Welcome to Tenino

Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

Whether you are searching our website from outside of our school district or as a district resident, it is my privilege to welcome you to the Tenino School District. Tenino schools serve approximately 1,200 students, preschool through 12th grade.

We are a community of wonderful students, caring parents, and a strong dedicated faculty and staff. The school board is a highly motivated group of community members with a passion for improving our district. The district invites the entire community to support the concept of Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow. Together we can ensure that the students of Tenino will be career or college ready when they graduate.

Joe Belmonte, Superintendent of Schools

School Board Values and Beliefs

  • Students: Every student deserves a high quality educational experience. We commit to encourage each student’s dreams, potential, drive, and skills by providing opportunities to become career and college ready. We will make decisions based on what is best for our students.
  • Teaching: We commit to support staff in the rigorous application of research based practice, which should be relevant, engaging, and respectful. All students should be challenged and expected to reach their potential.
  • Learning: Each person in the organization should be responsible for their own learning and growth. We acknowledge that each student learns differently; staff will take the responsibility of meeting the needs of our diverse learners. We commit to expanding and improving programs and program offerings to meet the needs of students.  
  • Community: The board and administration will actively engage with community on an ongoing basis to provide opportunities for meaningful involvement.  
  • Communication: The board, district, and schools will promote positive virtues of the Tenino School District. We will communicate proactively by providing current and meaningful information to all stakeholders across all platforms.  
  • Facilities: All members of the district community will take pride and ownership of district facilities. The board commits to maintaining and improving our facilities.
  • Fiscal Resources: The board is committed to the prudent use of our monies to support students and student achievement. We will look to expand revenue beyond state, federal, and local funding.
  • Extra-Curricular Activities and Athletics: The board supports the role that extra-curricular activities and athletics play in enhancing the development of well-rounded students. Students and families will be encouraged to actively participate in athletics and activities.
