    This is my child s second year at TRP and the teachers have been consistent in their dedication to help mold and prepare him to be successful in his education and life skills. There is active communication from the principal to the parents on upcoming events and activities. As parents we need to be proactive in our children s education however I would like to see more individual communication from teacher to parent. I realize this is a difficult task with classrooms being so large and life being so busy. If my child is struggling I would like to know well in advance of the progress report. This way we will all be on the same page and working toward the common goal.

    My school is a great place to learn. The principle keeps things in order and is firm but kind and fair. I am always impressed that he knows the kids names and talks TO them and not AT them.

    I have never written a review before today. My son has not always enjoyed school in the past. This year seems to be a turning point. As a parent I feel I have to give TRP the high praise it deserves. My son is in the 6th grade now and he just loves TRP! I've never seen him so eager and positive about learning and homework. I recently met his teachers during parent nite and I am impressed. The Principle is great and seems to be able to connect with the kids at their level while still being a strong adult presence. His favorite teacher is Mrs. Bowers. After meeting with her I feel confident that my son will get the attention and education he needs and deserves.. Go TRP! TRP is the Right Place to Be!!!

    TRP is a great school. Every teacher has a different personality and they always try their hardest to make it fun. I feel safe when I'm here because there are at least 4 teachers out the blacktop and our dances are unbeliveable. We have a lot of after-school programs and a lot of the 6th 7th and 8th graders really get along. We may have a reputation of getting low scores in tests but everyone of my classmates has broken the mold at least twice academic-wise within a month. Our school-spirit is really great seeing as we have a student government our school leaders and a peer mediation class our school's conflict managers holding events almost if not everday that many people attend. I started out as a B/C student in 6th grade to a straight-A 8th grader. As a student I recommend TRP. -VanRalf

    Academic programs are below that of other schools. I feel my child is not challenged here and has not learned a lot in the last 2 years. The principal is great but there are many kids who are not well disciplined and that is well taken care of.

    Pollicita Middle School standards are set very high. The principal is very much the one in control at TRP. The climate at the school is pleasent.The students are well behaved. Students who wishes to act out might try pushing the buttons but as they will find out breaking the rules bring about consequences. Bullying teasing ect is not allowed. The staff works as a family. This makes a school work. I wish more parents were involved. Come and take a look at our school you will be pleased.
