Reshaping Education

Reimagining Community

At TCHS a student becomes part of a community where all voices are valued and student agency encouraged. Inspired by the Montessori approach, TCHS students thrive in a safe and supportive environment, rich with opportunities to explore their interests.

TCHS teachers provide a stimulating education that keeps pace with each learner’s personality, needs, and goals. TCHS supports students’ academic, social, and emotional development; a well-rounded education creates responsible, successful adults who contribute to our diverse world.
