I loved this school with all my heart. BEST middle school ever. I recommend this school to everyone, definitely a leader Middle School. All the Middle Schools/ Jr. High's should follow the way TBMS does things. GREAT School. - Proud Alumni
I have spent my entire Middle School career at TBMS, and as my eighth grade year comes to a close, I realize how great of a school this truly is. The Vice Principal, Mr. Woods, is single-handedly the coolest administrator of any school I've ever heard of. As he makes his rounds 'round campus, he high-fives all the students and brightens the place up. I know every one of the teachers here, and I have to say that 9/10 of them are not only excellent teachers, but kind, understanding people as well. They also have a good female-to-male staff ratio. In most schools you'll see either too many men, or too many women staff members. The students here are also very accepting and fun to be with; they make me enjoy going to school. Most of all, TBMS has one of the best Music Programs that a public school has to offer! The Music Teacher here IS my favorite teacher of all time, and he is an amazing musician as he has been the Band-Director here for the entirety of its existence. You may be skeptical, but I have learned numerous life-lessons and skills from Mr. Brown that will me make my life easier. All-in-all, this is the best possible middle school that you could hope to go to.
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.
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!
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.
