Edward Anderson

Tanglewood Middle School is a special place where all students are treated as individuals.  We realize that all students, regardless of their backgrounds, come to us with different needs; and we are equipped to address those needs. Tanglewood is fortunate to be a United Way OnTrack Greenville school, providing supports to all of our students.  Being a United Way OnTrack school provides the following resources for our students: a School-Based Health Clinic through Greenville Health System; Communities in Schools; on-site mental health counseling; Literacy Coaches through Public Education Partners; and a summer program for our rising 6th graders called BELL or Building Educated Leaders for Life.  All of the aforementioned services are free to all students with the correct paperwork completed. 

Tanglewood Middle seeks to create a caring, nurturing environment with the implementation of Flip Flippen’s proven model, Capturing Kids Hearts. As we work diligently to improve achievement, we are focusing on building positive relationships and a culture of trust. We want all of our students to reach their maximum potential while preparing for high school and higher education. We focus on Centurion PRIDE and teach not only the fundamentals of curriculum but also the components of character that assist with developing good citizens. 

Tanglewood is equipped with the best instructional technology! We have Promethean Boards in every classroom coupled with Dell Chromebooks for each of our students; making us a 1:1 technology school.  With the appropriate documentation and insurance, all students will receive a Chromebook to take home. 

We also have a wide range of related arts classes that include Band, Art, Google Applications, Spanish I Virtual, Teen Leadership, Reading and Math Intervention, Physical Education/Health, and Gateway to Technology.

At Tanglewood Middle School 

Our Mission is to keep middle school students engaged in school and on track to post-secondary success.

Our Vision is to equip students with the 21st century skills and interpersonal skills necessary to become the best version of themselves.
