Takoma Park Middle School teaches 993 students from grades 6 through 8 (updated as of Aug 5, 2014).
- Local students come from Piney Branch Elementary School and East Silver Spring Elementary School.
- In each grade, about 100 students from all over the county come to TPMS for the Magnet Math, Science and Computer Science program (which students had to test into and apply for in 5th grade). Many local students are in the magnet program, too. For those students, 3 of 8 classes are “magnet” classes: math, science, and computer science. All other classes are with the rest of the student body.
- Takoma Park Middle School has specific programs for students who are new to this country (METS), or whose home language is not English (ESOL). These students can be with ESOL teachers for one class or most classes.
