North Tapps Middle School is the most amazing school because the people in charge insist on respect and good behavior from students, as well as outstanding scholastic's. Since our district is very small, we do not have a high school. Therefore, halfway through the school year, the 4 neighboring High Schools come to our school to "encourage" our students to choose "their" particular school. Our students academic scores combined with the arts and sports create a very desirable group. Being a parent of 2 children who have attended North Tapps Middle School, I thank Heaven above that we were fortunate enough to be involved with such a great group of Administrators and Educators.

So glad we're out of there ... peerless academics, toxic snobbery - high price to pay for a great education

I graduated from here a few years ago. This school was great. The teachers were prepared, smart, and funny. The sports teams were good. Our band was superior. I loved how hard the teachers pushed us. It really showed to me how hard this school was when I got to high school and we had to take advanced classes to be in our level of education. It had a very high expectation of the kids. The admininstation is good. I loved this school. Great students, great school. Bring your kids here. Good school. Loved it. (: -NTMS GRAD '08

I currently go to North Tapps, i have been in this district since i was in 3rd grade. We love it! I could tell that the 3rd graders in my new class were a year or so ahead of my old school (Graham Elementary School). I caught up because of my awesome teachers cooperation. They really helped me become a great student and i eventually became head of the class. I love Dieringer School District. There is no better place to grow up. I wish i would have gone here since kindergarten! They have every sport you could imagine also. They recently remodeled the schools. They look just great and brand new. The whole staff is loving and nuturing. If you are unsure of what school district to raise your kids in.. Choose Dieringer because it is the best you can get.

Great school overall. Use of technology is well incorporated and the science program really challenges the students. Raise in the WASL scores is proof of that! Some academic afterschool programs, but there could be more.

Program offerings for every type of student. The principal seems to believe the best about every kid and is really approachable. Some teachers are better than ever. I'm less than impressed with the science department. English dpepartment is very strong.

I've had two children in the Dieringer School District for 8 years now, and it is awesome. It's the closest you'll ever come to a private education in terms of quality. The staff at North Tapps especially REALLY truly care about the kids and are committed to their success. The greatest place in the NW to raise your kids!
