Tse’Yaato’ High School also believes that all students have strengths and limitless potential. As a school, we help students discover their strengths and how to capitalize on them while also learning strategies to overcome weaknesses to become successful in whatever they choose to pursue in life. Service learning projects, character development activities, career and college exploration, community mentoring activities, and on the job training experiences are just a few of the educational activities provided by Tse’Yaato’ High School which support that belief.

Also available at Tse’Yaato’ High School is our Teen-age parent program. TAPP is a separate alternative education program for pregnant and parenting teens (moms & dads) who want to continue their education, while remaining close to their babies. In the program, students may bring their baby with them to school and continue working on the needed credits for a high school diploma by participating in Independent study and online tutorial courses (Plato).
