Dear TMS Community,

State assessments have begun. Please refer to our online calendar. 

Please know that our gentle approach (no fanfare)  to assessing our students' skills is unique, as we put the child first.  Please call me (Cell: 401-575-2855) if you wish.

To be frank: there is no longer a stressful test.  PARCC is now formatted sensibly and is in line with its intended purpose: to serve as nothing more than an external-objective measure of our boys' and girls' achievement towards the  learning standards and skills they need for high school and beyond. PARCC's original format included 15-20 hours of testing: that was absurd. Thank goodness our voices were heard!

We will not offer more than one hour or so per day...gentle, low-stakes process -- as it should be.

Yours in partnership,
Dr. Laurie Dias-Mitchell

Dear TMS Community,

The faculty and staff of Tiverton Middle School share an educational philosophy that celebrates each child as a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially.

We accomplish this by serving as instructional guides, by allowing each child's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and by promoting respect for all things and all people. Please join us in our commitment to nurturing and guiding our community’s young people towards developing into the best versions of themselves!

Yours in partnership,
Dr. Laurie Dias-Mitchell
