Tench Tilghman Elementary/Middle School


Tench Tilghman offers a rigorous academic program as well as a variety of enrichment activities, health and social supports, and college and career readiness programming. We are home to the “Falcon 45,” a small-group intervention program, which occurs three days a week in every classroom. In addition, we have a full-service health clinic, twice-monthly food pantry, and arts-integrated 21st Century after-school program with the Creative Alliance. We envision Tench Tilghman Elementary Middle Community School as being a safe haven for students, parents, teachers and community members in order to change the culture of the community as well as provide a stable environment that focuses on academics as well as emotional, social and physical health.
