    The teachers gave up on actually teaching kids they view their role as babysitters. There is very little learning going on. Mathematics is in particularly bad shape the "teacher" just gives website addresses and tells the kids to learn new concepts there. The same goes for homework. Last year in 6th grade a particular algorithm was explained incorrectly (the instructor didn't figure out yet that she could just use internet so she actually tried to explain it herself). When it was pointed out to her that she was wrong the response was "oh someone showed me how to do this". Other classes are not much better. And as far as high scores the school gets that's not a huge surprise Sudbury is a fairly well-off town and parents can afford tutors.

    Extremely incompetent staff members. Horrible discipline system. The teachers are a complete joke most of them are so horrible that is disturbing. Doesn't prepare you very well for high school and in to many cases the staff just does not have proper control.

    I am in seventh grade and I have always loved this school. Most of the kids are really nice and the school puts a big emphasis on anti-bullying. I have advanced a lot especially in spanish and math. The teachers support you a lot and make sure you are caught up. I don't know the others but the my grade's counselor is really nice and checks up on the students from time to time. We got a new principal last year and he is really involved and nice as well. The music opportunities are great as I am in a select chorus and a normal one and there is also band and orchestra. Maybe the other reviews are outdated but I love my school.

    I am a junior at Lincoln-Sudbury Highschool and this past September volunteered to be a freshmen tour guide. When the new students were asked what they thought about Curtis many simply called it 'a jail'. As a prior student at Curtis I could not have put it better myself. Many of teachers at Curtis that need to thoroughly review the ECMS core values that are constantly drilled into the students heads Learning Respect Responsibility. Many teachers lack the ability to teach the many types of learners and leave them behind. They are very unaccomadating and demoralize their students. Often they have a very disrespectful 'snooty' attitude towards the middle-schoolers and put them down as opposed to building them up. There is little responsibility given to the students and no trust. I can honestly say that Curtis is an embarrassment to a town with such great elementary and highschools.

    My child had problems with 4 teachers here and left with lower MCAS scores than when she entered...thats reassuring.

    Ephraim Curtis is generally a very good school however the school is a bit of a rudderless ship and has not had a truely strong Principal for several years. The teachers need direction and I would like to see this issue corrected this year. There is nobody at the top to discuss issues with.

    I just started 7th grade at ECMS. This is my second year there and although it can be a little overwhelming (3 projects by the 4th day of school) it is a great place. The teachers are usually all great and they are great with the kids. Almost any new kid would easily be able to join in and feel like you were always there. It is easy to get used to the atmosphere and there are some teachers that are just awesome. If you are thinking of moving here it would be a great idea to do so. there are lots of extra-curricular/ after school activities to do for almost everyone including the school play which is a huge event here. And like the person said before me it is sort of disappointing that there are no late buses this year. But other than that it is a great school.

    ECMS is a great school! The teachers are really nice fun and actually make learning fun. The kids are nice and very helpful to one another. Its great to be treated equally! There are no cliques and you can get help anywhere! So to the person who said that well that was 4 years ago; things have most deffinatly changed! And for kids who are 'academically gifted' yeah well everyone gets treated equally but we still all can get one on one help if we need it! The only thing that annoys me is that there are no late buses anymore. But besides that; ECMS is a great public school!

    I go to ECMS and I have loved it since the first day. The teachers really make an effort to make learning fun and if you actually look at the reviews they are extremely outdated. As for 'academically gifted students'? All students at ECMS are treated equally so if you want to be recognized for being smarter than everybody else I would suggest a different school.

    This school is both educational and fun. It has great academics and hands on learning and my daughter loves it there. Very good school lots of friendly people.

    The school is terrible for its reputation. Most of the teachers do not really care about there subject and most of the kids are behind goin into High school. The kids of the twon go to provate school in order to avoid this school that is run terribly. The new principal is awful also.

    We moved to Sudbury at the beginning of middle school and what a mistake! The cliques at this school were horrendous. My daughter was harassed verbally and physically. It got so bad that my daughter had to drop out of school in the middle of eighth grade and was tutored at home. She then transferred to a private school where the students were much kinder and the social scene much more supportive. It was such a shame because academically the school was good. However we did not receive any support from the school counselors or the teachers. My daughter by the way is going to be a National Merit SemiFinalist. This school made no effort to accomodate academically gifted students.

    Academics are very good but some administration and some teachers do not seem to understand the middle school child's social being.
