Our Motto: “Tully C. Knoles School, Where Every Student is a Scholar.”
Tully C. Knoles has been a fixture in Lincoln Unified School District since it opened in 1957. It is the educational home to approximately 650 transitional kindergarten through eighth grade students. More than thirty-five teachers provide educational and social experiences that help guide students and ready them to become productive citizens in our community and around the world. Tully C. Knoles School, or TCK as staff, students and family members affectionately know it, is name for a revered and respected President of the University of the Pacific.
We believe that every student at TCK is a scholar. We have a caring and dedicated staff. We know at TCK, that it is only through a partnership with families and the community that we can assist students in reaching their true potential.
The most unique feature of Tully C. Knoles is the quarter acre pond that simulates some of the flora and fauna that one would have found in pre-Columbian times complements our extensive Life-Lab. The Life-Lab and pond have been certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a “Schoolyard Habitat.” At any given time, you might find a large number of students tending gardens and observing wildlife.
Tully C. Knoles has become a “school to watch” in the Stockton community because of continued academic improvements because of TCK’s unique and effective Scholar Plan. In 2016, Tully C. Knoles was named as one of the top schools in Stockton for closing the achievement gap by the index created by Michael and Susan Dell Foundation and developed in partnership with Education Cities and GreatSchools. We believe that all children can excel in school when given the opportunity.
