Overview:


Tison Middle School opened in the fall of 1997, in honor of Mayor Joe M. Tison.  Mr. Tison served as Superintendent of Schools from 1986 until 1997.  He also served as Mayor of the City of Weatherford from 2000 to 2007.


Tison Middle School serves students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Tison faculty strive to inspire a passion for lifelong learning in every child.  Classrooms are student focused and structured to not only present content in challenging ways, but also to promote soft skills like stamina, grit, and collaboration. The skills are necessary for success in a future ready learning environment.


Students are afforded many opportunities to explore talents and interest through their participation in our award-winning fine arts program.  All 6th grade students take one semester health and writing. All 7th grade students take one semester of touch data systems and professional communications. Our 8th grade students take our CTE course called Employability Skills. We offer art, band, choir, theater, and dance in order to encourage students to explore their interest in the arts.  We also offer elective courses in Spanish, web communications, and robotics/Project Lead the Way.


Tison Middle School proudly supports our young men and women on the field through our robust athletic programs.  We compete in football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, and track.  Our athletic program is competitive and instrumental in getting our students ready for high school competition.


Tison is also very dedicated to serving the needs of all students.  Students with special needs receive support through our STACI (Structured Teach and Communication Intervention) and SDI (Specially Designed Instruction) programs.  We also offer learning support of English as Second Language (ESL) for our Emergent Bilingual students.


Our Tison family is a supportive coalition of educators, parents, students, and the community of Weatherford, working together to teach, challenge, and inspire every day.  We are proud Roos!
