Middle School Information

TCAPS Middle Schools

Traverse City Area Public Schools has two middle schools, Traverse City East and Traverse City West. Both are organized as a "school-within-a-school" concept. Each wing office has a team consisting of an administrator, school counselor, and an administrative assistant. This team uses a collaborative approach to guide each student through the middle school years. Continuity is achieved by having the same wing office staff and resources supporting students as they progress from year to year.
