    Two Rivers Middle School has really went down in the past two years. The new priniciple is rude and doesn't seem to like parents being involved with their childs education. It also seems as though with the new principle came a aweful fog over most of the teachers. You can really tell they don't care about their job and just there for a pay check. It is very sad to me how the kids are punished by the priniciple and the teachers when a parent voices concern. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

    i dont like the fact that they never give homework to the students. I am concerned that this is not preparing them for High School or College.

    The school overall is ok and this is due to there are some teachers who really care about the students' education. But my personal experience as a parent in dealing with one of the 6th grade teachers has been very unpleasant and unproductive. She plays retaliation games in response to me displaying concern she chooses which student she wants to pick on a certain day. She doesnt return phone calls email messages or notes sent to her. Principal leadership is pretty good but the longer my child attends Two Rivers this school appears to not support parental involvement unless it is a matter of boosting their morale. I gathered this from dealing with a specific teacher this year and I worry everyday what will happen that day. And my child stays stressed out because he feels like he is being picked on by the teacher.

    Horrible school! I honestly cannot say anything good about it. My daughters supplies were constantly getting stolen. Her brand new $1600 french horn was switched out for a broken beat up one and no one did anything about it. My daughter was on the soccer team which was coached Mr Thomas (the math teacher) who did nothing but yell at the girls and make them cry. The former principle refused to go to the girls events because he didn't believe in supporting girls sports. This went on for years! They should've burned down that school and fired everyone in it! the evidence of how bad this school is is apparent in the school it feeds McGavock HS One of the worst in the state!

    I love TRMS cause it gets you good grades and the teachers are great each and everyone of them. The students are real nice and it has alot of clubs. IT has awesome principal and assistant principal are very nice. If you want a good child then yyou should let them go to Two Rivers Middle School.

    TRMS is a great school as far as academic. Some of the teachers are a little to quick to call the parents but other than that it has been a great school for my son. As far as sports go it could be better. The principal Mr. Moody is a terrific principal. He relates to the kids well. He compliments them when they deserve it. The assistant principal Mr. Bruno is also a great asset. He seems to be the disciplinary principal. I have heard him in the hallway with some of the kids and he gets on their level to try and understand whats going on. They do a great job making sure the kids are safe.

    This school is a great place. Yeah you have your typical bad kids but other than that its nothing to worry about. The 8th grade teachers are the best. I cant say enough about them.

    I was a student at TRMS.The students were nice the teachers were great at getting the point across and making sure we under stoood everything.Most of all I remember the prinipal and vice principal.William Moody-p.John Hubble. Mr. Moody would always check in on us and help uslearn and 'break the ice' when it was at bad times. I am going to mis them as now i am going into McGavock High as a freshman. Lets hope the people are as nice and friendly as TRMS!!!

    I am very pleased with the sports program at TRMS and feel the coaches are very positive but tough when necessary. I however do not appreciate the negative environment from the teachers and office staff. Positive reinforcement even with children that tend to 'test the waters' tends to outweigh the constant negativity they are shown and eventually copy. I wish the staff would recognize they are still dealing with children who are easily influenced by the atmosphere that is surrounding them.
