Student Support Services are available for all students with supplemental Student Support Services available for students identified with disabilities or as gifted.  As much as possible, all students are provided support to learn in a regular classroom alongside their peers.  Students that demonstrate potential in academics, creativity, leadership, or the performing arts may qualify for Gifted Services.

Additionally, consultants are in place for services in the areas of Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Psychology as identified on a student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

A full range of extra- and co-curricular activities, as well as interscholastic sports opportunities, are available for the students of the Muckleshoot Tribal School.  For more information about these activities and opportunities, please contact the school.
