This school only cares about the high achievers. The ones that struggle are left in the wind. The statistics on this school speak for itself. I have one high achiver and one that struggles that attended. The help they give the ones that need it the most is a joke. Administration is too busy playing politics to help the most at risk kids there. We've since moved out of state and it is night and day compared to Tomlin. Thank goodness we got out of Tomlin Middle School. There are a few good teachers that really care there so hopefully you will be lucky and get one of them if your child attends.
The school is very organized.My son is in 6th grade and they do a very good job keeping 6th graders separated from the 7th and 8th graders which is great. The school also keep parents informed and get kids involved in clubs,sports, and community activities.
This school is terrible,The staff terrible,pickup and drop off terrible,bullying is terrible.Some of the teachers have called my kid a tattletale because he came home and told me how in civics they were talking about texas and my kid said well i don't agree with texas laws really with executing mentally impaired individuals,And this terrible excuse for a teacher said "well you better not ever go there" this from a teacher to a student in a class pretty much based on opinion!Really speaks volume about the character of this sad individual.This teachers name is Linda Hiers its unbelievable that a supposed teacher makes remarks like this to a student who she's getting paid to teach over his opinion what exactly is that supposed to be teaching our kids!!!Run from this school.Garbage!!!!!!!!!!
Many supportive faculty and teachers. The school has many migrate students and there is support for all of the children
I was hesitant at first, but I have to say I have been very happy with my child's experience at Tomlin. I highly recommend this school and I am thankful that we made the switch. My child is excited to return in the fall!!
I love Tomlin Middle!!! I went there for my 6th grade year and enjoyed it a lot. The Pep Rallies, lunch, education, and teachers are the best. Now I moved but i still wish i could be there.

This is my 12th year at Tomlin Middle School! I get up EVERY morning and can't wait to get to school. (I know...weird) Tomln is one of the top rated schools in East Hillsborough County! We have close to 1450 students and 125 on staff. You would think that a school of that size would be cold! NOT! Tomlin is a very welcoming school for students,parents and teachers. Our administration is very active and forward thinking! They put the student's first! (As it should be!) They do their best to create a safe learning environment where students can learn to their full potential. Come out and see us during the Strawberry Festival! We have plenty of places to park!
I am a student at tomlin, recently out of 7th grade and when I first started going thre this year, I was afraid that it wouldn't be a very good school. But the teachers are superb are very helpful when you don't understand something. Although some have different teaching styles, they all want to help kids learn; sometimes we just don't realize it.
I love this school! the teachers and the staff are so great... and Tomlin's FCAT scores have gone up. It is a great school to go to!
I am an involved parent at the school and see how students come first with administrators and staff. From my understanding there are over 1500 students that populate the three grade levels. Tomlin does an excellent job at handling the number of students and providing many extra curricular activities. I am completely satisfied with my daughters three years at Tomlin.
I was a student at Tomlin for all three years of my middle school education, except for one nine weeks in the 6th grade. Tomlin was better than any middle school I had seen, it has wonderful teachers and a great staff. It was amazing and I loved it ever so much. If I could go back and re-do my years there, I would again and again and again.
I feel that as a parent of a 6th grader coming into the school, that it has been very confusing. Between the schedule changes, finding the way around the school etc., If feel things were not very organized. Also, the homework load is just more than the students can handle. The students do not get home until 4:45., There is homework in 3 or more classes on most nights. If would be helpful if say english/math were assigned on mon/wed and maybe science/history etc. Be assigned tues/thurs.
