TMS is an impressive school community despite being large. Since coming here to teach, I have noticed progress in leadership and school values over the years. Departments, such as music and drama are standouts in the state. Most importantly, the students are a good bunch.
Tms is a great school. It gets bad reviews, but those are always from people who haven't gone there . I am a 7th grader at the school and have really enjoyed my experience so far. Not only do the teachers help me as well as other students display a better understanding of middle school concepts, such as early alegbra, they make the learning interesting as well. At Tms, you learn how to apply your learning to every day experiences and have fun in the process. Most students at Torrington Middle School are kind and welcoming also. My advise to any new student at the school, whether you are an incoming sixth grader or you are moving to the city from somewhere else, is to keep your head held high and be confident. Torrington Middle School is great, but you just have to let it show you that it is. Good Luck! I hope to see you at Torrington Middle School!!!!!!
Wonderful, diverse school with caring staff. Students are very motivated as demonstrated by their perseverance to raise money to bring Tina Meier to address the school on Cyberbullying. I feel lucky to work there and with these children.
This is my son's 1st year at TMS. I had major concerns since he was bullyied in grade school. My son has always struggled and received extra help but always was a B student. Since he has been going to TMS, I have not had one problem, the teachers are all wonderful and my son just got his report card and rec'd 4 A's and 2-B's. He loves the school and the teachers are very encouraging with him. My experience so far has been excelent. (I do aggree though that not enough information comes home about extra cirriculum activies)
Tms has been has been a nightmare,teachers don't listen to kids issues/problems.I'd rather they used some of the millions on better teachers & teach compassion then on a new school. I'd rather pay for a private school for 6-8th grades..Sorry TMS you failed the grade in my book.
