    I believe this review system does not reflect the actual achievements of the accredited and not recognized but exemplary schools. Schools like Hall and Trinity are over rated because of wealthy influence in the curriculum and scoring. Hall is almost 50 years old and it looks it. It needs to be pushed and a new school needs to be put in it's place rather than keep enlarging their athletic program that stinks in my opinion.

    I can toatlly see why they havn't been regognized in a few years. The teacher s are completely oblivious to all of the problems that students have and they do almost nothing if they do find out. Eighth grade was a huge jump from seventh. It was like they threw us to the sharks. There is so much to keep up with and I feel very frantic.

    Honestly I had a great school year and I'm excited for next year. The teachers are nice and if you are nervous don't be. I was to but I had a great time. I learned a lot and the teachers make sure that you know and understand the activity. I highly recomend this school to anyone.

    this is an awesome school. the teachers are great and the students are wonderful although the students like to saunter the halls during passing period but the teachers get them to class on time.

    I am not impressed at all with this school. Our family came from an excellent school district in the Woodlands TX and I am sorry we left. My kids were not able to continue with their current classes - it was like taking a step back. Foreign Language is not offered in the 7th grade. It also appears that students are rewarded for their academic performance on the TAKS test. In the Woodlands my son was offered to take the DUKE University ACT test early due his high TAKS scores in Math. I asked about it here and no one knew what I was talking about. I also have not heard of a school not having enough school books for each student. My child cannot take a science book home b/c it has to stay in the classroom.

    I go to this school now and i recommend it GREATLY students love this school except for some of the parents who have family related issues that i will not name but to me im only 13 and i love this school its fun coachs are the best and the teachers work us hard but we enjoy it especially since if we finish ALL of our work we get to have free time watch a movie or just talk and students are very behaved the only slight problem here is that theres a little to much talking which is great to speak your mind learned from my teen leadership teacher. Basically this is a great school now but i dont know if it has been back in the old days accourding to the other review maybe you where just had a bad semester/year. ( im sorry but it is a great school

    My child was physically assaulted leaving marks on her arm by a boy that was much larger than her. We left it up to the school to have the campus officer make a report. Big mistake. Teachers do not have the back up from the administration when they do send discipline problems to the office. They are judged as not controlling their classrooms. That is just a terrible position to put a teacher other students in. This isn't just a TMS problem it's a district wide problem. Also the lack of fine arts in the schools is pathetic. Thankfully Weatherford has many generous citizens that ensure the art programs the children have for now are offered. *frown*

    Excellant school teachers are willing to help in every way. Excellant sports program very competitive. Easy acess to school center of town. School is in great condition and very well kept up.

    This is a horrible school. The students basically didn't learn anything. The teachers also wouldn't do anything about their students' horrible behavior. It's a teacher's job to get his or her students to behave in class and I think that TMS's teachers weren't doing their jobs. I would definitely not recommend letting your kids attend this school.

    This school is pretty great. The staff is helpful and friendly. The activities are super. The only problem I have seen is that parents are not well informed of when there are major problems or happenings.... As a parent I would like to know each time this happens. I feel if the parents know then they can keep an eye out for it at home otherwise they are blindsided and ignorant. If we kept each other WELL informed we could quite possibly keep the problems at bay. ???? It would be worth a try rather than hiding it just to have a school with a good report on their student body. We could conceal whom was involved. Just my opinion and feedback.
