Continuous Student Learning in a Caring, Engaging Environment

Welcome

  • Tumwater School District provides a safe, caring, and supportive learning environment for students.  Our academic focus is based on four questions:  What do we want each student to learn?  How will we know if each student is learning it?  How will we respond when a student is experiencing difficulty?  How will we respond if the student already knows it?

  • Backpacks and Supplies Needed?

    Back-to-school season can be a pricey time of year. If you find yourself needing some extra help with school supplies, we encourage families to pick up backpacks filled with supplies for their elementary and middle school students starting the week before school starts at their school office. High school students can access supplies from their counselors after school starts.
