East Cobb Middle School serves 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.
East Cobb Middle School is located in a community that has served the educational needs of students in the eastern section of the county for over 50 years, opening in 1963.  The same five (5) feeder elementary schools, Brumby, Eastvalley, Powers Ferry, Sedalia Park and Sope Creek, still send their children to East Cobb Middle School.  East Cobb Middle School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and School and was named a Georgia Distinguished Title I School in 2010.  We are fortunate to have a supportive PTSA and School Foundation that support our staff and students by providing teacher grants, student recognition, and several community nights.

 Our student population has changed slightly over the past ten years to include an even more diverse student body.  Our current student demographic percentages include 4.0% Asian, 46.5% Black, 22.4% Hispanic (12% ten years ago), 2.4% Multiracial, and 24.6% White (36% ten years ago).  In addition, ten years ago during the 2003-2004 school year, our economically disadvantaged population was 47% compared to the current 66.5% of our population.  Our Hispanic population has also grown from 12% to 22.4% while the White population has decreased from 36% to 24.6%.
