Tchefuncte Middle School is a forward looking school with a community of administrators, teachers, parents, and students who recognize the value of high academic achievement, coupled with support and instruction in the areas of problem-solving, creativity, collaboration, and communication for all of our stakeholders. This desire to foster 21st century learning is at the heart of our school culture. Administrators, school leaders, and community stake holders support teachers, interact with parents and community, and celebrate student learning and achievement in a transformational style, modeling open communication and creation of strategies that support collaboration and eliminate isolation, characteristics that are the very essence of our modern society. The transformational school culture at Tchefuncte Middle School works side-by-side with the members of our school community to ensure that our students are motivated and educated to succeed in tomorrow’s job market and in life.

Tchefuncte Middle School makes it a priority to engage families and the community in school performances, events, and improvement endeavors. Year after year, we are able to drive our school forward as a result of active, hands on support of parents, teachers, students, and school administrators. We excel in achieving that balance of creating fun experiences for our students, which also accomplishes the objective of building confident, character driven young people. As a school community, we work hard and focus our energy on meeting the needs of all students, starting before day one. We build character, promote responsibility, and impact the lives of every child, every day.
