So yea, i go to this school (8th grade booyaa) and i love it! the staff are always so happy and cheerful. I moved here from nyc and hated it. Now it's like my second home. I love all of my teachers. Though i must admit, social studies we learn nothing basically and i don't get why they separate 'reading' and 'language arts' in new york, we call it english! it's a pretty good school, gonna miss it next year if i go to skyline or ajhs. I can't believe the school is closing down! waaaa
Thunder Mountain Middle School School is the best school that I've been to. I have been going here since 6th grade. Right now I am in 7th grade. The school has really fun teachers. Some teacher also have tutoring after school for students that need extra help they also have treage(extra) class for students that are falling behind or failing in their math class.They have after school activities and band so personaly I think that this is the best school that I have ever been to.
This is the first year that my child has loved going to school and is excelling. The teachers are extremely helpful. The school is night and day from where we came from.
This school is a very good school. All the teachers are vrey nice. I've been going here for 3 years and i love it! We learn a lot of good things. Don't be hatin.
Staff really care about the students. Absolutely a wonderful learning atmospher.
I have recently moved here from ny and I am so impressed with this school
Social studies and science are full year courses and PE is offered either by quarter or by full year. Sports are open to everyone and everyone is encouraged/allowed to participate pretty equally. There seems to be a strong Parent/Teacher Organization that has hosted informative speakers and/or activities each month. I have not heard of any issues with violence, fighting, or drugs/alcohol within the school.
The academic curriculum is greatly lacking in social studies, science and foreign language. There are no foreign language classes. Science and social studies alternate as half-year programs. Yet, they have a full year of phys. ed. every day. After school activities are virtually non-existent except for sports. The Art Club is selective and very few are selected. Many of the teachers lack the skills required to teach their classes.
I loved having my daughter at TMMS. She had attended Mesa and Gilbert schools prior to 6th grade and her experience with this school was a safe, fun, challenging, an awesome experience in and outside the classroom.
I feel that TMMS is a very good school. My daughter has enjoyed her 3 yrs there. We've had a couple of conflict with teachers but their email system works great & they respond quickly. When the principal has had to be involved, she's worked things out quickly & fairly for both my daughter & the teacher. I was a bit disappointed that soccer was cancelled the last 2 years & that tennis was cancelled this year due to budget contraints. I feel it's important for children at this age to keep active. They did offer other sports during the timeframe that soccer or tennis would have been played but my daughter wasn't interested in the other sport. My daughter enjoys the gifted program (CAMP) which meets 2 to 3 times per week during CAR class. TMMS has a lot to offer!
While I'm not familar with all the teachers at TMMS, I would have to say that I have been very impressed with my son's teachers. They care about the students. Thunder Mountain is a VERY good school.
