'very good teachers, most are very poor! One teacher there, in fact, knowing the school is so poor, has her children at another school in the county. This should tell anyone something about how BAD this school is. Other parents have pulled their children out tho home school them. County administrators would have one believe this is a great school. They lie through their teeth big time! Don't send your children to this school!
