  • Regarding the first review posted.I am so proud of the mother who spoke up about her daughter. I am also having problems with the school. I thought i was the only one that had problems with the school.They made me think all this time it was my child but i think it is the school.By the time your child hits 8th grade you are so stressed and your child is too.Your child will get to the point where they don't even want to go to school anymore. Their grades drop and they just don't care about school anymore. It is so easy for them to say it is your child than the lack of supervision within the class rooms. I think more parents need to write reviews like you and I and maybe somebody will listen and look into what is really going on in the school. If you want phone calls almost everyday then send your child to Thomas Edison. trust me it isn't the school they make it out to be.

  • I sent my daughter to TEMS, thinking it would be a great school for her to make something better of herself, she got into NO trouble while in the Middletown school system, then she went to TEMS, in 6th grade she didn't get into trouble 7th grade she got into a lil which was understandable, BUT then in the 8th grade a lil incidented with her and her best friend had occured the princpal took it way beyond nessary, suspeneded my daughter, made her deleted a facebook page that didn't say anything negative towards the student, wasn't made in school, it was just a simiple statement, the princapal took the other students side, without listening to her my daughter, then the princpal falsey tried accusing my daughter of bullying, my daughter tells me everything, and she told me step by step what was happening, it was ridcoulous i went into the school numberous amounts of time, she called my daughter out of class to speach with her... I strongly dont recommened this school to anyone to send there child, it was one of my worst choices as a parnet...The princpals at first make it sound like they are the best school out there, they know everything to say but then once you get to into the school, everythings a different story.
