My child is in his 2nd year at EMS and is thriving! He is provided opportunity to be activities after school, he is excelling in his classes and is driven to be a team leader in his classes. He is happy to be a student at EMS!

All the students are rowdy and the teachers aren't very good. The principal claims Evans as "the greatest school in the universe"

I think Evans is great! I just recently moved back to ottumwa with my parents. I would not choose any other school. Its a good clean enviorment and you get to meet new people. I am so lucky to attend Evans. Any student to attend EMS is lucky. We may have had a few problems but the school is very good. Teachers help when you need them to and they auctually listen to you. They care if you pass, not like other people have posted on here.

This has been a nightmare for me. My child has attended both 7th and 8th grade here. This is the only middle school in Ottumwa and 6th grade has recently been moved to this building as well. This is way too many children to have at this difficult age in one building. Keeping track of all these kids has been an issue, communication with parents about their child has been ridiculous. I don't even know when my child has to attend p.m. school or has had a detention. And it has never been clarified as to what p.m school is. Some teachers communicate well and want to help your child, others however, really don't care if your child fails, they have been unwilling to work with the parents and their child. I have been soo frustrated with the lack of communication. I think the teacher here are very overwhelmed
