Twin Creeks Middle School
Twin Creeks is named for the creeks between which it is located, Spring Creek on the North and Cypress Creek on the South. The faculty and student body brought a history of success and achievement with them from their former Wunsche Middle School when the school opened in 1984.
At Twin Creeks Middle School we’re working hard to improve scholars’ academic achievement through maximized learning time, data-driven instruction, high-dosage tutoring for scholars who need it, a culture of high expectations, safe and secure learning environments, and parent outreach. We want to ensure that all parents/guardians are informed of their scholar’s progress throughout the year.
We call this having a culture of high expectations and it applies to all of our staff and students. Also, because we understand that literacy is the foundation for all learning, our teachers will incorporate literacy lessons in math, science and social studies classes.
Homework here at Twin Creeks Middle School will consist of all scholars keeping a reading log to complete every night, math problems to solve, and social studies content to review.
All of these things, plus customer service and increasing our parents perceptions, will drive the way we do things here at Twin Creeks Middle School this school year.
