TAMS Constitution

In June 2011 the parent organization of TAMS, National Middle School Association, changed their name to Association for Middle Level Education. After much discussion, it was felt that “National” did not adequately reflect the growing international membership. And, the organization is dedicated to middle level education of grades 5-9, regardless of the name or grade configuration of the schools that house them, so the change removes the “Middle School” designation.





TAMS is affiliated with the Association of Middle Level Education. See the About page for membership forms and benefits.
