Our School

Since 2002, Tesla has provided a learning environment that is caring, inspirational, educational and fun.

The staff members continually reflect on how to make the Tesla experience rewarding and enjoyable for our students while providing them with the individual attention they need and deserve.

And with regular feedback and guidance from the Tesla Charter Board, the staff stays up-to-date with what is evolving in business and industry.

All of this adds up to a personal world-class STEM education for all Tesla students.
