    In partnership with parents and community, Tanglewood Middle School will provide a quality education by empowering students to become caring, self-sufficient, globally-conscious citizens who value innovation and sustainability, and believe in education as a lifelong process.
    OUR MOTTO:  Educate. Innovate. Renew.
    Tanglewood Middle School began in 1929 as Grady Elementary on the corner of Westheimer and Post Oak. In 1950, the school moved to its current location, and opened a brand-new campus to serve the families of this growing community.
    The elementary school was closed in 1979, but reopened in 1992 as Grady Middle School. In 2012, construction was completed on Phase 1 of a $15 million reconstruction project which saw the original school building replaced with a state-of-the-art, two-story main building. Three years later, Phase 2 of the rebuild completed the campus' main classroom wing.
