    "My daughter started here in 6th grade. We had high expectations because we loved Equestrian Trails right next door and since they're in close proximity we figured they'd be somewhat similar. What we found was teachers that didn't want to teach the first year. We dealt with it figuring MS was different from elementary. Second year, out of all of her teachers, again, one sub par teacher. 8th grade came and we truly saw a pattern. She had a science teacher showing the class baby bunnies being skinned. I had to sign a permission slip for my daughter to watch Titanic in 6th or 7th yet, this didn't warrant the same? My daughter loves animals (as do we, her parents), so, this did not sit well. This teacher is well known in the parental and fellow teaching community to be incompetent. In addition, the school is also bad with handling situations. As long as your child doesn't run into any issues here, I guess I could see how you'd consider it an okay school. Unfortunately, we had an issue. All they wanted to do was sweep it under the rug. There was no formal process at all. I wouldn't send my dog there. Hoping the incoming new Principal changes things drastically."

    "Emerald Cove Middle School is a fabulous school with a rigorous education plan, intelligent teachers, and a strong Leadership Team. My concerns have always been addressed immediately by teachers, guidance counselors, the Nurse, Front Office Staff and the greatest Middle School Principal on this planet, Dr. Lucas!! I LOVE the strict zero tolerance rule at ECMS!! I LOVE their Homework Policy and that my daughter has never ever been given busy-work. Her assignments directly coincide with the class work of that day! I LOVE the safety rules on school wide events and I dearly THANK those who took the time to plan, coordinate and ensure that my daughter had the best time at her year end trip. Dr. Lucas you will be so missed, Ms. Chapman, you are AWESOME!! Deborah Cirincione"

    "My daughter was bullied and groped by several boys and the leadership there blamed my daughter. They didn't perform a thorough investigation, and didn't follow proper Florida Regulations. Leadership there is a joke. Most of the teachers are ill-prepared - come on, going to a hockey game for History Class? What about learning about Henry Flagler or St. Augustine/Ponce de Leon. No wonder why the kids in this school don't do well. Try teaching!"

    "Im in 8th grade and I hate this school. I rather be homeschooled, I told the guidance counselor I dont feel comfortable in a class and the teacher is absolutely rude ( I basically get bullied by the teacher ) and all guidance counselor does is say you will get through it. They don't help at all. If it wasnt for couple more months of school, I would of been homeschooled. A teacher I have is absolutely rude and picks on me even the whole class knows and they won't put me out. I can't wait to go to highschool so I can get out if this nightmare. I would not refer this school to anybody."

    "My daughter was bullied for the majority of the year last year. I went in to the school on numerous occasions. The counselor informed me that things would be done. The bullying continued. I went in again. They told me I needed to calm down. My daughter is seeing a psychiatrist because of this bullying. The girls are still saying nasty comments to my daughter and bullying her. I have been homeschooling my daughter for the beginning of 8th grade; however, she wants to go back to school because she misses her friends. I am debating to send her back to this school because the bullies are still there. Where is the justice? I think those bullies should have been punished or expelled from the school."
