School Notes

  • Lake Tahoe School seeks to instill in our students the love of learning and the will to use knowledge productively, courageously, compassionately. We strive to educate knowledgeable students who value learning, possess strong study skills and work habits, embrace intellectual and aesthetic enrichment, respect themselves and others, and aspire to become still more knowledgeable and responsible members of the world community. We aim to explore the unique educational opportunities of the rich, variegated Tahoe environment in our quest to cultivate a sense of responsibility for, and celebration of, the diversity of life and nature all around us.
