Smarter Balanced Assessments (SBA) Testing is happening!
Sophomores & Juniors will be testing in math, ELA and science and are scheduled for April 18th, 19th (Math), April 25th and 26th (ELA) and May 26th (science/Juniors only).

All 10th graders are encouraged to participate as it is the quickest way to meet the Washington State Graduation Pathway requirements.

11th and 12th graders who did not meet standard as a 10th grader should plan to re-test.

Tahoma High School will administer these tests during a special testing schedule in the morning of each day listed below. Our adjusted bell schedule will follow testing. Students will not be missing any class time during testing this year. Please help us minimize interruption by ensuring your student is on campus for these testing dates. Students who will not be testing will be on campus doing alternative learning experiences.
