James P Timilty Middle School 1

This school is absolutly terrible! I am currently a student here in 7th grade and was there in 6th grade to! Still miserable and hoping to change schools. There are fights practically everyday and lots of drama! You have to get escorts just to go to the bathroom right around the corner and even to the nurse. Lots of teachers are rude and ignorant and blame you for stuff you don't even do! If your thinking about bringing your child to this school think twice! Plus if you still choose for your student to go to that school and s/he is in big blue family sixth grade good luck. Also if your child may be in green family 7th grade good luck. Lastly, if your child is in Maroon family good luck. Also, the teachers may ask if you want your child to be in AVID ( Advancement Via Indiviual Determination ) i would say no. Unless your child is well organized then maybe you can put it in consideration. Avid is basically you spending money on unessicary junk. You have to have a 3" Binder and are required to do certain things that don't even make sense. At this school they be money hungry. They charge you $2.50 just for a bottle water and even make you late for lunch were you eat for about 5-20 min.

I was a former student (graduated 2 years ago) who went through all three miserable years at this horrible school; I am currently attending a private school, which Timilty inadequately prepared me for. The reason why there are no acceptable reviews for this correctly labeled 2/10 school is because there is almost no involved AT ALL: parent and student. The teachers, the most important part of a child's education experience here at Timilty are barely qualified to run a class. Too many times have I witnessed teachers not able to handle the rowdiness of the (i shudder to say) "students". Do not put any hope in the adults who run this place as I would like to call the various rules inefficiently made are A JOKE. You determine what it means when the principal is best known for her cooking on open houses. Kudos for researching!

This school is a presidential award winning school. It boasts an energetic principal whose number one priority is a superior education for her students in an urban setting. It has a low teacher turnover, a challenging curriculum, taught by caring teachers, who encourage each child to be all that they can be. Discipline problems are few and are dealt with immediately. This school also has an active parent council that works closely with school administration. It's students are ussaly able to go on to high school with great success.
