Tenacre is a relatively small school with 192 students in Pre-Kindergarten through 6th Grade and has a staff of 60. There are two teachers in every homeroom, plus special subject teachers for art, computer, library, music, PE, science and Spanish. Tenacre also has resource teachers for reading and math, a learning consultant and a technology coordinator. We have our own custodial/maintenance staff and also have our own food service staff. Supporting the operation of the school are the academic, admission, business and development offices.
Tenacre has a warm, friendly work environment. All staff are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities throughout the year, from community service projects with students to talking with the students about a hobby or trip during an assembly, or even attending "tadpole graduation" with the Third Grade in the Spring! Everyone on the staff works to enhance the learning experience of the children from direct teaching, to maintaining the facilities, to providing a nutritious lunch each day. All staff are considered valuable members of the Tenacre community.
