Lake Tahoe School, originally founded in 1997 under the name Incline Academy with a mission to provide a carefully articulated, highly academic program, quickly grew, adding grades yearly, into a Pre-K through Eighth Grade School by 2001. Incline Academy became Lake Tahoe School (LTS) in 2002 and then within a year, its visionary Board of Trustees, acquired a new three-story building with room for 24 classrooms and appreciable office space, allowing for the current school year (2023-2024) enrollment of 235 students.
Today, a highly committed team of teachers, administrators, and staff sits at the core of LTS’s success. A dedicated Board of Trustees, steadfastly working to support the creation of a superlative independent school in the Lake Tahoe region, helps to guide and support LTS and the Head of School.
Lake Tahoe School is rooted in the vision of being a thriving educational community of engaged students, passionate educators, and connected families. Lake Tahoe School is accredited by The Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS) and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
