Enrollment in Lake Tahoe Unified School District is on the upswing.
So far there are 3,972 students. This compares to last school year at 3,888 kids.
South Tahoe High School has seen a huge spike; going from 942 students to 1,050.
“The high school has popped from last year,” Superintendent Jim Tarwater told Lake Tahoe News. “More publicity is paying off.”
The district has made a concerted effort with the school’s website to promote the facilities that were built in the last few years as well as the programs associated with them.
There are 34 new teachers in the district, as well as new employees in other disciplines.
