After reading all these comments, it surprises me this school got a 8 out of ten stars. There is a lot of whining going on by parents blaming the school for something they need to take responsibility for their kids. If you do not know that your kid is failing a class, YOU need to keep up with the grades. ...  Read more

My child attended TMS for the first time this past school year. It was a rough year for us full of lots of struglges adjusting to middle school and the strict requirements.

My son became a struggling student after an accident/illness forced him to miss many days and get behind. Prior to that, he was an honor student his entire life.

Last year I was an 8th grader at TMS. I have been an all A student all my life and take all advanced/honors classes. It is true that the teachers mostly only help the 'smart' kids which is horrible.

The Principal is just awesome!! She is very involved in all aspects of the school.

In my opinion this is a very poor excuse for a school. My child has been on the A honor roll since for all 6 years, has very high SAT scores and yet it seems as if the most important thing to this school is (a) are you following the dress code (b) attendance, because for everyday your child misses, it ...  Read more
