Welcome to Tenney Grammar School! From the first greeting of parents and students at Kindergarten (and Pre-School) orientation to the fond farewell at the Eighth Grade Promotion Ceremony, we strive to offer a warm, supportive and academically appropriate experience for all. Our goal is to put the students first and combine our talents and efforts to meet their needs and interests. The Tenney Community is committed to fostering a rich learning environment that promotes student growth—academically, socially, and emotionally.
We believe in…Tenney PRIDE
Partnerships - We believe that a positive educational experience is dependent on continued collaboration between home and school. As such, we envision that our community of students, parents, and staff will work together as partners to communicate our common goal of educational excellence and positive character development.
Respect - We trust that everyone at the Tenney Grammar School will embrace and emulate mutual respect for all community members as part of their daily participation in this school community. An atmosphere of respect and responsibility for ourselves and our school community is necessary to ensure a safe and supportive learning environment for all students.
Integrity - We realize our students must be challenged to make responsible decisions based on socially appropriate values. We expect that, as our children experiment with social and academic decisions, they will develop and refine their individual characters to make them contributing and effective members in our society at large.
Diversity - We understand our school environment must value and celebrate the diversity of race, culture, and ethnicity within our student population.
It is our belief that accepting and understanding the uniqueness of others and ourselves is essential to our success in a global society.
Excellence - We expect academic excellence from ALL students. Holding each other to high standards of performance and effort is essential to developing life-long learners and productive leaders of our society. We are committed to supporting students in their quest for academic and personal growth.
We continue to take PRIDE in our school and community and know that our efforts are reflected in the enthusiasm, excitement and love of learning that can be seen in the faces of our students.

PPlease be aware of the important information below:
School Times: Students should NOT be dropped off more than 15 minutes early.
Upper School (5-8) 7:50-2:15
Lower School (K-4) 8:30-3:00
Drop off and Dismissal:
In order to have a smooth and safe dismissal for both upper and lower schools it is important that all parents dropping off and picking up students use the parent drop off/ pick up line.
Parent pick-up line times:
In order to get all parents and buses through in a timely fashion it is imperative that Lower School parents arrive at 2:30 or later. Parents who show up earlier will just interfere with the Upper School Dismissal and Bus Routes.
Please be patient while Bus Drivers and the schools become acclimated to the new bus routes. There will be some glitches due to the addition of the Central School (grade 9) and renovation of the High School. Bus Routes are on-line at the Methuen Public Schools Website. Students in grades K-2 must be met at the bus stop by an adult or sibling (5th grade or older).
We have scheduled the following times for Open House. This is an opportunity for you to hear about the school year’s curriculum and teacher expectations. This is not time for parent conferences.
