Tchefuncte Middle (TMS) is an amazing school. My child enrolled after previously attending a private school in Jefferson Parish. I've been impressed with TMS and am thrilled I got my child into such a positive environment for learning. After 3 years at TMS, my child is now moving on, but he loved TMS and the school exceeded expectations every year. Truly a great school.

This school is filled with bullies and has poor playground supervision. PE is dangerous with kids often getting serious injuries that could be avoided. To be fair some of the teachers are very good but the overcrowding makes it difficult. This school is in need of serious overhaul, which includes smaller class sizes and the hiring of more teachers in my opinion.

We have one daughter at TMS. This school is an amazing public school. Teachers are very involved, classes are a manageable size, and students are encouraged to do their best. I volunteer in the classroom and I have to say that there is only one factor that leads to a child failing in this school: Poor Parenting. While most kids have a great deal of support, a few in my daughter's classroom were in families that "left it to the school" and refused to help their child in any way. Even so, the school makes great efforts to aid every child. Wonderful activities, programs, band, etc.

I just moved to this area from Atlanta and enrolled two of my children at Tchefuncte. My experiences so far with the administration, teachers and office staff have been amazing. Teachers are very involved and communication with them is very positive and appreciated. I love the school system here!

Tcefuncte Middle School is an outstanding school. The teachers are dedicated and the administration is outstanding. It is by far the best middle school in the parish.

Just like it's counterpart next door, Pontchartrain Elementary, Tchefuncte Middle is a gem ... especially now with new Principal Norsworthy, who 'ran the show' as vice principal at Pontchartrain for almost the last decade and whose own children attended Tchefuncte. The teachers are incredibly compassionate and caring, the academics are stimulating and interesting for my 5th grader (and me!). Parent involvement is superb and welcomed --- lots of really educated moms doing a lot of really good work! I think the 'one-star' posting below was a reflection of perhaps an overwhelmed teacher post-Katrina when every school (and business and road) was having difficulty dealing with the sudden over-population on the northshore. Now into the fall of 2007, things have definitely improved and are back to normal. Tchefuncte is more like a private school in almost all aspects (except for tuition!) ... visit and you'll see for yourself.

These schools are great, and everyone wants to come to these schools.

TMS used to be a wonderful school. But this past year things have just gotten out of control. The teachers cannot control the students, and at the present time the principal's position is still open. My child spent more time in class listening to his teacher correct other students than he did learning. It is really a shame that our schools have become so overpopulated & laid back. This used to be a great school.

Living all over the country we have experienced numerous schools. Tchefuncte is by far the singularly best school my children have ever attended.

We loved this school. My girls were well prepared at Pontchartrain and Tchefuncte met all expectations. We moved due to Katrina and we miss our schools. Stay in this district if moving to Mandeville
