Al Talley High School

  • Welcome to Albert Talley Sr. High School, formerly Secondary Learning Center! I hope our site can help you find the necessary information you are looking for about our school. If you do not find the information you are looking for, please call our main office at (425) 204-2100.

    Talley High School was opened in 2012 as the Secondary Learning Center (SLC) to provide additional choices for Renton School District students in grades 7-12. We currently are serving 9th-12th grades.   We like to refer to THS as a “Land of Opportunity” because we offer a variety of flexible learning models to meet individual student needs.  Students and families come to THS for many reasons:  smaller class size, unique scheduling needs, online options, and credit recovery. THS is truly a CHOICE school, meaning:  Students are here because they want to be, not because they were “sent” from another school.  It is for these reasons I am honored to be the Principal of Albert Talley Sr. High.

    The most fundamental difference between THS and the traditional secondary schools is our ability to meet specific student needs.  Basically, we can offer you any class you need for high graduation when you need it (not next semester, not next year).  These classes are offered in various learning models to accommodate students that have work obligations, family commitments, and/or specific learning style preferences.

    Learning is not just for students at THS; the staff is continually refining their professional practice.  We are willing to do “whatever it takes” to get you to your goals of graduation and beyond! 

    In order for students to excel academically, they require support from both the school and family. Our goal of Equity and Access is focused on ensuring that every student and family has access to a range of supports, services, activities, and information that will help them make the most of every opportunity we offer at THS.  We will partner with families to remove any “roadblocks” between you and graduation.

    Again, thank you for visiting our website. If you happen to visiting THS anytime soon, please stop in and introduce yourself. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or thoughts you would like to discuss further. I can be reached at (425) 204-2100 or by emailing at ronald.mahan@rentonschools.us
