I was really scared about my daughter attending ITMS because I had heard bad things about this school, but I have not had any problems with her or any other children at the school. The only thing I would advise parents is to put their children in the advance classes and enroll them in as many activities to keep them busy.
We just moved into the area 1 year ago. The kids attended Indian Trails Middle with hope and fear of the unknown. For the most part, the teachers were wonderful and supportive. I received great feedback from individual teachers and staff members whenever there was a concern. The kids have made some friends and seem happy at their new school. I cannot thank the Indian Trails teachers and staff enough for making this a positive transition for my kids.
I went to this school a few years ago, and had a horrible time during the three years I was there. My brother was in the gifted program, as was I during my two later years, and he had such a horrible time with rude and arrogant teachers that he asked my parents to be switched out within the first few weeks of school. The staff doesn't respect students for the most part and act very sarcastically, even when respected and greeted kindly. I was in band, and that was one of the only good parts about the entire school.
It is a great school. There are many choices for classes and the teachers are interested in their students and help them be the best they can be. It is very organized for the amount of students that are enrolled. My kids love going to school there.
I have had two children in ITMS , one of which was there in 2006-07 and one currently attending. Since new administration came on board last year, the difference is like night and day. It is a wonderful school, expectations held high in both academics and discipline.
I went to Indian Trails for 6th and 7th grade but then I had to move. Indian Trails ws the best school I have ever been to in my life. The teachers are nice but just like any other school there are a few mean ones too, but only a couple. They have many, many choices for electives, unlike the school I will be attending which only has about 3. The education you will recieve is great I was in all advanced classes but it was great, we learned lots of great and useful information but it was never boring. I will miss Indian Trails and all of my friends so much!!!
This school seems to lack organization. They messed up my son's class and bus schedule; and didn't tell me about it until a week later. And to top it all off, it takes them a week to return phone calls. Why?
Ahmazing. This school is the greatest. The academics are great, the arts are great, AND the band program is out of this world. WE LOVE YOU MRS. MCINTYRE!! (She inspired me to strive to become a band director. :))
The best school my son ever went to! over all they have it all; best teachers, best parent participation. A welcoming and warm environment
I am a student at Indian Trails middle school and this is my 3rd year. I am in the quest program (gifted) and must say, this is a great school. The disciplinary office is top-notch, the dean is perfect and the teachers are good. Unfortunately, the bath rooms are mess! Dirty with graffiti on all the walls and the janitors are not the best. The principal fares average, rarely seen or heard. Still, the quality of education you receive here is good, just as long as you know what teachers to choose. Therefore, I give this a five because it is rated by the state of Florida an 'A+' school. I also give it a five because the teachers are funny and the quest classes actually look and act like gifted classes. This is the school of choice if you live in winter springs.
Good teachers - School is unkept, and seems to have a problem with students items cont. being stolen from lockers. My older son went to same school (7 yrs ago) and they had same issue then.
When I was in the eighth grade, I was enrolled into I.T.M.S., but I was ever so sorry I did. First, the students were so loud and rough. School rules were being violated on a daily basis. Also, the lockers had to be removed. There was a lot of graffiti with bad language in the bathroom stalls. There were fights in the courtyard. I couldn't get along with anybody there my own age. I was talking with adults when I wanted to socialize a little bit. I don't remember doing this at any other school. The teachers taught in a very dry manner and the extracurricular activities were bad. It was a very boring place that I don't recommend to other students.
I have two children one of whom attends I.T.M.S. currently and another who has graduated. The teachers there are so uninspiring.
Two of our 4 children are 'gifted'. We now only have our youngest still there. School leadership is extremely lacking. We pulled both our gifted children completely out of the Quest (gifted)program. The teacher our youngest now has is infinitely more qualified and my child actually likes math now.
This is our third year at Indian Trails. I find the principal weak. Many mediocre teachers are teaching higher levels subjects and turning off our students. Bathrooms are without T.P. and soap! Lack of spirit boosting social activities.
Indian Trails has an excellent gifted (Quest) program. Qualified and concerned teachers, who are interested in student success. Parents are very involved.
The parent involvement at this school in phenomenal, which is so needed at the middle-school level and with this age group of kids.
The gifted program is excellent. Most of the teachers are very qualified and enjoy their jobs. PTA is weak, no school activities (dances etc.,) Adminstrators are helpful and very aware of their student body. Overall an excellent middle school.
We have been very pleased with ITMS. The gifted program is excellent. The band is phenomenal, as is the jazz band. Some after school activities are available. Don't know about them.
