Ok this is an average school with really great teachers.... But the principal Mr. Wilcox is not even close to being a good principal. He has the worst relationship with the students. My child will come home from school some days talking about how bad the principal is and how none of his peers like Mr. Wilcox.
I am less impressed as time goes by, not only with TMS but with the district as a whole. Way too much emphasis is being placed on the WASL. I do think TMS is the best in the area, that is just not saying as much as it should.
this school is the best school you could put your kids in i may only b a kid but i have been treated the best at this school and it is a fun enviornment to work in im going into 8th grade but my 7th grade year was the best school year that i have ever had!!! my grades were also good here compared to my other schools!!! thank you staff and students who have made this school so fun with good acidemic!!! thank you!! ~~~~ Shailee L.

This school is very gossipy and unprofessional! They seem to focus on little issues and not the big ones! It lacks diversity in its staff which shows in their inability to deal with students equally. We have never experienced such a terrible attitude from a staff as a whole! Stay away from this school if you want fairness for your child!
Parents not familiar with this school, beware. Unless you have history, or know someone within the school staffing, any complaint you have regarding a staff member will not be taken seriously. We are new to this school, made a serious complaint, wherein it was pretended to be dealt with, when in actuality was ignored. Needless to say, we had no alternative but to move to a different district. After making the complaint, a family member of ours (not knowing to the staff) was waiting just outside the office and could hear the office staff laughing and gossiping about the complaint (which was supposed to be confidential) This school is not professional, however, appears to be if you make no complaints. The office staff is horrible, they treat the children like they have no rights, and belittle them. There are some great teachers here though.
