Tuscarora High School is a secondary school located at 5312 Ballenger Creek Pike just south of the corporate boundaries of Frederick, MD, the second-largest city in Maryland, USA.


Tuscarora High School is a relatively new school. In 2003, Tuscarora opened its doors to the classes of 2006 and 2007, bringing the school to half capacity. As of September 2010, the enrollment was 1,511 students.

On Tuesday, May 16, 2006, Tuscarora High School received the first bomb threat in its history. Students were told to stay at home, and those who had already arrived were quickly bused to other area schools. Students were allowed to return only after officials had cleared the building of any threat.

On Monday, October 11, 2010, Tuscarora High School received another bomb threat. The bomb threat stayed in effect for 2 hours while law enforcement searched the campus and seized contraband at this time. Several students were arrested for having drugs in their lockers as well as some who had it on them for distribution. The caller was also arrested.
