Tincher Lauded as 'School to Watch'

For the third time, Tincher Preparatory School has earned the “School to Watch” honor recognizing academic excellence in the middle grades. The honor is given by the California Middle Grades Alliance.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson recently announced that Tincher, a K-8 school, was among 15 schools to retain their designation, while another seven schools won the award for the first time.

These model schools host visitors from California and beyond who are looking for practices that will help them to improve.

The winning schools will be recognized in Sacramento at the California Middle Grades Alliance annual luncheon on Feb. 26, and during the California League of Schools' Annual Conference North, Feb. 26 to March 1.
