Tarpon Springs Middle School 5

We moved to Tarpon Springs specifically to attend Pinellas County Schools and our neighborhood schools, TSMS and next year, TSHS. We are not disappointed! TSMS has the rigorous coursework available to those who need it, namely honors and advanced classes in Mathematics, Science, History, English, and Spanish. The teachers have been amazing to work with, as well as the administration and Guidance Counselors. Extra help is also available free of charge! Thank you TSMS for such a positive experience in public schools and in middle school!

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.
