Overview

Below are the answers to the Tahoe Elementary specific questions asked at the January 30th Community Forum. Please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions page for our universal list of question and answers. 

 

What do you think about putting elementary kids by the high school?

West Campus High School – SCUSD’s highest-performing high school – was moved to its current location next to Mark Twain in 1984. In the years since, relationships beneficial to students at both schools have developed. For example, Mark Twain students benefit from after-school tutoring by West Campus students, who benefit from the experience of helping their community.

Why not close Mark Twain and expand West Campus?

Tahoe is more under-enrolled that Mark Twain, and therefore higher on the list of schools to be closed. Tahoe’s closure would grow Mark Twain’s enrollment.
