i heard this school is fantastic cause the teachers actually get to know the student and the teachers always help before and after school,but the thing about being swept is not right cause if students get there late is cause they got in trouble or cause there classes are sometimes across campas.but sometimes some students are sich and they need extra time in between classes because some students are sick but they don't want to tell any body i think that the school should reconsider that rule they put!
From what I've heard and experienced this school isn't so great. It does not deserve 5 out of 5. Why? Well for starters the kids take everything for granted. They're just not motivated, peroid. Plus all "they" care about is winning sport games, which they hardly do. Sorry but I just don't see why so many people like this school. I've been here done that.
It is a great school with teachers that are very dedicated in teaching students. Some teachers and staff members give of their own time to help tutor students before school and after school. Some staff members even buy supplies for students who can't afford to buy them. It is a place where students know that teachers care about them and are willing to listen to them.
I teach at Toppenish Middle School as the music and we as teachers at the school are starting to do great things. We are struggling and would could use money to help our kids succeed. Our staff is committed the excellence of our students and we are developing high standards for our students.
As with any school there is always a struggle in reaching every child, but the staff here is committed to not making any excuses of why a child can't learn. Instead they are focusing on individualizing instruction and building relationships with children that will not only help them academically, but also make them better people......
The students and their families are amazing! Some of our students live crazy lives, but they are in school every day and try their best. They are extremely dedicated and have the most wonderful personalities. In short, the students of TMS have made me a better person!
The teachers are knowledgable in their field. They work together in Professional learning communities to ensure the best possible education for each student. Also, teachers offer students additional tutoring time each morning, before school and afternoon, after school. Our teachers use the most current research to improve student engagement and achievment!
