EMS is very cliquish. If you don't start 6th grade as an Investigator, you are not cool and never will be.

We feel very lucky that our kids go to Enterprise. The great majority of teachers are excellent. The music department is phenomenal!!! The volleyball program has been great as well. Overall, I feel like they are getting a good education. I would say the worst part about middle school is the social ...  Read more

The new HI-CAP program at Enterprise takes 5th graders' MAP scores & alters the criteria to allow 5 times the number of students to enter the program as 6th graders. The new criteria is broad, unspecific, & often is the result of parents complaining enough to the councilors to get their kids in. The ...  Read more

My kids enjoyed their years at EMS. I particularly liked the team approach, where the counselors assigned kids to a team of teachers for sixth grade; I think it helped with the transition to middle school.

My daughter came home from her second day very dejected. She told me she was stupid because she was on a dumb team. The ...  Read more

My 8th grade Hi-Cap student has had very good teachers who are communicative through e-mail. I think most classmates are like her in getting work done during class time with not too much homework.

My child is often not able to explain what she is learning at school. When I have the homework and ask her questions there is very little information she can relate. Too many days off and too many fun days. Since parents are not able to meet with the teachers we must email them. Only one has ever ...  Read more

Enterprise is a terrific school! Great teachers, a caring administration, excellent counselors, and a beautiful building. Good activities for kids, sports, music, drama, etc. I have been very impressed. High academic standards, teachers want you to think more than do busy work. Great job Enterprise!
