This school is so bad, my kid is unable to make friends nor fit in. The rules are incredibly stupid and restricting. I mean come on, let the kids have SOME freedom! Some teachers make my child feel so idiotic and outcasted from the other students, while others have terrible attitudes! Tinton Falls Middle School is not the safest environment for our growing, developing kids and something better should be done! Hopefully things will change soon, but we will not be recommending this school to any incoming elementary students.

I feel this schools faculty is not enthusiastic and in tune with their students, starting with a principal, who I feel is not involved enough. They do not put enough thought into the individual child. Not looking at placement for social and educational reasons, putting my child into an environment that was not helpful at all, educationally and socially. I feel they really don't have it together, collectively and I am now trying to scramble to find another school to attend for 8th grade. Probably having to spend money out of pocket, more then the high taxes we spend now. Hopefully we can go somewhere that will help correct the damage that was done here. Unless you are ready to let your child "Go with the flow", I would stay away from this school.

I am a previous student of Tinton Falls Middle School. In 8th grade, we were assembled in the cafeteria and the vice principal told us over the microphone that we shouldn't think we're the best students in the school just because we were the oldest. I remember her telling us, "Guess what? Next year when you go to high school, you're going to be BABIES again!" Her whole speech was along those lines. I felt very demoralized and wanted to go home. When I was being bullied, the principal, VP, and guidance counselor told my mom I was imagining things and they were just going to put a band-aid over the situation rather than address it. I became severely depressed and suicidal, and I had to be home-schooled as a direct result of the continued bullying. I highly recommend keeping your children AWAY from this school!

I go to this school and i absolutely love it! Great teachers, fun activities, and many, many, many friends that you will have for a lifetime! This school is definitely one of the best.

Has some good staff who teach well, and who care about kids. On the other hand, social issues are not addressed. Some teachers contribute to the embarassment that some students face because of their learning differences.

While some of the teachers were enjoyable to speak with and taught the students well, there was a lack of intervention and resolution when it came to the students' problems. The authority figures did not seem to listen to the students when they spoke about a situation they were experiencing, and social problems were not addressed.
