Evans City Middle School Ratings & Reviews
ECM is wonderful!! I have four children- two of which have attended ECM already and had different sets of teachers. Our kids were both well prepared for 7th grade! The teachers & staff at ECM are very supportive and in tune with the ever changing needs of all students and curriculums.
I have had 3 children go through this school and we have had nothing but positive experiences with the school. All schools have a few teachers who are not outstanding examples of what you hope for in an educator, but they are few and far between at the school. The principals are visible within the school and work to build relationships with the students. In recent years, they have increased the number of clubs and opportunities for enrichment for students. Overall, it has been my impression that the teachers work hard to create an atmosphere that is conducive to learning and fun for the students.
I love all the different things that this school offers. The teachers are great and they offer really great evening programs for parents. Really strong PTO too!
I am a former student who attended this school for all 7 years from K-6. I liked the fun days we had. I got very lucky and did not have any bad teachers until 6th grade, but all bad in 6th grade. I kind of in a way like this school better than the 7-8th grade building on the main campus because it was a good difficulty/pace. Once you hit 6th/7th grade it REALLY starts to pick up. Now for the main three things I disliked about the school (in order from least to most disliked). 3. All the substitute teachers are mean, and leave bad reports, so we get in trouble when the regular teacher comes back. 2. Although I never really bought lunch here, people often complained about the food. You pretty much have to eat what they served that day, pack your lunch, or go hungry. 1. Now time for my least favorite part about this school. No air conditioning. The only rooms that are air conditioned are the library, and the computer labs. Most parts of the building don't even have air ducts, and are heated by units under the windows, that are basically radiators with fans to blow the air out, and covers so you don't get burnt. On a hot day, It can get hot enough to pass out, especially on top floor.
Both of my children attended this school and I found that the teachers were uninterested in their performance and frequently use student correction of homework, which is a sign of laziness on the teaching of our children. Children with high functioning Autism are not handled well at all and some students suffer because of this situation. The principal is not a strong leader and does not require excellence of his teaching staff. There is absolutely no support for any children with social behaviors. I am very disappointed with the school for there lack of support and there is NO after school learning enrichment programs offered.....
