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,

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! Our first trimester began yesterday, and we are off to a strong start. Opening day was very smooth, and we are embracing our ASB theme this year of a “New Beginning.” This year marks the 105th anniversary for Tenino HS, and to bring in the school year we have re-framed the student class pictures from years past, and we have them on display in the commons. When you visit the high school, please stop into the commons and take a look at the class photos. It really is a stroll back in time. We have also re-modeled the front office to make our school more welcoming. We think you and your students will be happy with the improvements. I would personally like to thank our maintenance department for their work over the summer in making this happen.  

As we begin the school year I would like to remind all parents about Skyward and two of its tools. With your Skyward password you are able to review your student’s academics and attendance. 

Chromebooks will be distributed to all students beginning Monday, September 12. Students who have completed the home use requirements by 3:00 p.m. on Friday, September 9 will be eligible to take devices home on September 12. You can find all forms needed for Chromebook distribution on the Tenino District News page or students can pick up the forms in our library. 

I am very excited to see all of our activities and athletics at Tenino High School. Please follow me on Twitter. If you see me on campus or at an event, please stop by and say hi. We are looking forward to an outstanding 2016-17 school year.

Be sure to check out my previous messages.
