TMS will host six Saturday School sessions designed to target areas of need evidenced by student performance data. Regardless of level of achievement, Saturday School is encouraged for all students. Our goal is to provide timely remediation, acceleration or enrichment (R.A.E.) well before the "test prep" time that typically occurs in late February or March. Saturday school is from 9 to 12. Students should be dropped off at the school at 8:45 AM and picked up at 12:00 PM. The dates below are the established dates for Saturday School.
