Welcome to Tuckahoe Middle School!
This year, our theme is “Celebrating 60 Years of Excellence." We are finishing up the 3rd year of our $30 million renovation, as our school turns 60 years old. This is cause for celebration!
In addition to turning 60, this year our designation as an International Baccalaureate school begins its 10th year! With nearly 1150 students coming from 38 countries and speaking 25 different languages, we are proud to celebrate our diversity focusing on cultural awareness and appreciation. By visiting this website, you will be updated with current events and celebrations and will be able to see what is happening at TMS throughout the year.
Tuckahoe Middle School is steeped in tradition, as its doors were first opened in 1959. We strive to ensure our students have an optimal middle school experience. In doing so, we intend to celebrate the work we do each day.
Our work focuses on three important student needs: academic, social, and emotional. Academically, we work hard to implement the Henrico Learner Profile by creating engaging lessons that spark interest while making learning relevant. We work to motivate our students to do their best, foster their learning through creativity and critical thinking. To meet their social needs, we create lessons that foster collaboration, provide times for academic and sports-inspired pride rallies, and identify ways to allow our students to interact with their peers through clubs, sports, and other school activities. With a caring staff that helps foster a sense of belonging, we meet the emotional needs of our students as we continue to ramp up school spirit, design ways to instill kindness and care for others and recognize the many talents we all possess and encompass.
Middle school should be celebrated as the bridge from childhood to adulthood as our adolescents experience a new level of learning. While at times middle school can be challenging, we strive each and every day to create an environment that is accepting and caring and that allows our students to develop into successful global citizens of quality character, who are true representatives of the Henrico Learner Profile. We look forward to the 2019-2020 school year and to celebrating the many successes we encounter each and every day.
