Welcome to Tidioute Community Charter School
The Tidioute Community Charter School, located in Victorian Tidioute, Pennsylvania, is a rural K4-12 School. With a maximum enrollment of 300 students, TCCS prides itself on small class sizes with more individualized attention, Kindergarten for 4 and 5 year olds, and a state of the art technology program. The students are immersed in a vigorous curriculum that promotes project-based learning with a focus on the environment and community.
Nestled amid the Allegheny National Forest, along the Allegheny River , TCCS is the ideal setting for students interested in the environment. With our hands on approach, students have the opportunity to experience Science and Math as they never have before. As the centerpiece for the Tidioute Community, TCCS promotes civic responsibility to our students by instilling in them a lifelong desire to make a difference in their communities. A mentorship program for grades 9-12 also gives the students the opportunity to receive real world experiences in a field of their choice in and around Warren County. At the Tidioute Community Charter School our goal is to provide a world-class education in a small town environment.
Third Grade takes a crack at Geodes
After studying a unit on rocks and volcanoes, and also reading our weekly story "Rocks in His Head", we had surprise visitor, Mr. Lewis. Mr. Lewis came and further discussed rocks and minerals. He brought in many different samples of rocks he has collected around the area and told the students what was special about each of the rocks. He also brought in geodes that he had collected from different parts of the United States this past summer. He allowed each pair of students to break open the geodes and discover the different crystal formations that were inside. Each child was left with their own geode to take home.
On May 14th, students from K4 through 7th grade visited the Fish Hatchery in Tionesta. There they learned about the wildlife in our local waterways. They also reviewed water safety and (apparently) about Bears!
