I am greatly displeased by the Tenino middle school and the lack of leadership by the principle and the superintendent. The principle has said that he has '127 students that should be held back this year.' Yet, he still pass them to the next grade. Our Wasl scores show the lack of assistance. We currently
... Read more have one of the worst school in the district. At the school board meeting they act surprised that they have student leaving our district. How about sending a survey home and find out what the parent think? Instead we come to open house and teachers say 'I don't have anything for you but you can sign up for conference.' What about a syllabus? What about expectations? Nothing, no communication. Read less

Discipline is almost nil and that is because the administation is too afraid to do anything because it might upset someone and a levy might fail. In speaking with teachers in the building, I found them to be frustrated about many things and some have just given up. The sports program is adequate, but some of the coaches are from the community and lack skills. They need to get rid of those that can't or don't do their job and not be afraid to discipline.

I am very dissatisfied with this school. Students are at a crucial age and need adults that are approachable and knowledgeable about preteen development. Many of the teachers are not even knowledgeable about the subjects they teach. Teachers yell at students and others refuse to respond to students.

I would rate this school a one. The teachers are lazy and do not have control over the students, The books are old and the teaching is behind time. There is no cafeteria so the students have to eat in the library and can not even visit at lunch. The food is terrible for what you pay for. Their so short
