Worst school ever. Most teachers do not care about helping students succeed. Many classes are out of control with no learning going on. They have a huge bullying problem that no one wants to do anything about. Morale amongst teachers and students extremely low. Do not send your child here.

I would not recommend this school for anyone. My son would feel so sick to his stomach every morning. The teachers were the bullies not the other students.

This school is not how it represents itself. The teachers seem miserable on certain teams, they are bullies and their communication is non-existent. I think that a lot of these teachers play favorites and forget what real teachers are supposed to do and stand for. The principal does absolutely nothing to change things or make things better or resolve things. She's more concerned with acting like a celebrity of the school, so these teachers run amuck doing and saying whatever they want. Please don't get me started on the schools grading system.... "Respect for Self"??? That's one of their grading categories. They don't realize that they do extremely more damage than good. My child has a lot of respect for themselves but they get a low grading in this area and makes the child feel awful.... I mean what kind of sick self-esteem game are they playing. They also lock the bathroom doors now and if your child needs to go to the bathroom they are pretty much out of luck. They do this because some of the kids have been trashing the bathrooms so they think the solution is to lock them rather than get to the root of the problem. I'm strongly considering taking my child out of this school actually, it's not much better than the public schools honestly and I am highly disappointed with this school...EXTREMELY! Enter at your own risk.

I am a student at TEMS the school is very nice. In my opinion, I think every city connected with the TEMS interdistrict should have everyone attend.

My son was very fortunate to be selected for TEMS. He is a special needs young man and the staff and teachers have gone above and beyond to help his adjustment from elementary to middle school. Dr. Frank is a great communicator and I always know from her weekly emails what is going on in her class.I have always received a response in a timelt manner from the staff and/or teachers whenever I requested info. I have 3 other children who are anticipating their chance to go there when it is their turn. I am very grateful for this wonderful school and hope others can experience what they have to offer.
