Welcome to the Middle School
I am pleased to offer you this opportunity to learn more about Tampa Prep. In keeping with the finest tradition of independent school education, Tampa Prep has offered a college preparatory program since 1974. In 1991, Tampa Prep embarked upon a Middle School program.
The Middle School provides an environment in which each student will develop a strong academic background and a sense of ethical and social responsibility. Students learn to communicate effectively and appropriately orally, in writing and through the fine arts, and they are encouraged to participate in activities to explore and develop both their interests and talents. The close personal relationships developed in the classrooms, on the playing fields, and in advising sessions make Tampa Prep a very special place for students to develop. I would encourage your student to get involved! Classes give students the chance to push their knowledge and develop important skills they will need as they progress in school. Clubs, athletics, music, and the arts give students a wealth of new experiences. Students gain understanding about themselves and their abilities, try new things, and form lasting friendships.
I encourage prospective students and families to explore this Website, visit our school, and then meet with students, parents, and faculty. Only then can you begin to capture the special qualities of our school and determine if they match your expectations. We are proud of our challenging curriculum, our diversity, our first rate facilities, our dedicated faculty, but most of all we are proud to have families who make education a priority. Middle School is a period of rapid growth, and we want your student to use his/her time to have a rich and varied experience. We are here to help your student and assist you during this journey. Please contact us if we can be of assistance.
