• Mr. Mayer, Our Proud Principal 

Mr. Mayer
  • Welcome to Talley Middle School! Home of the Talley Tigers! At Talley, we strive for academic excellence and develop social and emotional characteristics so that we can be good citizens within our school community. In order to build these skills, we strive to get to know all of our students by name and need. We want to know your “story” so that we can best serve you. Our staff does their best to form positive relationships with you and your families. The partnership between you at school and at home is so important in helping you achieve your goals in the classroom, playing sports, joining clubs, and/or any other activities.

    Talley Middle School’s theme is “212: The Extra Degree.” We want you to give the extra effort and time in everything you do. The essential elements of the Talley Way (Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be Focused) helps us to achieve your goals. Along with the Talley Way, we incorporate service learning and yearly themes. This school year, we are raising awareness and money for the American Cancer Society.

    Our school’s 2018-2019 theme is Grit. We want you to know what it means to have a passion and perseverance to achieve your dreams. Welcome to our Talley Family.
