About Us

Welcome to Tolland Middle School!  TMS is a comprised of approximately 600 students in grades 6th through 8th.  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 teacher 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.

A Message from Principal Mary Grande:


Dear Parents and  Guardians,
Please take a moment to discuss with your child the importance of wearing appropriate clothing to school for winter months.  We continue to have a number of students wearing shorts to school on days when the temperature is well below freezing.  In the event that we have an evacuation, forcing us to be outside for an extended length of time, these students will become cold very quickly. 

Thank you for your help with this concern.
Yearbook orders will be accepted from January 3 - March by using the order form attached to the Digital Backpack.  Orders may be placed online by clicking this link.

A District Code is required when logging in to the PowerSchool Parent/Student Portal from phones, iPads, Chromebooks and other devices.  The DISTRICT CODE for PowerSchool Portal is WDMT (all caps)
