TCPS Middle School

The goal of the TCPS Middle School is to prepare intelligent, creative, successful, and insightful students for academic success.  The program is heavily research based, and provides students with not only the academic skills, but the life skills to be successful throughout their life and to continue their love for learning.  

Beginning in Middle School, students are offered additional electives.  Students in grades 7 & 8 have the choice to take Spanish language class or an Advanced Research class for 1 hour each day.  Students who opt to take Spanish often are able to test out of Spanish 1 & 2 in high school.  Those that sign-up for Advanced Research will begin their high school career with a thorough knowledge of research methods and presentation skills.

PACT is a class held once a week for all Middle School students.  It is a forum to discuss issues affecting the Middle School students.  Topics are discussed that are present amongst students and the school (social issues, projects, classes, etc.), relevant to their age group (handling peer pressure, making the right choices, ect.), and ones that will prepare them for high school (time management, how to approach a teacher, where to look for help when its needed, etc.).  Included in the PACT program, students attend an annual Middle School Camp (at no additional charge).

Ms. Risch offers academic counseling for graduating students and their families as they decide where to attend high school.  In recent years, students have elected to continue their education at both private schools and public schools.  The majority of TCPS graduates attend The Bishop's School, Francis Parker School, La Jolla Country Day School and The School of International Studies' International Baccalaureate program at San Diego High School.  We are happy to say that for the last few years, all of our graduating eighth grade students were accepted into every program in which they applied.
