2022-23 Annual Report to Our Community

The Tahoma School District Annual Report to Our Community is developed to provide detailed information on many key areas within our district over the past academic year. In this report, you will find facts and data about Academics, Student Services, Student Enrichment (Athletics & Activities), Finance & Operations, and Partnerships & Communication.

While this report was generated in Spring 2023 with the most current data available, please know that the OSPI Report Card is consistently updated by the State as data becomes available. It includes demographic, attendance, assessment and many other categories of data.



Together, provide the tools and experiences every student needs to create an individual, viable and valued path to lifelong personal success.


Climate & Culture, High Expectations, Partnerships, Equity, Wellness

Tahoma CARES is the product of thousands of students, staff and community members who came together in 2019 to support the Tahoma School Board in creating a five-year strategic plan for student success. Each letter in CARES represents a goal area: Climate & Culture; High Expectations; Partnerships; Equity; and Wellness. 

Tahoma CARES is the Tahoma School District strategic plan for 2020-2025
