Middle school sucks. You have to be an attentive active parent to produce a good student or you could use a Christian or cyber charter school until the high school grades. We transferred our son onto the high where we were Very very pleased. I kept him out of the middle school though. We have a couple sets of fermi ends whose students are doing famously in the middle school but they are proactive, participating parents who haven't left teaching solely up to the middle school faculty. Any school could have the same issues. It has much to do with lazy parenting and Puberty related issues. The High School is terrific though.
Nothing special. The students are awful, the administration is inexperienced or can't connect with the students. The teachers are the best part, and even they can't control the students enough for them to learn properly.
Horrible school. This is not the school you want your kids to attend The teachers are aweful and cannot teach at all.
This school is terrible and they have a severe bully problem that needs to be addressed its so bad we moved out of the distract. The teachers also say that when you report it if i didnt see it im not gonna do anything about it be warned when you send your kid here.
We have had nothing but great experiences with this school! The teachers my son has had are excellent. They take a very individualized approach, making sure the kids who need extra help get it, while still challenging those that are ahead of the curve. I also don't get the sense that they are test-obsessed like I hear other parents at other schools complain of. In fact, in 5th and 6th grades, they do not even get letter grades. Their report cards are more of a dashboard of where they are at on a multitude of skills within each subject--way more helpful than traditional grades and very innovative! We love this school!
Some of the earlier reviews for a couple years ago are untrue. Twin Valley has given my children a superb education. My children are learning so much and I am very pleased. Yes, there is not a lot of homework, but studies have show that you do not need homework to be successful. There is a wide variety of clubs and activities. The right size school: not too big not too small. For the parents worrying if their child who is entering 5th grade will be nervous around 8th graders, don't worry. The district has done a great job on making sure your student will not be around the upper classmen.
The middle school is a great place for our kids to gather the information they need to go onto the high school. They get to meet all of the children from all 3 elementary schools.
TVMS give the students the tools to be success while in middle school and is a great stepping stone to move up into the high school
We love TVMS because of the caring teachers! The teachers and faculty have been the most supportive to help my children succeed!
Our school is not only academically fantastic, but they are very diligent about maintaining high behavioral standards as well!
The teachers and Dr. Lloyd have been both professional and caring to all of our children.
Great District with great staff and mission towards quality education.
The principal has really made great changes in standards, accountability and behaviors at the middle school.
purposely moved into the school district 6 years ago, 3 kids later, no regrets and would highly recommend the district.
I love that the fifth graders have gym every day. This helps replace the recess they've lost moving from the elementary school. My son has really enjoyed his first year at the middle school. He is being challenged in all of his classes and looks forward to those challenges. I don't know if it's just how middle school is, but I don't feel as connected to the school as in the elementary school. There aren't as many opportunities for parents to be involved, although we are told differently.
The committed and caring teachers who go the extra mile for our children, this is what makes Twin Valley rise above other districts. Our excellent music and art program and having Dr. Lloyd as one of our Principals. She has made a very positive difference for our children. We would like to see the bar raised for academic standards which will prepare students for high school and homework. The administration seems to be moving in the right direction but very slowly.
Caring, passionate administration that truly wants the best for every child.
