    This is my son's first year at this school. So far I am real pleased with Ewing Middle School! I like the idea of the disciplinary procedures. It lets me know that it will be very hard for the children to be bullied and all. I was real worried about those type of things. But I now feel secure. I like the security officers always on duty and ready to be on the scene. I have noticed that they are always on the look out! I'm not real sure about the parent volunteer's. I haven't found out a lot about that. But whenever I am needed I will be available. It seems that all the extracurricular teachers are doing great with our kids to keep them involved in school. I would recommend Ewing Middle School to anyone!

    This school has great stuff. The teachers here try to help the kids with their problems. The teachers do have some of their own discipline but they do because they try to protect the students from getting hurt and try to help them pass. The teachers and the staff including the principal loves every student in the school. At Ewing Middle you have several different electives but you do not get to choose. Ewing is a great school and you will love to go to this school. You get have PACT fun day go to school dances. The kids are happy and enjoy the teachers and the work. You do not get very much homework from them. If you are scared to go to Ewing just pretend it was one of your other favorite schools that you went to. You will have fun. Trust me. I LOVE IT!
