Three student-led service-based organizations also exist including React, Student Council, and MAD4Kids. The school has a strong performing arts program with outstanding concerts performed by the Orchestra, Chorus, Chorale, Stage Band and Jazz Band.

Teachers

Teachers at Eisenhower Middle School are truly life-long learners who embrace local, state, and national conference opportunities. Many of our staff have been selected as presenters for AMLE, ASCD, Techspo, NSTA, NCSS, NCTE, and many other educational organizations. Our staff uses Twitter as a vehicle for their own personal learning networks as they share and access best practice examples.

Supports

Eisenhower Middle School believes in promoting social equity and inclusion. Each grade level is assigned a guidance counselor/social worker that loops with the grade. A school based psychologist and learning consultant are also on hand to act as consultants for general education teachers as well as the Child Study Team. A TIEE period was added in 2012 to allow all students the time to master standards and each department embraces a Redo and Retake policy to ensure all students are learning.

Health

All Eisenhower students are enrolled in a physical education and health program. Students learn about fitness and life long healthy practices. The department uses Fitnessgram to track individual goals and help students understand healthy habits and practices. Our school also employs a Wellness Committee made up of a diverse group of stakeholders. Staff members are trained in Mental Health First Aid to better understand the challenges students face. During this current school year, a dedicated wellness space will be opened to assist students in self regulation, managing stress, and coping with anxiety.

Parents

Our school is fortunate to have a very supportive and active PTO which helps to provide feedback to school leaders and to fundraise to help support special programs and initiatives. Meetings are held once a month to better inform parents about school happenings. Many forms of communication exist between school and home such as our website, Genesis Parent Portal, IKES, social media, emails, and Google Apps for Education. We also have used book club forums to discuss difficult topics that transcend middle school life.

Facilities

Eisenhower Middle School was built in 1963 as a 7-8 middle school. Several additions and renovations have been completed over the years. Most recently, in 2017, Eisenhower Middle School opened a state of the art STEM design space that is host of our 3D printers, laser cutters, circuitry, and power tools. In 2018, EMS opened a brand new High Definition television studio.

School safety

School safety is paramount at Eisenhower Middle School. Working with a security consultant we have improved security protocols, updated surveillance systems, and limited access of visitors through the development of secured entrance areas.

Technology

Eisenhower Middle School prides itself on offering a robust, comprehensive, and innovative STEM program for all students. In each of the three years of study, students receive multiple course offerings that focus on three pathways of STEM education including engineering, computer science, and video and sound engineering. Beginning in 6th grade, students learn to utilize orthographic sketches and LUMA''s Design Thinking tenets to tackle real world problems. 6th grade course work includes coding, engineering and design, and technology literacy and citizenship. In 7th grade, students are then enrolled in robotics and design, digital prototyping and replicating, and multimedia design. Our 8th grade course work allows for our students'' scaffolded skills to be used in a several culminating experiences including STEM Challenge, Eisenhower Television course, and Music Engineering and Design.
