Great school. Love teacher-parent communication. Teacher grade the tests fast. School loop is very helpful. Band teacher ( Mr. Roberts ) works very hard. Great spirit.

My daughter will be starting at Toby in August. I was moved by the speaches at class selection night. I hope that the school is all it say it is and more. My daughter has her struggles, usually makes friends easily, and I look forward to helping out in anyway I can.

The staff is so unfriendly. Low moral, never a cheerful greeting. Bad first impression. School encourages parents and students to use school loop but does not require all their teachers to use it. Very frustrating for me as a parent. And something that I don't quite understand why would they encourage school loop when they can't get their own teachers to comply. ESP Science teachers. School atmosphere, moral , rules are excellent! Great school. I give principal leadership 2 stars because other parents have mentioned the front office moral and to date nothing has changed. And also for the lack of understanding of getting our teachers to comply to school loop.

I don't know why people think this school is better than EPMS/COHS because it is not EPMS is so much better the staff at TJMS is rude and so are the kids and teachers I did not like this school very well that's why I swiched my kids to EPMS and they like it a lot better

I think that TJMS is a great school. The teachers may seem strict at first, but they actually do care about their students. Though they do give out plenty of homework, it is all to prepare us for the many adventures ahead when we reach highschool. This school is very friendly and it is quite easy to make friends there. The principal is also very nice. She is very caring and strives to make the school as best as she can. TJMS is not just good. It is better than good!

Toby Johnson itself rates well with me, all though the office staff is very unwelcoming, unfriendly, cold, and always seem annoyed that your even in there. I have a Franklin high school student who was there, and now I have a 7th grader entering. So, I am not looking forward for the days I have to interact with the office staff.

We have short but very unpleasant experience with the school staff and leadership. It looks like the level of moral is rally low there. It does not feel like a good environment to be.
