    "AVID Demonstration School TCMS is our newest AVID National Demonstration School! Congratulations to Terra Cotta Middle School, officially certified today as an AVID National Demonstration School! This distinction lasts three years, which is the highest that can be awarded to any AVID demonstration school. Of the thousands of AVID schools in the nation, only 147 have the distinction of being AVID National Demonstration Schools."

    "Both of my children went to this school and I would say it was a huge change from their Elementary school Luiseno to the middle school Terra Cotta because of the change of demographics. I would say there was only one horrible math teacher that graded my son not passing in Algebra 1 and his star testing results scored him advanced and on target. My son had to redo the class in highschool. This teacher is retiring this year so now the school is great in teachers!"

    "This school is horrible! My Daughter was there for two weeks and was already bullied and threatened because she was white and the advice she received from the school was , " just ignore it" and her being bullied because she was white they said " has been a problem here for years". Nice! I do not recommend this school. I removed my daghter from the school and she is much happier."

    "My son's experience has been absolutely wonderful. As an educator, I can say first-hand that this school has some really great people. The administration has always been very receptive to my concerns and have always helped me find solutions despite how minor they may be (they were not made aware of my profession), and the teachers always reply to my emails and always find ways to help my son should he require additional assitance. Although the school and surrounding neighborhoods are socioeconomically disadvantaged, which can be seen with the clientele who attend the school, we've been lucky in selecting a good circle to avoid facing any of the problems that sometimes accompany that type of demographic. We've had a wonderful experience and give praise to the entire staff. Two thumbs up!"

    "I recently took my grandson out of Terra Cotta because of the lack of communication between the teachers and parents. He was failing in all his classes and snap grades and homework assignments on the computer in all of his classes were at least 2 weeks behind. We were told 'by middle school it was the students responsibility to know their assignments and get them turned in'...Well, first year of middle school is difficult for some of these kids, if we could have looked things up on the computer it would have solved alot of problems. Papers not turned in, he would get to spend the day sitting in the office. Thats not what I call an education. He is now in private school. 'No child left behind'. Huh????"
