I have moved around quite a lot in my life and I have attended over 8 schools so far in my life. I attended Thomas Russell Middle School after moving from San Jose to Milpitas. Right away, I felt comfortable at the school. The people, both staff and students, were helpful and kind. Although i only attended for a year, Thomas Russell Middle School was a fun and exciting school that held more activities than many of the other schools I have attended. For example, I remember once they held an activity where students would pie teachers and the principal; it was a nice way to entertain and help students have fun while in school. They also have this system they do in the morning called SSR where students are given 15-30 minutes to read. It seems that this school is really concerned with their students' education and it is an excellent school to attend.
