    "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."

    "TCM is a horrible school to have your children attend. I personally went there as a student, and they would stress you out more than necessary. The administration overreacts about every little thing. A certain was pregnant and off duty for three months. We received a substitute who put hands on a student. Who then got fired causing us to have an unsteady line of substitutes. The punishments given to students are definitely over the top. The cafeteria food has been shown to cause food poisoning due to not being fully cooked, All issues aside, I definitely would not recommend this school to anyone, regardless of close location, or so called great administration. They clearly don't take their jobs seriously. Thank you."

    "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!"
