Tighe Recognized as a 2017 National Blue Ribbon School!



It is my great honor to announce that Eugene A. Tighe Middle School has been recognized by the U. S. Department of Education as a 2017 Blue Ribbon School recipient as an Exemplary High Performing School.  This achievement is a tremendous reflection of the high quality programs offered at Tighe, as well as the outstanding performance of our students.  We are the only middle school in Atlantic County to ever win this recognition, which began back in 1982.  I am very proud of our current and former students, as well as our dedicated staff that has made this possible.  I am also thankful for the continuous support that we receive from our families, the members of our school board, and our Superintendent Mr. DiNicola.  Later this fall we will plan a special event to celebrate this phenomenal award, but in the meantime I hope the entire Tighe community will feel pride in our school!
