Both of my daughters attend TMS. My oldest daughter has been a straight-A student since arriving in the Hamilton district. My younger daughter is almost a straight-A student. Yes, there are some teachers here that don't have the strengths of their colleagues, but I feel very confident that my children are cared about and that most of their teachers want them to learn and succeed.

Very large school - my son had a wonderful 'house' in 6th grade and I was very pleased with the school. He had a terrible 'house' in 7th grade and it was a very long and painful year. The experience really comes down to the teachers that are in each house. There are alot of great teachers in this school. However, it seems like 'birds of a feather flock together'. There was one teacher in my son's house that I really respected (a male teacher). The school is so big that the crappy teachers continue to get away with their behavior and things fall through the cracks. If I get a bad house again in 06/07, I'm leaving the Hamilton District.

Good School, concern about students is more than grades by almost every teacher. The complete student is the main goal of many of the staff members. There are staff members who do not care. But they are far outnumbered by the ones who do. Administration is not always so caring. More concerned with the dollars and cents, and scores than with the whole child.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
