Message from Our Superintendent

December Superintendent Message:

Dear Tolleson Union High School District Community,

As we approach the end of the calendar year and the first semester of the 2023 –24 school year, I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to each member of our school community for your unwavering commitment to education, as evidenced by the passing of our recent bond election. Thanks to you, we will be able to keep our facilities up to date with the latest technology and the best learning environments we can possibly provide for our students.

It also paves the way for the building of a new high school that we hope to bring online in the near future. Like West Point before it, a brand-new high school will invigorate the community and provide a point of pride here on the Westside. Thanks to your support, we will be able to make that dream a reality. We could not have done this without you. Keep following us on social media and our website for the latest progress on the new school and other successes. 

We also know that the month of December marks a time of reflection, celebration, and togetherness that inevitably comes during this holiday season. Despite obstacles we may have encountered throughout the year, our collective dedication to providing a nurturing and enriching learning environment for our students has been a source of pride for us. To that end, I am happy to report that all of our comprehensive schools are “B” schools, and University High School is an “A” school. We should all be proud of our students’ efforts, as well as those of our district and school administration, who also played a big role in our new letter grades. 

Finally, I am always amazed by our students, who continue to inspire us with their curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, as well as the educators, who go above and beyond to ignite that spark of knowledge for our students. Our parents and guardians also play a crucial role in supporting our educational mission. Over the last year, we have learned valuable lessons and grown stronger as a community. As we embrace the holiday season, let us carry the spirit of this special time of year, knowing that together, there is no challenge we cannot overcome.

Wishing you all a joyous holiday season filled with warmth, connection, and the spirit of togetherness.
