    "RUDE! Heard my child complain of staff being rude, but dismissed it. That changed after what I personally witnessed. As I was picking up my child in the office and she was approaching me, a staff member came rushing out of a side office with her head down looking at some files. She ran smack in to my daughter. My daughter's immediate reaction was "oh - I'm sorry!". The woman stopped, gave my daughter a very dirty look, did not return the apology, then stopped to tell a secretary "did you just see what she did?". This woman made no attempt to exchange apologies with my daughter, then had the nerve to stand staring at her as if she had been wronged somehow, I praised my daughter for reacting with kindness and assured her she did nothing wrong, as I witnessed the entire event. How sad that this school would hire people that are so openly rude to children. Shouldn't you actually LIKE children to work at a school? I would like that woman to slam in to me out of nowhere - I would be much more of a match for such a rude reaction to her own mistake! Too bad they do not feel that children deserve the respect of common courtesy!"

    "We no longer attend this school. It has one of the worst reputations for bullying and not responding to parents in that regard, even with the new principal. They are more concerned with covering their bottoms that attending to serious issues. Our child was bullied by a teacher and it had life changing consequences for us. Beware. There are some exceptional teachers here and some teachers who should be fired for misconduct. I hear better things about the other PUSD middle schools."

    "My daughter had a wonderful experience at TP and my son who is currently at TP is excelling! There are some extraordinary teachers at this school who love kids and want them to succeed....there are only a few (minimal) who only 'teach' and do not work 'with' kids...as each child is different. I believe that the principal Dr. Burke (who has kids of her own) loves kids, wants them to succeed, and will make any changes necessary so that TP builds good, solid, human beings."

    "Elementary to middle school is a rough transition for our children. Twin Peaks was a terrible experience for my daughter. There is little to NO discipline and a lack of authority. Some kids have NO values, my daughter was sexually harassed by text messaging, with VERY vulgar comments. I went to the principal and reported it, they seemed to take it seriously but the kids were never even suspended when my daughter was suspended for a day for keeping someone's cell phone for too long and not wanting to give it back, which "they" interpreted as stealing and wrote it in her file. I requested them to write objective facts and they ignored my request. The kid AGREED for her to use it. The actions don't compare to one another. In my opinion sexual harassment is much worse, but little was done. I encourage you to sit outside the school before you enroll your kid and observe the way girls are dressed even though there is a NO shorts, spaghetti straps policy. As you can imagine, the bullying is out of control. It is a mess."

    "My daughter has just finished 6th grade at this school, and it has been a nightmare! I feel sorry for all the upcoming fifth graders coming next year, as they have NO idea what they're in for. I cannot blame it 100% on the teachers and leadership, but their professionalism and performance leave a lot to be desired."
