Mike Tenney: The Tenney School

The Tenney School

Welcome to The Tenney School, where we believe in the power of tailored instruction for every student. Our custom-made educational plan is designed to meet the diverse academic, emotional, and social needs of each individual student, ensuring that they are met where they are and accelerated to their highest potential. We firmly believe that students who have ample one-to-one time with their teachers will fully achieve their academic potential. Our teachers get to know their students well and are better able to leverage their strengths, repair weaknesses, hone successful study habits, and develop their cognitive skills. Students who have spent time one-to-one with their instructors know better how to approach academics and achieve success.

Our philosophy of individual student attention has been the foundation of our program since our founding in 1973 by my parents, George and Judy Tenney. This approach has led to the success of hundreds of students who have grown, matured, and developed skills to be successful in both school and life.

Thank you for your interest in learning more about our unique learning program. We look forward to hearing form you and helping your child reach their full potential!
