Striving for Excellence
We are committed to ensuring that every student is prepared for their next academic adventure. Our Middle School students learn how to become leaders as we prepare them for high school. We offer exceptional learning and extracurricular activities.
What to expect in Middle School ?
Field Trip Fridays
Our Middle School students get the opportunity to take field trips every Friday. Every field trip is a learning excursion for students to explore outside the classroom.
Small Class Sizes
Our small classroom sizes not only allow for personal assistance but for exceptional activities to be completed. We want every student to know that they matter to TP Schools.
At TP Schools, we believe that students should begin considering college early in their academic careers. We prepare our students by taking college visits, job shadowing professionals, and having career focus projects.
Chromebooks & WiFi Hotspots
Every Middle School student will receive a Chromebook and a WiFi hotspot.
Students learn how to give back by volunteering throughout the school year. Service projects help each student understand the importance of lending a helping hand.
Every classroom will have a morning chapel before starting the day. There is an all-school assembly chapel every Friday and parents are encouraged to join.

Academic & Character Award
National Junior Honor Society
The National Junior Honor Society is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding middle-level students. More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, character, and citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1929.
Student Council gives members an opportunity to develop leadership skills by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body.

This award is the highest honor given by Turning Point Schools. The teaching staff chooses the recipient of this award; the decision is based on the following criteria: character, leadership, courage, service, and scholarship.
