Terman Middle School Reviews
We love Terman. Our student is in 6th grade - they do such great hands-on projects that really help them love learning. Science Fair projects, book reports posters, 4-day science field trip to Marin Headlands to learn about the environment. Next week they are mummifying a stuffed animal to learn about Egypt, and building a sarcophagus out of a shoe box! Music concerts, carnivals, parties - such a great group of teachers, kids, and families. A very diverse crowd but they all get along. The staff is so supportive of individual needs. We feel like the school is part of our extended family! We are looking forward to continuing the learning adventure at Terman.
