Thomas MacLaren School provides and education that is not only rigorous, but is beautiful. It is for all students, not only those identified as gifted. The depth of the common (to all students) curriculum combined with the quality of the staff makes Thomas MacLaren School a very special place to learn. It is wonderful that our children do not need to chose between a rich life in the arts and high math and science courses. They get it all! We are completing our 3rd year at MacLaren and feel very blessed to have found it.
This school continues to surpass our greatest hopes for our children's education. The teachers care about the students on a very individual basis and make the necessary adjustments to meet the learning styles of every child. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!!!!
We love this school and wouldn't send our children anywhere else. Our 7th and 8th grade students are both challenged academically and happy going to school. There is no bullying and the class sizes are small. The teachers are fun and really know their subjects. The principal and staff respond quickly to any questions or problems and provide tutoring or challenge work as needed. I fully expect that my children will attend a top notch University after mastering the curriculum at this middle/high school.
Because of its high academic standards for all its students, and small class size, I regard Thomas MacLaren School as the finest my 9th and 10th grade children have ever attended. They do not streamline some into lower categories, and for that I am thankful and appreciative. This school gives every student there the opportunity to achieve their highest potential. I give MacLaren the top possible rating.
This school has excellent teachers, strong principal/school leadership, small classes, and high academic standards for all students.
