    I LOVEEEE East Millbrook Middle!! . I made a bunch of friends. Also there are many cultures that enrolled in this middle school. I recommend that more students enroll in this school. There are three 6th grade teams Lions(my team) the Tigers team and the panthers. The teachers are nice however a few teachers( I'm not gonna mention them ) that can be a bit annoying and very difficult( homework wise). Other than that East Millbrook Magnet Middle School is the best middle school EEVVEERR!!!!!

    East Millbrook is an International Baccalaureate (IB) and A+ for Creative Arts Magnet Middle School. Our dual magnet program is available to all students our base population and student that apply to attend. Students at our school are exposed to rigorous academic curriculum and superior fine and creative arts program. Our students love the diverse population and teachers that are committed to their success. I love East Millbrook and believe that additional funds will strengthen our STEM (Science technology engineering and mathematic) especially the technology component -- more computer equipment for our dynamic students.

    I AM A STUDENT AT EAST MILLBROOK AND I LOVE IT THERE THE TEACHERS ARE GREAT I JUST LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Im not sure how a person can put such a low rating on a school if their child doesnt even attend. Both my children currently attend this school and I have been nothing but satisfied. The teachers work great with the parents some go above and beyond by calling you. The administration is strict but in this day and age thats a GOOD THING. Both my children have had a great experience and I highly recommend this school.

    Unsafe school with self-serving administration. Poor facilities unruly students disinterested parents are the norm. I would not send my children to this school.

    My daughter is now an 8th Grader at East Millbrook Middle School. Her experience there has overall been very good. The majority of the teachers have been fantastic and have gone well above and beyond. The few minor challenges we had were addressed immediately by the principal. In my daughter s 8th grade year her 7th grade math teacher volunteered to come to school at 6 45 am to give my daughter extra help and support. If you are an engaged parent your child should have a very good experience at this school.

    My child is now an 8th grader at EMMS who is AG identified and the issues we have had are extremely minimal. Like with ANY school there are teachers who should choose another profession however they have been few. I have always been an involved parent and made it known to my children's teachers that we are in it together. If you are not involved with your child's teacher and do not present a unified front to your child you are doing a dis-service to your child. We have enjoyed the teachers and the activities. She is will miss the school next year.

    My child is a 7th grader that attends EMMMS for the 12-13 school year. It s hard to give the school an overall rating. He has some really great teachers who are dedicated to educating kids. He has others that struggle to see past stereotypes and focusing on education. He recently had two teachers to quit midyear and that experience has really set back his learning. I m not sure why the teachers left but they were the stronger teachers. The principal appears very proactive and responsive to the needs of the school and the students. I have not had a great experience with the assistant principal this year but I am continuing to work on that relationship. Last year the assistant principal for 6th grade was great but she is no longer there. As of now I am considering other schools for next year in hopes to provide a more stable environment.

    Som of the admin staff are very rude and others just sit by and don't care or try to even help. This is the worst case of passing the buck because their lazy...

    This school has potential but I know some staff members needs to get fired for unprofessional treatment of some students and some parents.

    I have had two children attend this school and it was/has been a horrible experience for both. One was in the special ed class and the children are not integrated with the rest of the population. The other child went there for one year and we pulled him/her out for a year-round school and that experience was outstanding. If you have a child with special needs avoid this school like the plague. They do not communicate with the parents at all.

    Great School. In my opinion the teachers have been very responsive to all my needs and my daughter loves it!!

    My oldest is in 7th and my youngest will attend next year. The only negative thing about the school in my mind is the lack of homework. I'd like my son to be pushed harder because he is lazy by nature and he needs that pressure to do the work that he's capable of. Otherwise we are very happy. I love that the kids have to take a foreign language and an art but also have room for other electives as well. The AG Model UN class has been a great experience and we've been very pleased with his teachers. There are some fantastic opportunities that your child can't get at a regular base school. We have never experienced any violence and my son is not afraid to be at school at all. The school is proactive with a tip line for parents or students to anonymously call in trouble situations so the staff can intervene before it escalates.

    My son entered the 6th grade at EMMS last year and we could not wait for the school year to end. First of all my son missed three weeks of 2 core classes. They had him in 4 electives and two core classes. My son is identified as AG but they only offered one class for AG students each year. This was his first year there and we had no idea how they operate. Then the teachers seem to show disinterest have (bad)attitudes are not challenging. One teacher didn't require homework as it was optional. My son made A's all year but I'm sure he didn't have to work hard. This school made my son academically lazy. I'm hoping he will be able to get back on track at his new middle school this year. The guidance counselor and asst. principle were useless. Glad to be out of there!

    I dropped my oldest off 3 years ago with tears in my eyes because of the reviews at this school. It has changed over the years and this is not a bad school. The teachers keep you updated and they offer classes you can't get anywhere else. The Arts program and their teachers are the best in the county. Our base school changed last year to what this web site called a more successful school. We stayed at the school and had our youngest enter into the 6th grade. My children love it there and have been very successful. There are some behavior problems as in any school.

    This school has great teachers that keep you updated on the progress of your student if he/she is falling below what they should be doing. they also have the SPAN accounts to keep up with how your child is doing. They are an IB school so the Arts are a big part of each child's curriculum.

    East millbrook has changed over the years but I think it;s really good now and it has improved they just need to get rid of the misbehaved students that are a harm to the school.

    East Millbrook has changed over the years. We have about 1 700 students this year with tons of pride. But don't let the test scores fool you. It is a great school. All the classes are regular but if you want you can go into the AG program and have advance classes. I do have to say personally I love the IB program. It opens up a lot more oppertunities. The school gets alot more funding because it is a magnet school. (To learn more about the magnet program go to wcpss.net and click on schools then magnet) The school just got a new principal this year and also got a new 3 story building for the 7th and 8th grades along with some rooms for some electives. we are also the only middle school in the country that has the Africian and Tiako Drumb group!! Go to eastmillbrookms.wcpss.net for more into.

    I go here and the teachers spend most of class trying to discipline or catch up the students that get in trouble or don't do anything so us that do we end up sitting there for the whole class periods. A lot of my classes sometimes we just sit there
