At Tilden, we wish the best for all students. Tilden has made great progress the past 3 years. Attendance has increased by 11%, misconducts have decreased by 36%, our Freshmen-On-Track rate has increased 23%, test scores have improved, and we have engaged families towards the goal of graduating all students college and career ready.  In 2015-2016, we will offer CTE Culinary Arts and have a partnership with Genesys Works.. Tilden is becoming a premier neighborhood school.  Two key features we have implemented are:

4x4 Block Schedule: 

Tilden students take 4 classes per semester and earn 1 full credit at the end of the semester.This college-like structure allows students to earn 8 credits per year instead of 7 at other schools. Students have more room in their schedule to take AP courses, Dual Credit Courses, or participate in work-study programs.
