2020-21 updates to TPS English. We're changing our approach to grade 9 English by treating it as a fresh start rather than a continuation of middle school English. We also now have a dedicated writing course in every grade level from grade 5 to AP/college. Go here for more details...

2020-21 updates to TPS AP courses. On a select basis, we're taking some of our high-scoring AP courses from two days per week to one day per week of live instruction. We have found that students at this level are already self-studying and need more guidance but less direct instruction. We also realize that most upper HS students need AP courses that are easier to schedule into their already packed school year. We are making this change for 2020-21 primarily with AP history and government courses (plus a few others).
