    Excellent teachers very caring excellent communication between teacher and parent. My son has thrived since moving to the area. He is in AP classes and is an A/B honor role student. His self respect has improved he is making friends better than ever before. Thank you Ebenezer schools!

    Horrible enviroment. Staff dont want to hear any parent feedback. They are all very rude and disrespectful to the parents and in particular to the students. I have tried on numerous occasions to talk with the Principal about my issues to NO avail. WILL NOT be sending any more of my children there.

    The school environment is punitive and militant. Staff still blindly support eachother. They are not only disrespectful to the children but also the parents. We have been in this school for two years. We have been in three other school systems before this one. My kids are honor roll students. This school is the first school my kids have ever complained about. They are intimidated by many staff members. The majority of the staff is non supportive and rigid. They show no compassion or understanding of how to create a positive environment. Their main goal seems to be to keep children and parents in line.

    I recently moved into this school district from another state (last year) - and so far am not too impressed. My children are bored with the academics offered. They are not being challenged at all - but I was told how advanced they are by several staff members. My kids are repeating classes they did last year- not enough offered as far as band/chorus options accelerated learning or TAG programs. I will most definitely do my homework when we move again and CALL the school instead of going by reviews on a website or state testing. Not impressed.

    Good academic standards but staff members blindly back each other and don't care what parents have to say. They do and say what they want and that's it. Students are secondary and parents need to be quiet. The untouchables. Effingham has a bad problem with the 'old network'.

    It is a good school. The teachers seem to care about the students and I have never feared for my children's safety while they are there. I have been overall happy with the school. I do think they are a little too strict with the dress code and some of the rules. Overall it is a good school.

    Ebenezer Middle School has superior academics a varity of extracurricular activities for all students and parental involvement is welcomed. The teachers care about the students and work to help them succeed. I have never been more pleased to have my children in this school. Most of the children that attend this school are respectful to adults. You don't hear of fights at this school. IF one does occur it is taken care of immediately. This school is of very high standards and quality. The environment is conducive to learning therefore the students excel.
