Tulsa Resource and Adolescent Intervention Center of Excellence (TRAICE)
TRAICE Academy, a middle and high school, is part of the alternative school network in Tulsa Public Schools. We are focused on creating an environment where students learn behavior strategies, develop social skills and thrive academically through many forms of instruction.
At TRAICE, we see each student as an individual with his or her own needs and learning style. We develop lifelong learners by using differentiated instruction in our classrooms and curriculum that is based on student needs, interests, and real-life situations.
Our staff places a strong emphasis on restorative practices in order to work with students to develop their own social-emotional knowledge and awareness. We are faithfully dedicated to the success of each student. Each member of the faculty is selected because of their expertise and training in teaching non-traditional student learners.
TRAICE Academy is a place where we agree to come together respectfully to learn, grow, and feel safe. Through our words and actions, we seek cooperation, safety, and being valued.
TRAICE Academy’s mission is to provide a safe and structured environment in which students will learn to manage their own behavior, enhance their social skills, and advance their academic pursuits.
Students are enrolled at TRAICE based on placement recommendations from the Tulsa Public School's Discipline Review Committee.
The required TRAICE enrollment is a minimum of nine weeks or a maximum of 18 weeks. Exit transitions are facilitated at the end of the student's placement and include both staff from TRAICE and the receiving site as well as special education staff as needed.
TRAICE Academy hosts mandatory orientation for students and parents on Monday and Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. weekly.
