All I can say is positive things about this school. All the staff there are nice from the secretaries and administration to the regular teachers and janitors. They have a lot of school events like dances, band concerts, award ceremonies, art shows, plays, and talent shows. And yes, there is some bullying, but aren't most schools gonna have that wherever you go? They have a bunch of clubs that you can join along with their sports like soccer, cross-country, drama, art, etc. All the teachers I had were so nice and a lot of them put in so much extra work you wouldn't believe! I also made all my best friends here. This school is my favorite(: -former student

LOVE Mr. Harris, Mr. Humphreys, Mr. DeMoss, Mrs. Goolsby. I wish I could warn about the bad! Mr. VonMaxey is a good teacher as well but he tends to favor athletic students and the kids know it.

The school is run like a police state, well possibly one in a 3rd world country. The administration takes the line that the student is always wrong and the teachers run roughshod over parents to make themselves look good. There are some exceptions but at the top HUGE gaps, and reported incidents are ignored or denounced. The only care taken is inflating the FCAT scores at the risk of all other meaningful instruction.

The teachers are great, they really care about the students and the class sizes are small. There is a fair amount of time between classes. And the multi-building set up stops crowding in the halls. Except for the 500 Building where sometimes it can be hard to get in and out of. I like the fact that for the last ten minutes of lunch, if you want you can go to the courtyard and to your locker so you can see friends you don't have any classes with. Also, if you want you can wait in the gym after school instead of waiting for your bus in the boiling sun. The only downside is that teachers have to walk to students to lunch.

Two of my children have attended Tavares Middle School. I have been very happy with the teachers, administration and staff. I especially like the amount of communication that goes on between the teachers and parents. I always know what is going on at the school and they let me know when there are areas for concern. I also enjoy the many performances for parents during the year. They have band concerts, awards presentations and sports events. I feel valued as a parent and included in their planning.
