My daughter has had wonderful teachers and learning experiences at Templeton. The advisement period has been a huge benefit! She has the opportunity to take enriched classes in 3 of 5 subject areas. There is a very supportive environment at the school. The band program is excellent!
The changes instituted by the principal, Dr. Mielke, have been successful! My daughter appreciates advisement. It makes the homework more manageable at night, especially considering her busy extra-curricular schedule. Thank you!
To the teachers who challenged my son -- THANK YOU and to the teacher who is a passionate lover of learning and can't help but pass it along to his kids -- A million thanks for showing my son that learning does not have to be boring.
Depending on the child, extra curriculars and academic ability it varies. For one of my kids it was 'just right to too much' an for the other not enough! It was great practice for high school and it prepared them for the rigor of AP and honors courses - which is the whole point.
TMS strives to meet students where they are. Teachers recognize ability and work to develop individual challenges for each student. Staff and instructors are professional and parents are treated with respect. Academic achievement is regularly recognized and administrators work to maintain a cutting edge approach to instruction and learning to ensure students are supported and challenged.
I have an 8th and a 6th grader this year at TMS. Last year Dr. Mielke became our new Principal. Things have been changing for the better. We've had issues with our older child not being organized and not turning things in. So far there is A LOT more communication initiated by the teachers-which is AMAZING! My son loves all his allied classes-esp. Art and Tech-there is a 3D printer. This year the "House" plan has been changed to 3 per grade with an advisement period worked into each day - to get extra help, do homework or enrichment. A program is also starting which surveys each student on what their strengths/weaknesses are in learning. With the results they will set goals, which the staff will follow up on. My kids and I are happy with TMS.
