Tinian Jr. Sr. High School


Tinian Middle High School


Executive Summary


Tinian Jr. Sr. High School (TJSHS) sits on over 5 hectares of land in the heart of San Jose Village adjacent to Tinian Elementary School and the Tinian Northern Marianas College campus, surrounded by San Jose Church, public library, hospital, police and fire department, other government agencies, private businesses and residents of our community.  It is from this location that our students, parents, and members of the community interact daily to provide our students with the best possible education that available funding can provide.  Tinian High School was established in 1989.  The Jr. High School was merged with the high school in 1998 for financial purpose.  There was a substantial savings with merging the two schools, rather than having two separate campuses.

As of June 2020, TJSHS has a student population of 235, which is comprised of the following ethnicities: 52% Chamorro, 40% Filipino, and the remaining 8% are Bangladesh, Caucasian, Chinese, Mexican, Korean, and FSM. 100% of students are on the free meal program. 12 students or 5% of our students are in the Special Education program and 36 students or 15% are classified as English Language Learners.

The total student enrollment for TJSH is 235.  Breakdown by grade-level is as follows:  7th Grade (40), 8th Grade (43), 9th Grade (50), 10th Grade (36), 11th Grade (37), 12th Grade (29).

The faculty and staff is composed of 10 administrative staff and 23  instructional staff. 
The administrative staff includes the principal, vice-principal, school counselor, administrative assistant, registrar, school aide, librarian aide, trades and maintenance, a Child Nutrition Program Food Monitor, and one MOU staff.

The instructional staff includes 16 classroom teachers,  4 instructors, and 3 teacher aides.  43% hold a master’s degree, 30% hold a bachelor’s degree, and the remaining 26% hold an associate’s degree or lower.

The chart below shows the number of students performing at “Exceeding” and “Ready” on the ACT Aspire Summative assessment.  Because of the closure of schools on March 16, 2020 due to COVID19, the ACT Aspire Summative Assessment was cancelled.  The results for SY1920 is based on the ACT Aspire Interim 3 Assessment that was administered between January-February 2020.  The 6-year trend indicates the average percentage of students performing in English (60%), Writing (data is included with results for English), Reading (27%), Math (23%), and Science (24%).
