We love this school! My 2 kids have been at the school the past 5 years and we are sad that next year will be our last at TMES as both kids will be at Ridgeview Middle School in 2011-12. Please disregard the 1 bad rating from several years ago as that was a DIFFERENT school under the old, horrible principal. ...  Read more

The principal is engaging and enthusiastic. Safety does not seem to be a concern any longer. The new gym looks great and new playground equipment is coming soon. Two of the 3rd grade teachers are pregnant which will make continuity for the kids a challenge this year.

My daughter is a 1st year 1st grader at this school. From the very beginning, open school night, to the fundraisers, I have been very impressed.
