Truckee High School is a community high school that offers high-level curriculum delivered in a small school setting. We provide diverse and rigorous programming for our scholars and each year we make enhancements so our students get the best educational experience possible, and are college and career ready. We focus on well-rounded students and offer 16 different sports and 14 clubs for students to choose from as well.
Truckee High offers several career educational pathways that utilize the nationally recognized Project Lead the Way curriculum. A Biomedical Science pathway with Introduction to the Principles of Biomedical science and Human Body Systems, and an Engineering pathway with Introduction to Engineering Design and Principles of Engineering. Students are exposed to a very comprehensive curriculum with hands-on projects and high-level lab studies. Capstone classes are offered at Sierra College where our students can earn dual credits – credits for both high school and college!
We also have a project-based learning program called PEAK (Precision, Endurance, Action, and Kindness). PEAK is a two-year project-based learning program offered to ninth and tenth graders. In ninth-grade students have a combination of English and Global Studies and in tenth grade Computer Science and River Ecology are combined. These classes give students the opportunity to participate in an integrated approach and provide the opportunity of community involvement.
With funding from Measure A we are able to provide 13 Advanced Placement (AP) courses that put our scholars on a path to post-graduation success. Measure A also supports our student’s physical and mental wellbeing with funding for courses in health and physical education.
