Welcome to Tolleson Union HS

Message from our Superintendent

Dear TUHSD Community,

Happy New Year! As we begin 2014 and the second semester of the school year, I am grateful for our students, teachers, support staff, administrators, families, and community members. You are our district’s greatest assets. Because of you, we have much to look forward to in 2014.

Our enrollment has continued to grow, and we anxiously await the 100th day of school on January 23 to determine our yearly growth. We have welcomed new staff to our district this semester and know they will help our students succeed. We continue to refine our programs and offerings. Our schools have begun the process of registering for the 2014-2015 school year. More importantly, our students are seeing improved academic success.

As we kick off the New Year, we will focus on:

Increasing academic success and equity for every student
We will continue our focus on implementing the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards, which are aimed at ensuring our students are prepared for success in college and careers. Under this initiative, there is a single set of clear educational standards for our students. The standards will help our students not to know just content, but to become critical thinkers and collaborative problem solvers. They will know how to explain the work they are doing, and each student in our district – no matter their background, circumstances, or where they live – will have the same access to this high-quality instruction and curriculum.

Building capacity for our district
It’s an exciting time to be a part of TUHSD. Due to enrollment growth, we will continue to expand. While we are welcoming more students, we are also growing our academic offerings. More students will have an opportunity to participate in advanced placement and dual-enrollment classes. Our CTE programs continue to expand due to our involvement with West-MEC. Our MCJROTC programs are helping prepare future leaders. Many of our staff are also continuing their education as they pursue master and doctoral degrees. In 2014, TUHSD is poised to become a leader in education in Arizona.

I look forward to what the new year brings and continuing to meet with staff, students, and families on ways we can ensure a high-quality education for every student, in every classroom, every day.

Yours in education,
