8 Parent Reviews for North Tahoe High School

While size limits the number of electives and foreign languages available, it enhances the involvement of teachers and parents.

Graduated from NTHS recently. Found that the quality of the school and its academic programs was not nearly as high as other schools that I have since been in contact with. Teachers were OK, but the availability of a diverse offering of courses is very lacking due to small school size.

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
