I am a newcomer at C.T. because I am a sixth grader. So far, I think that C.T. is a wonderful school! The teachers are so nice there, well at least the Magnet teachers are. I am not so sure about the regular ed teachers, as I do not know them. Magnet is a great program and it helps you learn at a faster pace, but you remember what you learned. The kids in the Magnet program do not goof off and they are always on task. GO BULLDOGS! [:

I'm a current student at CTMS. It's okay. I'm a magnet student too, and I have to agree with the review posted on August 4th. I think too many of the students are caught up in being cool rather than focusing on schoolwork.

I am a former student from CT(now to become a tenth grader) and I have to it was alright. The eduation and stuff was pretty good but I agree with the comment below mine: The kids are not all that nice at some points. There are racial problems also if you are not part of the race with the most people. My friend once told me he saw some kids doing drugs in the bathroom. But that is not that common. People didn't really bother me because I am tall and usually have a serious face. But for others, they are not that lucky.

I'm a parent of a magnet student and given the choice I wouldn't send my daughter anywhere but Columbus Tustin. There's a great group of teachers and good parental involvement.

Columbus Tustin is a good school with lots more potential. Like most schools there are challenges. CT has proven to challenge and support my child through the 'Magnet' program. Now in high school, she learned such great study habits at CT, she is not stressed out over her honors classes at all. My son is starting at CT, and with a new principal we are excited about a new year. All schools have challenges. If you don't like what you see or hear, maybe you should try changing it before you abandon it. And, for the parent that had nothing good to say about CT, too bad you couldn't explain what it is about the school you don't like. Some of us would've liked to answer you.

I'm a student at C.T going into eighth grade and I think my school is 'O.K.' It's got a great Physical Education program with great P.E teachers. As far as academics is concerned, I would say they are average. That is speaking for the kids not in the 'Magnet Program.' The 'Magnet Program' is very good and a lot of smart people are in it. The seventh grade honors core teacher is tough but a good teacher. The eighth grade honors core teacher is really cool. O.K, that's it. GO CT!

I'm very glad my two girls went to CT for middle school. Mr. O'D, the principal, is bringing lots of new ideas to the campus. CT has a wonderful Band/Orchestra program as well as the Science and Math Magnet which is headed up by the TUSD 2003 district teacher of the year, Monica Azimioara.
