Mendham Township Middle School - Academics, Athletics, Arts !

Mendham Township Middle School (MTMS) students, parents, teachers, staff, administration, and Board of Education are committed to ensuring that the school’s mission, "Provide the Best Education for Every Student - Every Day!" drives everything they do! Aggressive academic programming and a clinical approach to instruction and interventions secure academic success for all.

MTMS earned the coveted NJDOE "Reward School Status" in 2012, 2013, and 2014 - alongside only two other public middle schools statewide. During the same time period, our students captured 17 Morris County athletic championships, and over 60% dedicated themselves to rigorous band, orchestra, chorus, and theater programs beyond school hours.

The community deeply embraces the notion that the rich co-curricular and extra-curricular offerings foster a great sense of pride in MTMS and connects students to their school - ultimately, creating a learning environment conducive to every student meeting his/her greatest potential every day.

MTMS teachers play THE essential role in educating their students. They are highly qualified, highly skilled, and highly collaborative professionals whose success is measured not by their intense focus, sweat equity, or above and beyond efforts, but by the achievement and growth of their students - true ownership of student outcomes! MTMS teachers further recognize that their primary roles are to inspire students, empower self-sufficiency, develop learning partnerships, and implement systems of instruction that produce exceptional achievement for ALL students.

With great pride, MTMS prepares students to successfully contribute to West Morris Mendham High School - currently ranked #4 in New Jersey.
