Tupelo Middle School (TMS), serving grades 7-8, has an enrollment of 1139 students, of whom approximately 50% are minority. Students are served by a staff of 90 certified teachers. Most service-learning activities are currently funded by the Mississippi State Department of Education, Learn & Serve America and GEAR UP grants.

With funding from the Schools of Success, all students at TMS will participate in "Building Bridges with Service-Learning" a program designed to integrate service-learning by focusing on STEM. It is their hope that providing every student exposure to and involvement in this program will create a sense of equity and cooperation between children of diverse backgrounds.

TMS has been involved with organizations such as: Information Communication Technology; Project Angel Tree; Traceway, a local assisted-living facility; CATCHKIDS, a local non-profit medical agency for low income families; DARE; Tupelo Junior Auxiliary, etc., to provide meaningful service-learning projects for kids.

A recipient of the National Service-Learning Leader School Award, TMS enjoys strong support from key administrators and local professionals in the Tupelo community.
