Our School

Countryside High School is a small community day school that, in conjunction with Tulare Youth Service Bureau (TYSB), helps serve the academic and mental health needs of up to forty high school students in grades 9-12 in the Tulare Joint Union High School District whose academic performance, attitudes, and behaviors warrant immediate and sometimes intense intervention. The staff is a blended team of education and mental health professionals working with parents and guardians to provide a coordinated, structured, nurturing and safe learning environment for all students.

Mission Statement

A small student to teacher ratio is maintained for more individualized instruction. The staff is a blended team of education and mental health professionals working together with parent/guardians to provide a structured and safe learning environment.
