The Tenney School
The Tenney School is meant for students whose talents clash with the traditional school schedule and format. Students meet one-on-one with their teachers, which gives them the education they need while allocating more time to their talents, such as athletics.

The Tenney School in Detail

Students can earn a Minimum, Recommended, or Distinguished Diploma. Students who receive either the Recommended or Distinguished Diplomas earn 26 credits: English (4), math (4), science (4), social studies (4), PE (1), foreign language (2-3), fine arts (1), speech (.5), and electives (4.5-5.5). The difference between these two diplomas is 2 foreign language credits for Recommended vs. 3 for Distinguished and 5.5 elective credits for Recommended vs. 4.5 for Distinguished. The Minimum Diploma is given to students who earn 22 credits, having fewer credits for math (3) and science (2) and no credits for foreign language. One credit is equivalent to one year of study.
The Tenney School has historically followed the graduation requirements outlined by the state, and the requirements outlined above reflect the state graduation requirements prior to the implementation of the Foundation Program. It is unclear at this time whether and to what extent Tenney will adopt the Foundation Program.
