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
