TMS is it awesome beautiful middle school! My daughters going there right now for six grade she loves all the teachers especially Mrs.Drazba, Ms.Glismann and Ms.Thomas. The outdoor campus is beautiful and very very nice Deans and principals and teachers. At The end of every quarter there is a schedule change for some of the same kids that go there. There is also something called super shark. It's where a teacher selects a student from their class or classes they then right about them and they nominate them for super shark,super shark is something that kids show excellent effort and they always are thriving to learn more!! If you want to enroll your kid in a middle school pick Terkanian middle school!!
TMS is a really great public school. i went there for my 6th and 8th grade year, and i loved it. You definitely feel more independent with how big the school is and the various teacher you have. You get recognized for all you've achieved with "Straight A" luncheon's at the end of every quarter. Although, certain teachers that i have had in the past lack responsibility and show a careless attitude when it comes to grades, but those are only CERTAIN teachers. Admin is nice, beautiful outdoor campus. I'd recommend this school to anyone with a child entering into middle school.
My son was a sixth grader this year at Tarkanian. I found the vast majority of his teachers to be competent, caring and committed to the students. His math, science, PE and especially BAND teacher were very strong. The sixth grade counselor and the librarian were also very supportive. The dean is STRICT but I like that.....there is no tolerance for knuckleheads. We came from an exclusive private school but I will say, I think this school offers a good educational opportunity and a "real world" environment.
This school is a joke. Some of the teachers there are alright, but some others really shouldn't be even teaching. They don't offer anything extra after school besides dance, cheerleading, and basketball. We can't wait to get our 4.0 student out of this school!
This is the worst school I've ever seen! They allow kids to be bullied. Teachers Pick and choose the students they send to the dean for dress code violations. This place should be shut down. Children should not be put in the situations!
The school has every right to search any students locker / back pack / purse / sachel if they believe that the student has anything in her / his possession that is illegal / immoral / poronographic or NOT in the interests of school (drawings that the student wastes class time looking at over and over. Students should NOT bring items to school that don't fit into the learning process...i.e. games / toys / photographs. Although cell phones are allowed many students do texting when the teacher isn't looking...so the student is NOT learning. This School is fantastic.
