    I have a granddaughter that goes to EEMS and for the most part I have been happy with the school and she seems to be happy there. the teachers seem like they really care about the children. There has only been one teacher that I have had a problem with she was a third grade teacher which retired last spring.

    I have a daughter that graduated from EEMS and has since graduated from GHS. I also have a son that is going into first grade at EEMS. The teachers and administrative staff are excellent. They are willing to go the extra mile to help all students whether they are advanced average or slower learners.

    I have two children that attend EEMS and think that the administrative staff and teachers care very much about each and every student within the school. The children are top priority!! I have never heard anything but positive things about EEMS and know other parents agree with my view.

    I have 3 children there at EEMS and I am very dissatisfied with the administration. The students don't get respect from many teachers there so therefore there is no respect given to the teachers by the students. Discipline is not yelling at a child it is teaching a child the difference from right and wrong. I am considering transporting my children to another school in the county due to the extreme differences in instruction as well as discipline.I am affiliated with both schools so I witness the differences.
