Tiverton Middle School Ratings & Reviews
TMS has been a "fair" experience for my child, with both highs and lows. As for the good, there are decent student/teacher ratios and most of the teachers seem to take a genuine interest in the development of their students. The new principal has brought an energy to the position that was greatly needed. As for the not so good, there are teachers, particularly tenured ones who are more interested in "checking off the boxes" than striving to provide a quality learning experience for the kids. Neither the principal nor the school department administration appear to be willing to call these teachers to task. There is also a serious lack of parental involvement. Overall, while needing improvement, it beats paying for private school!
These reviews seem to be pretty old. The new principal and assistant principal have turned the school around -- for the better, for sure.
The school has changed very much since the last review was written. Jazz band, Cross Country, Basketball Team, and the academics overall have boomed. Our band program has been the best thank to the involvement. We have better NECAP grades and a new principal who actually cares about kids, takes discipline seriously and changed the school entirely. No fights in the hallways, better substitute teacher and more parent/student involvement. The accelerated programs are crowded with people who are eager to push ahead and attain their goals. I give this school four stars, only because the budget is very small and money is tight, but the principal made some very great iprovements.
Horrible school. Horrible Principal. No one cares about the kids. Lots of bullying and special treatment for the kids with PTO parents. If I could move or afford private school, I would never have my kids here.
Problems: 1. Some teachers at TMS are absent way too much. 2. The subs are unacceptable and nobody is supervising the students. 3. Teachers are using the internet in the class while the children run wild. 4. The rules aren't consistent and bullying is rampant. 5. Lack of athletic after school programs. 6. Detentions do not exist. 7. Some parents don't care what their children do so punishments at school are useless. 8. Supervision is lacking during transition times. Leading to fighting in the halls and outside the lunch room. 9. My child had no field trips or field days last year. Strengths: 1. We did have one ELA teacher who was excellent. I would've sent my child to private school had I known the problems in TMS. I am considering private high school for next year.
