About Us

Welcome to Tolland Middle School!  TMS is a comprised of approximately 600 students in grades 6 through 8.  TMS has a teaming structure, by which each student is assigned to a grade level team.  There are two teams per grade level.  Each team has six teachers, two English Language Arts, one social studies, one math, one science, and one special education. Because this is the bridge between elementary school and high school, it is important that we foster independence, while providing the support and scaffolding that students need for success.  In Tolland, this is the first time that students rotate classes and have more than two teachers for core subjects.

Also new to middle school students is the concept of “grades.”  At TMS we practice Mastery Based Grading.  We, and the Tolland Public Schools at large, believe that the purpose of grades are to inform students, parents, and teachers about a child’s level of performance matched against grade-level skills and standards.  Grades are data or information meant to provide specific and actionable feedback to help each individual student improve and grow as a learner.  Thus, every student at TMS can learn and achieve academic success.  For more information about our grading policy, please click on TMS Grading Policy in the Quick Links on the right of the page.
