Student Life

The close knit community at The Tenney School allows us to develop programs tailored to meet the needs of our students each year. Our goal is to create activities and programs that provide a balance of each student’s overall educational experience.  Both of the programs that are currently in place were created based on student interest, and all activities are led by faculty members and student leaders.


It is considered an honor to be selected to be on The Tenney School Yearbook Team.  The Yearbook team meets as an elective course during the week to plan and construct the yearbook.  The Yearbook class is a team of students selected by their peers and school administrators to promote student priorities on campus.  In addition to constructing the yearbook, the yearbook class is responsible to plan and take the lead on school spirit days, student field trips, during and after school student events, and school social media planning.

National Honor Society

Students who qualify will be allowed to join the National Honor Society (NHS).  The NHS meets throughout the year both during school and as an after school activity. Students in NHS will be required to maintain good grades, and provide proof of service hours to maintain membership.

The NHS elevates a school’s commitment to the values of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. These four pillars have been associated with membership in the organization since its inception in 1921.
