School Notes

  • Tacoma Baptist Schools offer a Christ-centered education that encourages students, Preschool (3's) through 12th grade, to develop as disciples of Jesus and leaders in the community as well as to engage the culture for the Kingdom.  
  • Our students benefit from small class sizes and a welcoming, family atmosphere. They are challenged to achieve in the classroom by caring teachers who know them and push them to reach their full potential.  
  • At TBS, every class is taught from a Biblical perspective. Daily Bible classes and weekly chapel services instill the foundational truth of the Gospel, encourage students to make their faith their own, and equip them to defend it.  We are passionate about providing our students with an education that equips them to succeed spiritually, academically, and socially.  Let us partner with you in making the best educational decision for your child.
