Principal's Message

Dear Parents, 

Welcome to the La Tijera TK-8 Academy of Excellence Charter School Website. It is our goal that you will find this site both informative and helpful throughout the year as we work together to help your child meet their academic and social potential. 

In light of the Covid - 19 pandemic much of your child’s experience will take place digitally. However, our commitment to your child’s success remains the same. We look forward to providing all of our students with an experience that provides them with the tools necessary for their growth and development.

At La Tijera our staff’s commitment to your child’s academic and social growth remains the same and is exemplified in our mission statement, which states:

The faculty and staff of La Tijera K-8 Academy of Excellence Charter School is committed to preparing each student for growth so that they may excel academically and socially by providing them with a rigorous standards based curriculum through research based instruction in a safe and welcoming environment. 

As your child’s Principal, I look forward to working together with your family and our staff to ensure that your child has the best academic and social experience possible. 

Please feel free to contact me either by email or phone if you have any questions regarding our programs or your child’s progress. 

Thank you,

Brent Tilley
