My experience as a TMS student were well. I had a more flexible schedule back then and managed to take it easy and get the grades I wanted throughout my three years there. The teachers I had there were nice. They managed to help me in a way where I can understand what they teach me since I am a slow learner. The amount of spirit and love toward the school when I was there was very well shown, therefore, the school I am happy to review.

I am currently in my final year at tark and i really dislike this school. It feels like all of the administration is against me and i see kids getting bullied often. I have attended this school for three years and i have seen everything from sex in the bathrooms to an organized fight club which the news has covered. Teachers and administration wold rather tell kids to take their hood off than stop a kid from being bullied.
As a student who attended Tarkanian Middle School for one year, I have grown to appreciate the school. The students and teachers inspired me to grow and overcome my shyness. I have no complaints about Tarkanian due to the school being very organized and the incredible teachers. My peers at Tarkanian Middle School have encouraged me to grow and step out of my shell.
