TCHS has an employability growth platform called eOS. Assisting our students in becoming college and career ready is important to us and is part of our mission. Teachers monitor students on the following three criteria: responsibility/dependability, appropriate use of technology, and communication. These scores help students set individual goals for improving their employability in the community, as well as for rewards within their classroom and the Academy. Eos also provides students with an opportunity to learn, self-assess, and improve 21st century skills.
