When a child given detention, they are allowed to tell their side of the story to have it revoked. Sometimes a teacher can't see everything.

Teachers and staff are thoughtful, will reach out when expectations not being met, and work hard to help each child to know their potential.

Develops character: Agree

As far as people who are not parents can develop honesty, integrity, and justice in students this school does. In all their interactions with the students the staff, teachers, and leadership give respect, honesty and justice and expect the same. They not only expect but require it in return. Challenging and encouraging those students who fall short.




- a
The Leadership, teachers, staff, students, and parents are a collection of folks which seek to live the motto of the school in their very lives everyday. To Know Truth, Create Beauty and Practice Goodness

Thomas MacLaren is a fantastic school. Our kids come home happy and exciting about learning.

Thomas MacLaren School has raised the bar for excellence in education. As a student at TMS for three years our daughter has learned how to think deeply and critically about subject matter and communicate her thoughts effectively through written and oral means. The staff is truly passionate about their academic fields which inevitably rubs off on the students. Results are not grade or even test focused, but rather the depth of knowledge and sense of wonder the student has gained in a content area. We could not be more pleased with this school.




- a
The school challenges my children to think outside the box. They read the classic literature that has become absent in most curriculums today. They are doing algebra in 8th grade and moving into the higher maths the first year of high school. The school is known for its exceptional music program, although I do think there is value in more than just strings and classic music. But it's a great jumping off point into other genres, giving the students a firm grasp of music theory and an appreciation for where music comes from and how it has changed through time. The staff is caring and student focused, seeing each child as whole.



- a
We are lucky to have our children in a school that is socially, academically, and mentally nurturing. The best part is our children feel that passion and devotion everyday as well. It is clear to us that sending our children to MacLaren is one of the best decisions we have made to benefit their futures.
