Vice Principal (who just left) is amazing! The guidance department is very good. The principal is fair and runs a tight ship. Very good middle school experience for my child.

The Tyrrell Middle School teachers try their best to educate the students in a very difficult administrative environment. The policies of the Middle School do not reflect district-wide policies therefore causing confusion with the students and parents. Administration does not take a "whole child" approach when applying policies not taking individuals psychological, physical and academic best interests into account. As a parent, be prepared to monitor classroom placement and don't be afraid to advocate for your child as a whole, none else will!!

We moved our daughter into 6th grade in May at the end of the school year. It was a very big change for our daughter who had been in her previous school since pre-K. Mrs. Tansley and Mrs. Buzzelli knocked themselves out making it a very smooth transition for her and us. Our daughter feels confident about where she is at and loves the school and the teachers and had a very positive experience as a result of their efforts. The students were really great to her as an incoming student too!

Tyrrell is an incredible school! The principal does an outstanding job running everything. There are also a variety of after school activities such as Student Council, Construction Engineering Club, and Drama Club. The teachers are great, as well. Many are funny and make learning fun. Along with being fun, they are also strict. This may seem bad, but it certainly isn't because. makes the school run very smoothly everyday. I have truly enjoyed myself at Tyrrell. I cannot picture any other middle school being better than it.

This school is absolutely amazing! As a student, I believe that there are great and experienced teachers, healthy and delicious lunches, amuzing assemblies, and fun-filled activities/sports! I was a bit anxious when I started this middle school, but after the first day of schools, the teachers and kids here allowed me to fit in perfectly! Also, there is a great gifted program, Project Explore, here!
