North Tahoe High named among ‘2019 California Distinguished Schools’

State Superintendent Tony Thurmond announced the 2019 California Distinguished Schools recently and North Tahoe High School is one of only three schools, and the only high school, in all of Placer County selected for this honor.

The California Distinguished Schools program recognizes schools who achieve exceptional student performance for two consecutive school years or closing the achievement gap between two school years.

TTUSD’s Superintendent Chief Learning Officer Rob Leri shared, “This is a very deserving honor and a tribute to the hard work and commitment of the leadership, teachers, staff, students, and parents at North Tahoe High.”
