Our focus is on the academic, social, emotional, and physical growth of our students in a nurturing environment that will contribute to success as responsible students and citizens.I am extremely proud of the students and staff at Tippecanoe Middle School. The hard work and dedication of both of these groups makes this building a great place to learn and grow. Our staff members are innovative and motivated. New instructional strategies are introduced on a daily basis to keep learning positive and exciting.We have some great programs in place to help our students become academically successful. Our after-school Study Table provides additional resources and support for our students. We offer leveled Math and Language Arts and Reading to address the learning needs of all of our students as well as Science classes in both 7th and 8th grades. Our Sciuence Department has earned the Governor's Thomas Edison Award for STEM Education and Student Research eight times since 2010. Our Science Fair participants continue to shine at all levels as well. Our students consistenly score in the top portion of the county each year on the state standarized tests.Over the course of the past couple of school years, we have added classes in multiple areas that enhance an already outstanding curriculum. When your student leaves the middle school, they will have been given a strong foundation of skills that will prepare them for their high school years.On a personal note, I am a Tippecanoe High School graduate and I have two sons who are Tipp City Alumni and are graduates of The Ohio State University and the Moretz School of Law and Miami University.
