    East Tipp is awesome place to learn! The school has done very well on the state's progress test (ISTEP). It provides students with the academic rigor to be competitive in high school and beyond. The teachers also go above and beyond with extra curricular activities that extend the school's curriculum. They also engage in several community service programs.

    East Tipp is a very good school compared to the other middle schools in TSC. The students get to be with great teachers that make classes fun and exciting. Many of the students are ahead of the other student when they reach school from what they have learned at East Tipp. Also the teachers care about the students even after they have left their class and grade. East Tipp is also a great place to learn how to give to the community and school spirit. Over the many years East Tipp has given a great amount to the Food Finders Food Bank. They have also donated alot of money to many different things food finders pennies for patients and natural disasters around the world. They also make the school feel like one and makes sure they try the hardiest at everything. For the food drive there is a "Food Flood Friday" when students bring in as much food as possible. At pep sessions there are cheers for the "School of Love". After leaving this school years ago I still have very many good memories from classes teachers and school spirit.

    I think this school has catching up to do in the areas of Science and English. The hands on projects were nonexistent and the ISTEP scores reflect this lack of knowledge.

    Well East Tipp is pretty good. The main problems my pupils and I have had are some of the teachers aren't really that understanding. I've had many problems with several teachers. But other than that the activities East Tipp has are excellent. The speech team is wonderful. Intramurals aren't that bad either.

    I have found that over my years of going to East Tipp I have been very satisfied. Teh teachers are all excellent and interesting to learn rom because they all have their own unique way teaching subjects. The eighth grade math teacher is an especially great teacher because he understands the topics he is teaching so well. The Speech Team should also be recognized for being outstanding. The three teachers who work with the team really know how to give speeches. We ahve been first in the county for more than ten years now. I have also found that the athletics organizations are very well organized and the coaches should be commended for their outstanding work with the athletes. Here at East Tipp academics has always come first. But all of the exracurricular activities are also fun and exciting ways of meeting new people. I loved going to East Tipp!

    I would like to say East Tipp is a very well educated school. Each class has something different about it. For instance the seventh grade class is very strong; they have very good test scores and they are fairly good at sports. But unfortunitly the eighth grade class is not as good it has lower test scores and the athletic abilities are limited. Yet the teachers are some of the best in the county. This is a very good school.

    First off I would like to say what Ryo said about East Tipp have a very good Speech Team and Math Counts team is very true. East Tipp is also a very great place to learn and is arguably the finest school in the county when it comes to Education. What Ryo said that wasnt true was the athletics not being very good. The Basketball team is very prestigious in getting to the County Championship every year. The football team is good from time to time. The track is spectacular. The Wrestling team is also very good. That is all I have to say. Thank You for your time.

    I believe that east tipp has a more hospitable environment for students. The teachers care about each student. The most spectacular part of east tipp is the extracirricular activities. The East Tipp speech team is the best in the county with individual attention. There is a mathcounts team and a great math teacher who runs both activities. The athletics aren't very spectacular though.
