Program Overview

As a preschool through 8th grade school, our middle schoolers are given unique opportunities to serve as leaders in our community. From overnight camping to student government elections, Middle school at TPS is marked by many experiences that provide students the skills to navigate newness and help them develop self-advocacy, clarity, and compassion. The culminating 8th grade year provides an opportunity for self-reflection, reinvention, and a voice to determine what’s next. Kids graduate TPS with a love of learning that sticks with them. They are fully prepared to excel socially and academically in the transition to high school.
