Tenino High School

Welcome to THS

At Tenino High School, you will find a thriving high school that provides your student many different educational opportunities. Tenino High School offers the same opportunities as other schools but in a small school environment, which means your student will have a more meaningful experience than at a school of over 1,000 students.

Our focus at Tenino High School is your student. Each day, our dedicated staff is working our best to provide your student the best education we can. At Tenino High School, our teachers go above and beyond to ensure your student achieves academic success. Our classified staff gets to know each student so they can make each day for your student the best it can be.   

We are proud to offer 5 AP and honors courses. Our athletics program is comprehensive, as we offer our students opportunities to compete in 13 varsity sports. The Tenino FFA program is nationally recognized, our band is a state-recognized program, and our choir is also a state-recognized program. Tenino High School is truly an outstanding school, and we look forward to sharing our school with you.

Our Principal's Message

Parents and Guardians,

The first trimester ended on Friday, December 2, and our second trimester began on Monday, December 5. We will mail grade reports for the first trimester during the week of December 12. If you have a concern about your student's grade(s), please contact your student's teacher.  

Winter sports started on December 1 with two victories. Our girls varsity team beat Rochester 41-31, and our girls junior varsity team won 42-21. Wrestling also began on Saturday, December 3 at Ocosta High School. Go Beavers!

In December, we will have two holiday concerts. The band concert is on Wednesday, December 7 in the gymnasium, and our choir concert is on Thursday, December 15 in the commons. Both concerts begin at 7:00 p.m. There is much more going on at THS. Keep an eye on our school calendar for all the events.
