    The mission of Tippecanoe Middle School is to provide educational experiences that are a continuation of the intermediate school and a transition to the high school.  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. TMS has been recognized as an Excellent Building by the Ohio Department of Education and as a SOAR Award recipient for student growth by Battelle for Kids. 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.  We have an after-school program, Students Working and Achieving Together (SWAT), which provide 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 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 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.

    Thank you for letting us work with your children each day.
