Great administration, great teachers! In response to the previous review about teachers leaving, this has to do with budget cuts that the school has no control over. If this upsets you, contact the Pender County Board of Education and your politicians and let your voice be heard. The principal and his ...  Read more

Very disappointed. The school is rated a 9 but we have had so many problems. Teachers coming & going, quitting,being fired. The school is very disorganized. There are too many bulling issues and they are not being dealt with in an appropriate manner.

My daughter just started 9th grade high school. Her 3 years at TMS were great. The last 2 years were the best. The teachers stayed on target and were always very informative and the principal was awesome. He always had time for meeting and phone calls. Keep up the good work

Last year, because of the influx of new students, my son was transferred to a new language arts class. Now, again, this year, because of further enrollment, my son is again being transferred around to meet the staffing ratio. I think that the principal should take a closer look at who he is moving ...  Read more

My son is now in the 7th grade at TMS. He has wonderful highly qualified teachers. They work very hard to give the students an excellent education even with many obstacles. The county does not give the schools enough money to get enough teachers. Therefore the class sizes are very large. Most are ...  Read more
