Most students attending THS do just that- attend THS. And most students attending Tigard Tualatin Online Academy really only attend that school, as well. But there is actually an option in between. The district also provides the opportunity for students to attend both online and regular high school at the same time. These students are called dual-attendance or dual-enrollment students. It can be a bit hectic, but it is possible to do it.  Trust me; I know all about it because I am one of those students. Here is a sneak peek at my weekly schedule.
