Okay so I go here and honestly I read some of the reviews and laughed especially at the one that said kid cuss a lot. Do you seriously think you can find a middle school where no one cusses. Ya there is some bullying but the teachers do take care of it whether they like you or not the only time they don't help you with a bulling problem is if you don't tell them! The teachers here are great they are funny, nice, encouraging but still have a strict side so you don't get out of control. And the office staff is so nice and help with a lot. It's a really good school but the only thing I don't like is some things on the dress code like covering shoulders and that they don't teach Spanish like granite oaks and a lot of other schools do.

As a previous student I am pleased with the academics but the school has major problems with bullying, no one is doing anything about it. The vice principle and the teachers won't care if you get bullied unless they like you. If they bearly know you they won't listen to what you have to say

My children had a terrible experience at this school. Bullying is tolerated. The vice-principal even thought some of the bullying was funny. When I said I didn't share his sentiment, he said we would just have to disagree.

TBMS dysfunctional communication at this school. There is no pro-active approach to discipline/maintaining order at the school.

Very pleased with TBMS... my son is thriving here- many great, caring teachers who make learning fun. Administration is strong and they take a pro-active approach to discipline/maintaining order at the school. Beautiful state-of-the-art facilities, as well.

I am very happy with this school, and I am extremely picky. The majority of the teachers have been excellent. Sure, there are always a few bad apples, but it only teaches our kids to deal with High School, College and less than desirable work situations. It's a great public school option!

they have good teachers, and good drills. the campus is pretty much really safe, and there is not a time when somebody isn't there to help you with an emergency.

Twelve Bridges has new and very nice facilities, but because of it's young history, events aren't established that well yet. On the bright side the teachers and the leadership class work extremely hard to get traditions started and bring fun activities to the school. This middle school has great testing scores and most of the teachers are experienced and interactive with thier students. My favorite teachers are Mrs. Long, Ms. Campbell, and Mr. Gonzales. The teacher communication really depends on the teacher.

I completely agree with the dysfunctional communication at this school. I have been trying for 2 months to communicate with my child's teachers. I email over and over again and get genaric answers to my concerns. These teachers do not work on helping a child that needs extra help. I have asked repeatedly to have him stay in at lunch or come before or after school for extra help. I have asked about study groups. None of these are an option at this school. I do as much as I can at home but my child is in the school's care 7 hours a day 5 days a week. They need to take some responsibility for educating the children in their care. The principal is not much help either. We are moving next summer and I can't wait to get into another school. Currently searching for a new school.

I have had some problems communicating with my child's teachers. No one is willing to address my concerns and it is very frustrating. They want everything to be great but they are not stepping up. The teachers do not keep up with the teacher ease grades and when you try to find out what is going on you never hear from any one. I will be glad when we are gone from this school.

This is our 3rd year at TBMS. We love it! The teachers have really stepped up the parent teacher communication. Parents receive emails on a regular basis. Mr. Woods is awesome! I don't think they could have a better vice principal. Parents are involved, teachers take the students academics serious. They are constantly doing things to improve the school in it's entire 3 years of existence through academics,communication, school functions and activities! They do not tolerate drugs or bad behavior. I have not heard of or witness any drug or bullying problems. Pretty good kids! My husband and I are very pleased to have our 3 children at TBMS!!

I go to Twelve Bridges Middle School (TBMS), and it is ok. The staff and administrators don't do a very good job of disinplening people. A lot of the kids around campus cuss and use innappropriate language. A couple of the teachers are really bad. Only two come to mind...
