No. TST is a college preparatory school with a rigorous academic curriculum. We do not have programs for students with discipline, behavioral, or drug and alcohol related problems.
We want you to experience TST for yourself. We think one of the best ways for a prospective student to learn what it's like to be a student at TST is to visit on a regular school day.
Families interested in exploring TST may wish to schedule a parent tour. Tours are designed for parents and are given during the school day to allow you to make valuable observations about our school community, learning environment, and philosophy.
Tours last approximately 30 minutes. A typical tour begins in the Admission Office with a walking tour of our campus, a visit to classrooms in the division(s) you are interested in, a brief meeting with a teacher, division head, or principal. There are many opportunities to ask questions.
To schedule a campus tour, please contact the Admission Office.
