As a past student of this school, I can honestly say that this school is the worst school of all time. Being bullied is always an issue, and if you don't fit in with the other students, you can expect to be bullied.
As a current student (eighth grade) of Thunder Ridge, I can truly say that this is a great school. The teachers here are extremely passionate about their jobs, and it shows. They offer every core class in an advanced form with the Pre-AP program. I don't dislike very many people at this school. We are a tightly knit community and are very tolerant. Also, they offer many extracurricular programs that can relate to anybody. I love it here at Thunder Ridge, and next year, I will be very prepared for Eaglecrest, and I am ecstatic about that as well. I think you should definitely consider Thunder Ridge as a school, for it can help people of any learning level, and you will never be friend-less in this caring community.
There is way to much bulling going on at this school! The Staff does nothing about it either! Besides punishing the kid that is being bullied! They want to keep their record clean! Instead of dealing with the problem! I know of several kids that were bullied and nothing was done! Instead of dealing with the problem kids they put one kid in a room for protection during lunch and he had to walk with teachers in the halls instead of dealing with the bullies. what kind of school is this???
My daughter is wraping up 8th grade at TRMS, and as a parent I could not be happier with the care and education that she has gotten there. Every teacher she has had has been easy to work with, and excelent in their subject area. She has been given the skills and the confidence to enter high school totally prepared. We are sad to have her leave next year for high school, but thrilled to have our son start in the 6th gade. Great teachers, dedicated administration, and fantastic families. This is the kind of school where you can feel great about sending your kids.
I am going into my 8th grade year at Thunder Ridge and I can't wait for the year to start! There are so many great after-school programs that are fun and many are educational. The teachers are nice and are very focused on getting you where you need to be to succeed. I'm sorry that this will be my last year, I just don't want to leave!
I am currently going into my 8th grade year at Thunder Ridge. The school has been standing for many years, and I am very satisfied by its teachers and other staff members. On one hand, the food could be better, but I definitely recommend it.
I love this school I love the staff and students they are all kind and sweet I think the teacher amazing because they always have a fun entertaining way to Learn.i love the gym teachers and the fun activitys they have for us I am curantly in 6th grade and can't wait for another school year to start!!!!!!!!!! I recommand this school if you want your child to be safe and happy!!!!!!!!!!
I switched to Thunder Ridge from Grand Junction. The people here are a lot nicer and caring than the people at East Middle School (the school I went to) The teachers are really nice and understanding. I love it here!
I am currently a 7th grader at Thunder Ridge and i love it! I switched in the middle of 6th grade from Horizon Middle School because we moved. I didn't want to move but as soon as I met all my teachers and students, I didn't want to leave. The teachers are very helpful and nice. They give you plenty of time to study for a test and give you a packet that has all the answers in it (im talking about science). The students are very nice and there are rarely any rumors and if there are nobody spreads them. I would recommend this school.
Im currently in 8th grade at Thunder Ridge and I am satisfied with the curriculum. Teachers really make an effort to really connect with everyone of their students.
i have gone to Thunder Ridge for a year and that year has been the best year of my life!! the teachers and students are fantastic and i have friends that have been going to this school in 2003 and there hasn't been one bad experience and they all have said that those 3 years have been the best years of their lives. This has been the kindest most wonderful school i will and have experienced. Thanks so much to the wonderful students and staff at Thunder Ridge Middle School. :D
I am a student in the 7th grade. i have so many wonderful memories on the teachers. it just a great school.
The teachers are great and the friends you make there is awsome. Whenever i am on break i always want to go back to see my friends. There is no popular ar not popular group so everyone is treated with respect and everyone has a friend.
Well i am currently a student at Thunder Ridge and I think that some of these comments are crazy! I mean gang violence?!! The teachers are great and will do everything to help you sucseeed in school teachers like Ms. Ryerson a seventh grade science teacher will stay after school with you as will Ms. GrethBark at seventh grade social studies will help you with anything . All i can say is i can't believe this is my last year at this school.
This school is wonderful to go to!!! Every week day is new and full of fun. I always feel safe and i learn so much!!!
I love the principal. Willing to listen to parent concerns and cares about the students.
the comment on august 15 2004 is ridiculous! there are no gangs! i have never even seen a knife there! the school is safe! there are plenty of security guards willing to get involved the school rocks! the teachers rule and the curriculum actually isnt boring! Im an 8 th grader, there arnt even too many bullies, they all get in trouble! but most kids are nice -johnt
I totally disagree with the post from April 1st 08. I have a daughter that is a 6th grader at TRMS and we have had nothing but a positive experience with the administration and teaching staff. My daughter is a minority and has never felt not safe, teachers have always been accessible, via email or telephone call and it is a joy watching her flourish in this environment. This is a great school.
The school is ok. Some of the teachers do not take the time with your kids. Most of them leave early because they are on a so called contract. Some of them just don't care and no matter how much you voice your converns, they just don't get it! The students at Thunder Ridge deserve teachers who care! Students deserve the teacher's undivided attention. Many kids experience fustration, abuse, neglect at home and is looking for a place to go and be educated on how to deal with the burdens at home etc. If you are a minority this is really not the school for your child. It doesn't just take the effort of the principal. The teachers must also get involved and care for the child's well being. Parents get involved, have more conversations with your kids. You'll be surprised at the things they will tell you.
i love the school sooo much it has alot to offer not to mention great teachers
