Welcome to Tolland Middle School

PCLP - Pandemic Continuity of Learning Program
About Us

Welcome to Tolland Middle School!  TMS is 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 five teachers, one 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.  

 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.

Wear your Pajamas to School – December 9, 2022

We are excited to raise money for kids battling cancer at Connecticut Children’s! We look forward to joining with other schools and businesses across the state to honor patients who must wear their pajamas for days, weeks, or longer while fighting cancer or other serious illnesses.

We hope you will consider making a donation in honor the young patients who turn to Connecticut Children's for hope.

Click Here to donate online or bring $1.00 to school to wear your pajamas to school
