I'm in 6th grade and I think this school is awesome! The music programs are awesome! The gifted and advanced programs are good. The Halls can get a little crowded but that's just school.

Not a great school! They have issues with drugs, bullying and some below average teachers who truly hate what they're doing and should find other jobs.

I think TSMS is a great school. These are fine educators that do a great job academically and with discipline. If the child wants to learn there is opportunity to do so. The gifted and music programs are great.

I had three children attend Tarpon Middle and they all graduated on the Principal's list. They were in the Gifted program and Advanced classes. They made many friends from many backgrounds. They were enlightened by the real world. Tarpon Middle is a great school that supports a child's ability to succeed. Many parents get caught up in a school's location, however, now that my children are in highly rated high school, the same concerns parents have regarding middle school are a reality in high school as well.

This school really gave my son all the help and extra curriculam he needed, every school has its trouble no matter what some parents need to understand that not any school is perfect . You can;t run away from your problems . But other than that we enjoyed the three years he went to TSMS.

My son is going in to eighth grade in the fall and has spent the last two years at TSMS. Our experience with TSMS has been very good so far, the teaching staff is exceptional. Teachers are caring and quick to get in touch with parents should a problem arise. My son's grades started to slip and his teachers were on it, I was in constant contact with them and we worked together to help him rebound. This school is much better than what has been posted earlier, while I cannot speak to the access to special needs students, I can vouch for students like my son who benefit greatly from the wonderful teachers we are blessed to have at this school!

Way to many kids for one school, to much trouble! Alot of fights!! Your kid is just a number and they will get pushed a side. there's to many kids for the teachers to be able to give your child the help they may need. I'm moving my son to another school!!!

The school is old but the administrators are all very helpful and patient. Even while being swamped with parents and children lining up outside their offices every admistrator was patient and very helpful. They are doing the best they can with the amount of staff they have. Since we are new to the school we cant comment on teachers yet. But I am very impressed with the staff so far.
