TCMs provides many opportunities for students. The Gifted/Talented program is fantastic. The school is inviting. I always feel welcomed. I volunteer at least 3-4 times a week and have LOVED it. The PTSA does a fantastic job providing different ways for parents to be involved beside providing snacks for a team sport. The grading system is different but that is because of the IB program - once it is explained, it is easier to keep track if my child is having problems with the actual work or not turning something in. Very helpful and insightful to see that she was disorganized but knew the content.
It is a terrible school. Most of the kids are completely disrespectful and a lot of them are racist. They use a stupid grading system that makes no sense. Bullying happens all the time, but I don't see much being done about it. Don't come to this school!
I have had 3 children attend this school in the last 10 years. The change of administration in the past 5 years has made a tremendous improvement overall. Scores are climbing. TCMS is a IB school, as well the home of the Gifted/Talented program for southern Fayette Co. Parent involvement has improved, but because so many parents now work full-time, that has kept it from a 5-star rating.
