History

Tualatin High School's roots reach back to 1865 when a small red schoolhouse was built in the village. The schoolhouse went on to become Tualatin Elementary School and is now the location of the Tualatin Food Bank. It was replaced in 1900 with a new, two-room school on Boones Ferry Road, which is still a major thoroughfare in the city. A four-year high school program was offered for the first time in 1909 after the school was hoisted up and two more rooms were added beneath. However, the seven-member class of 1936 was the last class to graduate from the old Tualatin School. After that, students were sent to nearby high schools in Sherwood and Tigard. The move was further solidified in 1969 when Tualatin residents voted to officially join Tigard School District 23J.

In 1990, following rapid growth in Tualatin, the name of the district changed to the Tigard-Tualatin School District, a signal of Tualatin's emerging importance in the area's academic structure. Two years later, in 1992, the new Tualatin High School opened on a 64-acre (260,000 m2) campus. Students from area junior high schools voted on the school colors and mascot.

For several years, the school lacked a swimming pool and auditorium, as well as proper spectator stands for its state-of-the-art football field. As a result, many extracurricular activities, such as plays and sporting events, took place on the grounds of the school's rival, Tigard High School. This was corrected in summer 1998, when the school completed its new sports stadium. Later that year, it opened its own auditorium and swim center. Since then, the softball and baseball facilities and a multi-purpose field have been converted to turf.

The new T.E.C.H. Wing (Tualatin Engineering, Computers, and Health) opened in spring 2006. In the 2018–2019 school year, construction was in place all around the school to add a new main office, an addition to the T.E.C.H. Wing, extensions to the commons, new classrooms, and a new locker room for the boys and girls.
