Stephen Matyczyk, Principal
Welcome to Tariffville School, a National School of Character. Our school prides itself on the high academic achievement of our students, an exemplary character education program that has received national recognition, and strong family and community involvement. The school mission statement supports our belief that all children will learn and reach their fullest potential.
"The Tariffville School community provides a safe and nurturing environment where mutual respect among adults and students is practiced, diversity is celebrated, and where parents and families are seen as valued partners in layering the foundation of life-long learning.
Our school implements a rigorous curriculum with high academic expectations and cultivates the character development of each student. We prepare our students to be successful learners and responsible citizens in today's world."
The faculty and administration engage in a continuous improvement process within a professional learning community that focuses on improving student learning and classroom instruction.
The CLIMB (Character Lives In My Behavior) program incorporates four character ideals–Caring, Respect, Responsibility and Citizenship–which form the foundation of our school culture. Students are recognized for exhibiting the CLIMB character traits, and accomplishments are celebrated at CLIMB assemblies held regularly throughout the year.
Parent volunteers are welcomed and encouraged to assist in classrooms and at special events. The PTO works in partnership with the faculty and staff. This dedicated group of parents/guardians provides support for curriculum resources, equipment, and enrichment programs. They also sponsor numerous events and activities for our students throughout the year and are always looking for volunteers.
Staff and students gather to honor Veterans with musical selections by the band and choir. Thank you for your service.
