The original Mount Tahoma High School was built in 1961. In 2004, Mount Tahoma opened its new buildings that were designed to increase student achievement and staff effectiveness by creating a personalized learning environment that helps to strengthen the relationship between students and staff. To do that, the school organized into four independent learning academies, which house 400 to 450 students each.
In addition to the new buildings, the 2004 construction project added new high-quality athletic facilities. The crowning jewel among those was the new football stadium, which seats more than 5,000 spectators, and has become a go-to site to host high school athletic events in and around the Pierce County area.
