  • Welcome to Talley Middle School, home of the Talley Tigers! At Talley, we strive to be successful students and develop socially and emotionally so that we can be good citizens in our school community. 

    Our nearly 800-member student body mostly comes from Claymont and North Wilmington. We offer tough courses and staff that supports students. We make decisions about our school based on data and research.  Talley Middle School faculty goes to professional training programs where they learn about content areas and how to be better teachers. We want our classrooms to be places were pupils learn cooperatively by asking great questions.   

    Our school community works together to make decisions about the educational and afterschool opportunities for students. We prepare pupils for success in a rapidly changing and tech-driven global economy. 

    Our school colors are red and white, and our mascot is the Talley Tiger!
