Timberlane Regional Middle School (TRMS) is located in Plaistow, NH. The school is comprised of students in grades 6-8 from the towns of Plaistow, Atkinson, Sandown and Danville. We take great pride in the culture for learning we have created, focused on our core values of Respect, Responsibility and Right Choices. All students participate in our daily 20 minute advisory block at the beginning of each day. Our advisory program is designed to support students academically and social-emotionally. We have developed leadership opportunities for 8th graders, service learning projects for 7th graders and character development in grade 6. Advisory has helped foster a positive and supportive learning environment for our students.
TRMS has a modified, flexible block schedule that encourages personalized learning for our students. Our schedule includes a dedicated literacy block each day within our RTI model. We are able to offer targeted interventions for students with intensive and moderate learning gaps, as well as provide enrichment opportunities in all subjects. This unique block allows for cross teaming and is executed through our PLC model of teachers as learners.
In 2010, TRMS was the recipient of the New Hampshire Middle School of the year, recognized for the high degree of personalization of the school.
In 2012, we were recognized as a Spotlight School by the New England League of Middle Schools.
