10 Parent Reviews for Takoma Park Middle School

To be honest (and as speaking as a student) the experience the school offers is great if you're in the magnet. If you're not, it's a normal school.

Extracurricular activities are very nice, however, there are many less than perfect teachers, and some of the administrators aren't that great at fair discipline.

Takoma Park Middle School is a rigorous, but highly integrated and diverse middle school. It is an example of the great education a public school can provide when there is community support and concerned parents and sufficient resources to get quality facilities and staff. I could afford to put my ...  Read more
