VISION: Educating students to become globally competitive in the 21st Century Society.
opened in a brand new facility in the 2003-2004 school year. As a fundamental school, Thurgood Marshall emphasizes academic excellence, parental involvement, including required parent attendance at monthly meetings, monitoring and signing of homework and support of the fundamental school philosophy. Fundamental school students are expected to complete nightly homework, to show self-discipline and responsibility, and to adhere to a dress code beyond that in a traditional school. Communication between the school and the home is a strong point of a fundamental school. The commitment to education by the student, family and school staff is expected to result in high student achievement. Make Thurgood Marshall your fundamental choice.
Thurgood Marshall Fundamental Middle School was founded in 2003 to offer students who live in middle school Attendance Area ‘A’ an alternative educational experience to the one available at traditional middle schools. Thurgood provides programs that emphasize structure, student responsibility, mandatory homework, and parental involvement. This “back to basics” philosophy demands that students take a serious approach to learning and that parents become involved with the school and their child’s education.
MISSION: The learning community of TMFMS will ensure high student achievement
in a safe learning environment to promote citizenship and lifelong learning.
Welcome Incoming Jaguar Students and Families,
We hope you are enjoying your summer break. As the 2015-2016 school year approaches please mark your calendars for Thurgood Marshall Fundamental 6th grade Orientation on August 20th from 9am-12pm.
The orientation is for students only. Students will receive their schedules, planners, purchase locks ($6.00) , and have an opportunity to find all of their classes prior to the first day of school. Participating students will also receive information on dress code, fundamental policy and ways to ensure a smooth transition into middle school.
Parents are invited to attend a PTSA informational meeting beginning at 11am in the cafeteria prior to student pickup. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about volunteer opportunities, fundraisers and student expectations here at Thurgood Marshall Fundamental Middle School. At the conclusion of the orientation students will be escorted to the cafeteria to join their parents for dismissal. We hope to see everyone there!

After your child has received these vaccines, please turn in a completed certificate of immunization to the school.
You can contact your child’s healthcare provider to request these vaccines. If your child does not have a healthcare provider, immunizations are available at no cost at your local Department of Health location, no appointment is needed.
