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.
The teachers and staff keep you posted on progress, events, and daily activities. I like being so well informed and in touch with my childs progress.
Lincoln's Twelve Bridges Middle School serves grades 6-8 in the Western Placer Unified School District. It is among the few public middle schools in California to receive a distinguished GreatSchools Rating of 9 out of 10.
Umm..It's ok.Over the past two years it has been extremely fun. The teachers persuade to do your best. I have a handful of teachers that I would recommend. Mrs.Jacobo,Mrs.Arnold,Mrs.Hladun,Mr.Hicks,Mrs.Cambell-Uri, Mrs.Mack andothers
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...
The school is brand new so everything is great, the teachers are really freindly and nice, but the students are sometimes really hard to deal with, the people in other schools that i've been to have much nicer students
The teachers at Twelve Bridges Middle School are all enthusiastic, dedicated, and hardworking. The campus is very safe and secure.
