Get a JUMP on 7th grade this summer: Jump Start Program

IMAGE: TMS Cougar Mascot. Each year Tortolita Middle School holds a summer program called Jump Start. Jump Start is a program designed to give 6th graders a “jump start” on their upcoming 7th grade school year.


Jump Start is a unique opportunity for your student and has proven to be very successful in addressing the “pre-middle school jitters.”

During the one week program, teachers from Tortolita will be working with students on organization, goalsetting, presentation skills, Chromebook care, and many other important skills they will need to be successful in middle school. In addition to our curriculum, your child will also have the opportunity to meet some of our Tortolita staff, learn their way around the school, practice how to open lockers, and adjust to a diverse schedule with various teachers!


Please contact the school office to register at 520-579-4600, or stop by 4101 W. Hardy Rd., Tucson, AZ 85742.
