Why Larchmont

Larchmont students reading together

Larchmont is a caring and diverse community where teachers and staff build positive relationships with students. Part of the Tacoma Whole Child Initiative, a partnership with Tacoma Public Schools and University of Washington Tacoma, teachers and staff receive guidance, support, and tools. This includes the implementation of a Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) model, which teaches and rewards students for positive interactions. Teachers also meet often to review and discuss student progress. Together they develop individual plans to ensure all students reach their potential.

Kindergarten Jump Start August 22-24, 2023

Students will meet their teachers, classmates, and get ready for the first day of school!
