Core subject teachers are great. Pleasant experience until my child took art with Frank Biggs. Grading system and make up work policies are lacking. Not willing to work with the student. Very disappointed.

I think this school is crazy. I want to see the teachers be nice and not so mean because that's why the kids are so meant to them

Not very impressed with this school. My daughter stated that some teachers were not willing to answer multiple questions re: classwork and were impatient and always yelling. There were a few exceptions. There were teachers that offered assistance and pre-class tutoring if needed. I guess there are always some good and some bad teachers everywhere. I was definately not happy when they decided, against parental objection, to revise the dress code during the summer (after I had already purchased many of their outfits which they were wearing during the summer) so there was no way to contact them for additional information or discussion. Whenever I contacted a teacher or principal over the years my daughter went there, they usually responded fairly quickly.

If only we could move NOW!!! If you love your child and want them to thrive in a safe, fair, respectful and positive atmosphere, DO NOT LET THEM ATTEND TWIN CREEKS MS!!!! My father taught for over 35 years, and TCMS exudes everything he was against! The only thing that thrives at Twin Creeks is DISRESPECT!!! They show favoritism big time! The welfare of your child is not their forte! The administration goes out of their way to bully parents, and if the parents buck them, they take it out on the child! It is so sad!!!!!

Like most middle schools in Spring, Twin Creeks is on the decline. There is no accountability for students or parents. Only teachers are held accountable. We are expected to be parents as well as teachers. When it comes to discipline, there is no support from the principal and only one assistant principal has the nerve to stand up for teachers. Twin Creeks needs stronger leadership, not the current leadership cowering to parents and standing over teachers with whips.Students don't know who the principal is because he is detached from students and the majority of the staff. Unfortunately, too many of the excellent teachers are leaving or being forced out.

I think TCMS is an AMZAZING scool exept for a few things. 1, the teachers there are either really nice, or you want them fired. Also, there are teachers that have actually made students cry. In general the only problem with Twin Creeks is several of the teachers and their lack of communication with parents and no care at all thats students have lives outside of school.

This school is AWESOME!! I love it I am a 7th grade student there and I must say my past two years there have been some of the greatest years of my life. I mean sure occasionally there's a fight or two maybe in the halls, but hey what middle school doesn't have any! Also the teachers are amazing! My favorite is Mrs. Tharp she is the greatest teacher ever. She ALLWAYS keeps us entertained. One of my other favorites is Mr. Feris! You can't get any better teachers than the teachers at Twin Creeks! I hope this review helps!

I like this school alot and I'm in my second year here. Some people think that TCMS doesn't give out alot of homework. In the Tier 4 program for 7th and 8th grade they do! I'm glad it wasn't as much in 6th grade. My favorite teachers I've had here are Math: Mr. Rodrigues(he is hilarious), Language Arts: Mrs. Nefe(she is really nice), Social Studies: Mrs. Humphries(if you have a small and good class she is really nice), Science: Mrs. Starmack(she is really nice). If you are in 6th Grade Tier 4 Language Arts appreciate Mrs. Nefe! Mrs. Perez(7th Tier 4 English) will keep you on your toes when it comes to homework! Electives: Mrs. Tharp(most computer classes like Media Masters) really fun class! Band is also great! Wow what along review! Hahaha!

This school has gone downhill since my oldest daughter attended. Now I have a 6th grader there and the lack of concern for safety is terrible. There is also little or no communication from teachers if your child has a problem with academics. The school is still overcrowded as well and has many discipline problems. We are moving out of the district so that my daughter can attend a better school. This one is way below average in my book.

I go to TCMS and though the school has some problems with students behavior it is the best middle school in the district and has great sports teams. I am kind of glad that we dont have locker though becasue that means we dont have book which means not as much homework. Some teachers give alot of homework. I have one teacher that gives out more homework for a English class then my math teacher does which is unusual. over all this is a pretty good school.

In my opinion, the best MS in Spring ISD. - 1 police officer on campus - because it's a small campus - No lockers so, no books go home. Parents check out books at beginning of year for reference. Teachers use books in class or distribute paper copies of the assignment. - No gang violence witnessed this year, probably because the enrollment is down because of new schools built &, changes to boundaries; - school uses Zangle ParentConnect so you can view your child's grades on a daily basis - school uses paypam so you can put balances on your child's lunch account over the internet via credit card - Many times checks are not accepted for fundraisers so that a loss isn't taken on hot checks written by neighbors, friends & family. This is my son's first year. He is an above average student has has been academically challeged at TCMS.

This school is terrible. One police officer on duty is definitely not enough. There is no security except to protect the staff and equipment. As of March 1, 2008, the school accepts only cash or money orders for lunch, any school activities, etc. They want more $$$ for every single thing. Be sure you check how much that elective class costs before you sign your child's form. plus the elective classes are more like free time for the kids, not too much learning. The fact that checks are no longer accepted shows the quality of the parents whose children attend this school. If you live in this area and can't afford a private school, my suggestion is move to a better location.

Twin Creeks is a great school! My son had reading and spelling problems at his old school and he went from 2 grade levels behind in 6th grade to above grade in 8th grade! Wonderful caring teachers and principals!

I have been disappointed in the quality of some of the teaching. I believe the teachers should be more responsible in their teaching. More contact with the parents would help. A phone call maybe or a note home to be signed. Back in the day there was more communication.

This school is horrible! If you want your kids in a good/safe and caring enviornment find another area or put them in a different school. I took my child out and we're moving and I'm not the only parent who is doing this.

I took my child out of twin creeks after dealing with the lack of concern for her safety. Not only this but I feel all the teachers I've met are either burned out or just so sick of having to deal with the majority of kids that have a I don't give a crap attitude towards them or whatever. We're moving!

Twin Creeks is an average school. I personally do not like the fact that they do not give out homework or send the school books home with the children. It seems to me that the school is more concerned with Taks Testing than with actually teaching our kidws what they need to know it order to make it the world. I find it very unacceptable that my attempts to talk to the teachers and faculty are not responed to in a timely manner.

My daughter is in her second year at TCMS. The academics are tailored to your child such as if your child excels in Math but not Language Arts, your child will be in advanced classes for that class only. She has also enjoyed participating in Band, although it is apparent that there are favorites. She has yet to participate in any sports activities so I cannot comment in that area. Overall the school is great!
