While on a field study in Chicago to learn about what divides us as humans and ways to unite us in spite of those differences, 10th graders at Tahoe Expedition Academy had a roundtable discussion with activist and mayoral candidate Ja’Mal Green.
Our Lower School had an extra special Friday Forum this past week as the 3rd Grade, Martis Peak Crew, presented their “Little Library” to share with the entire school. Thank you to Truckee mayor, Carolyn Wallace for attending!
Are you interested in the “why” of the highly varied ecosystems in California? If so, this is the kind of TEA learning experience that’s just for you.
It’s hard work being a Pre-K kiddo at TEA. You’re always on the move meeting with real-world experts and going on amazing adventures. Granted there is an optional nap period each day, but somehow you manage to fit it all in.
This past week the Middle and High School students had their Student Body Elections for the first time ever in the new building. It was exciting to see our students fill the new space and share their vision for the school. Meet the students and learn more about what they each hope to accomplish this year.
This crew of students and teachers hiked 50 miles over 5 days and 4 nights from Meeks Bay to Tahoe City on the Tahoe Rim Trail. Along the way, they’d face physical and mental adversity head-on.
For their first semester learning expedition, our 1st-Grade Chickadee Crew is studying the tools people use and the work people do. To experience this first-hand, the students took a trip to the Truckee Farmers Market.
Our middle and high school students continue with the TEA tradition of tackling real-world problems right from the get go this year. MS Students are looking at the balance of power in our community. HS students are exploring water scarcity, unity and diversity, and the psychology of group mentality vs the individual mindset.
Taking advantage of the beautiful landscape and rich cultural history of the Tahoe-Truckee area, the entire high school spent a day diving into historical concepts related to our local region.
We invite you to meet these graduates and a few of our faculty in this video recap. We did our best to condense the 2.5-hour ceremony down to 6 minutes.
Every Friday afternoon, no matter rain, sleet, or snow, you will find our CommuniTEA gathered together outside. And in the middle of this gathering of students, teachers, staff, parents, and experts you will find a student, sometimes as young as 3-years-old, proudly holding a talking stick while addressing the crowd.
