About Us

Welcome to Tyrrell Middle School! Tyrrell is the educational home of Wolcott's 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students, and it is an exciting place to learn. The building was renovated in 2000 and it offers much to enhance the curriculum:  A library media center, advanced technology and Internet access in every classroom, auditorium, fitness room, athletic fields, and beautiful grounds.  Students have every opportunity to participate in activities during and after school. We offer sports, specialty music groups, an annual musical, National Junior Honor Society, Student Council, and various clubs and activities.

They all have contributed to an educational environment that allows students to grow emotionally, academically, physically, and socially.
