    I would highly recommend EMS to any parents wanting a public school education for their children. I am pleased to be part of such a happy and supportive school. Students and their families receive the finest education opportunity and nurturing support any community member could hope for. Many parents also enjoy extracurricular participation in classroom and after school activities with their children. Our teachers administration office staff and paraprofessionals are phenomenal!

    This is the worst school ever. I have had three daughters attend Marsh Elementary (wonderful) and then flounder at Eisenhower. Took the older two out and put them in private school now we are moving out of state to get away from the horrible Rockford Middle/High schools. Many teachers don't care and make no secret of it. Uniforms are unkempt no guidelines are followed. I would rather move across the country than keep my daughter in this school.
