The lottery for 2018-2019 is now closed. We are no longer taking new applications. The next lottery for 2019-2020 will be open for registration on June 15th, 2018. That lottery will take place on February 11th, 2019.
Our next Open House will take place on Thursday, January 17th, 2019 from 5pm to
7:30pm. This is the only opportunity to see the school as we do not give private
Now in its twenty first year, (2018-2019 school year), TCMS has provided thousands of students in the Tampa Bay Area with an unparalleled education. There is no greater compliment to those of us who have the privilege of working here that so many of our alumni return to visit the faculty and staff and share with us that what they learned as students at TCMS more than prepared them for their high school and college educations.
As you explore the many options that are available for your child's middle school education, we ask that you consider TCMS because we believe, above all, that all children can learn. We provide a safe and secure learning environment. Our teachers are committed to providing the best instruction possible on a daily basis and are always available before school, during lunch and after school to offer tutoring for those students who seek additional help.
TCMS has been recognized over the years for its strong back to basics academic program and has now been named the #4 Charter School in the state! Based on the 2016-2017 school year FSA results, our school was ranked first out of all the School District of Hillsborough County middle schools, and and fourth in the state of Florida. We are so very proud of our Class of 2017. Close to 40% of the 9th grade class at King IB (Fall, 2017) was made up of our graduates. We are also very proud of the other eighth graders who were accepted into various magnet programs or private high schools such as Jesuit and Tampa Catholic.
Because we believe in educating the whole child, there are numerous clubs and organizations that promote character development, teamwork and community service. Students who participate on our extramural athletic teams have the opportunity to compete against other charter schools and private schools in the Tampa Bay area. TCMS supports the arts and has a phenomenal band and chorus program that performs not only for the school community, but at events in the Tampa Bay area.
I sincerely hope that you will consider us for your child's middle school education and please do not hesitate to contact me with questions.
