Our group of HS students had an immense goal when they set out to study Unity and Division, and the students far exceeded what we thought we could cover. After 10 days in Chicago, students walked away with a better understanding of power, privilege, and identity, and what an individual can do to make the world a little bit better.
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.
Halloween is definitely a favorite at TEA, and this year just might have been the best ever. Thank you to TAP and TEA Student Council for organizing an AWESOME Halloween morning for our students!
During this semester-long academic experience, students learned how to preflight a plane while participating in ground school, worked with internal combustion engines in the maintenance bay, and even flew in a fixed-wing airplane for an intro flight lesson. See how lessons in physics come to life at TEA.
Thanks to the parents, teachers, and kids for showing up and making our fall MTB club an amazing experience this year. Bikers learned to navigate the single-track trails of the Tahoe Basin and Truckee. They learned shifting and pedaling best practices, proper body positioning, how to climb / descend technical terrain and much more.
The crew spent three days and two nights backpacking in South Lake in the Freel Peak area, high above beautiful Lake Tahoe.
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.
Some highlights included: unrestricted access to the pits, where students were able to get up close to some of the amazing vintage aircraft on display, touring through military aircraft on static display including a C-17, C-130, and Ch-47, watching the amazing capabilities of an F-16 as it flew low and just below the speed of sound.
This past weekend, a group of TEA Moms ventured into Desolation Wilderness to experience a little taste of what TEA Students experience throughout the year.
We’re fortunate to have an amazing team of educators leading our Tahoe Summer Camps. One of which, Matt Perse, who joined us from Texas. His road trip story to Tahoe to lead our camps this summer is classic TEA stuff.
