10 Parent Reviews for Frank E. Thompson Middle School

TMS is a warm, inviting school with teachers who will go the extra mile to help students. There is an extensive after school program that offers academic as well as enrichment opportunities for all students. Teachers at this school work very hard to help all students learn.

After researching area districts I was hesitant to send my 6th grade son to this school for our year here while attending the Naval War College. Several months into the school year, I have been more then pleased with the school, administration, teachers and families I've met. The school offers a diverse ...  Read more

Sixth grade was okay, but seventh grade has been the highiight of my time at Thompson Middle School so far.My teachers were my friends, they loved and cared about me.

We had some initial concerns about Thompson based on the 'word-of-mouth' and Test scores we saw on-line compared to other local schools. However, although we are only 3 weeks into the school year, we have been nothing but impressed with the professionalism, caring attitude, and flexibility of the Thompson ...  Read more

I'm not a parent, I'm a student! I'm in 7th grade at TMS. This is the best school. The Staff and teachers are great. The only bad thing is that some teachers are not up to date with us kids. If you have kids please send them to TMS. Most of the kids are really nice here. We all come from the same places ...  Read more
