TPS Math and Science is at a very high level resulting in an exceptional MCAS for 2018-2019! High school preparation for both subjects for TPS 9th grade students for Fall 2019 at Wachusett Regional HS was also at a high level per the high school teachers. TPS is a true STEAM school giving detailed attention to the students.
