Principal's Message

Welcome to Talley High, home of the Otters

Albert Talley Sr. High School is one of four comprehensive high schools in the Renton School District.  We are located in the Skyway area and the school reflects our vibrant and diverse community. Our school has a tradition of excellence and high expectations.  Academically, Talley High offers access to a variety of educational options to ensure all students can be successful in graduating with options.  Most importantly, Talley has more staff (smaller class size) and specializes in tailoring programming to each student’s needs.

For the 21-22 school year Talley is offering 6th-12th graders the option for "Virtual (At-Home) Learning” due to the continuing Covid 19 pandemic.  The Talley staff are uniquely qualified to provide remote/online instruction, because we have been doing it for many years for high schoolers. 

If you have any questions, please contact us anytime. We are proud of our school and look forward to a successful school year!
