Meet a TAMS teacher

A supportive school filled with friendly faces and an emphasis on personal, academic, and emotional growth.  

Thornton Academy Middle School (TAMS) is a place where students can create, dream, and inspire. At TAMS, everyone knows your name and you are more than just a student in the classroom. You are valued as an integral member of our learning community. Within our safe environment, all different types of learning may take place.

We are currently accepting applications for the 23-24 school year.   

TA and TAMS have been very good for both of our kids.  I've been especially impressed with my daughter's TAMS teachers. They never fail to impress me with their dedication to their students, preparedness for the class, compassion for all learners and just their wonderful spirits.
