Stadium is challenging and preparing all students for success after high school. Every student will take either a College in the High School (CHS) course or an Advanced Placement (AP) course by graduation. We offer over 20 unique courses to choose from – every student can find classes to fit their individual interest and talents.
Stadium maintains College Board standards for all AP courses and has the highest AP test scores in the Tacoma Public School district. Additionally, courses like AVID and College Bound are ensuring students have the individual support they need to not only get into college, but to thrive in college.
Stadium is the first high school in the Tacoma School District to offer a Capstone diploma.

The goal of Career & Technical Education (CTE) is to provide hands-on learning that prepares students for careers, high education, and employment. Stadium’s CTE classes take hands-on learning to the 21st century by offering classes that are relevant to our future workforce.
Stadium helps students discover their passions and explore their interests all while gaining valuable skills. In addition, most CTE courses can earn college credit. Explorer the Career & Technical Education Program Planner, or visit the Stadium College & Career Center for more information.
The arts are alive and well at Stadium High School. Students are encouraged to express themselves, explore their passions, and hone their skills in our performing arts courses.
The Stadium Wind Ensemble has been selected to perform at the 2017 National Concert Band Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana. Out of the 250+ recorded auditions sent in, Stadium was chosen 1 out of 16 bands in the country to perform. This performance is one of the highest honors to be bestowed upon a band program. The students are working hard to perform their hour-long concert in Clowes Auditorium (Bulter University), a concert hall that seats 2200, as well as live streamed on the internet. In addition to practicing, the students are fundraising for the $66,000 trip.
