A Message from our Principal

Dear Parents and Students,

It is with regret that I inform you that I will not be seeking renewal of my position as principal of Tenino High School for the coming school year. 

It has been both a pleasure and privilege to serve your students for the past three years, as well as to lead the dedicated teachers and support staff of THS. Together we have achieved several positive changes including a reduction in failure rates through improved communication and instructional strategies, expanded opportunities for both enrichment and remediation, and an increase in extended graduation rate from 70.4% in 2013 to 86% in 2015.

I wish your students every success throughout their high school years, and beyond.
