A Message from the Principal

Mr. Gregory Gwudz


Welcome to Leonard J. Tyl Middle School, we are thrilled you are here!  Middle school is such an important and exciting time for students as they transition from the nurturing environment of elementary school to the rigors of high school.   Our caring and talented staff at Tyl work tirelessly to help meet the needs of all students during these important years.  

Tyl’s core values are centered on Respect, Responsibility, Pride and Safety- together those values encompass the Tyl Way.  These values, coupled with a commitment to a strong partnership with you as parents/guardians, as well as the entire Montville community, help to ensure our students grow into well rounded, independent and responsible citizens.  

As a Montville graduate, the opportunity to lead an amazing school like Tyl, in such a caring and supportive community,  is something that gives me great pride. 

On behalf of the Tyl Middle School administration, faculty, and staff, we look forward to working with you.
