Welcome to Tolleson Union HS

Message from our Superintendent

Dear TUHSD Community,

I have spent a great deal of time visiting our schools during the first month of this school year. Watching the buses roll up to school entrances and seeing our students enter school is a great way to start a day. Every time I visit a campus, I see caring administrators, teachers, and staff working hard to make students feel welcomed and supported. Our staff is challenging all students to achieve at higher levels. I feel a special sense of pride as I visit teachers in their classrooms and watch them teaching interactive lessons to engaged students. I believe this pride is a TUHSD tradition. We are a community who continues to dedicate our time and talents to ensure that our students are preparing for a brighter future.

As we work together to prepare our students for the future, I ask that you consider the following.
 

  • We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. Excellence is the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction, and skillful execution. Through constant attention to academic preparation, co-curricular involvement, and personal development, our students can and will succeed this year.
  • Successful preparation for life is a significant challenge, demanding a well-developed capacity to be self-directed and self-managing and the ability to negotiate obstacles. We must work to help our students plan their time effectively. They must accept responsibility for their learning, decisions, and actions. This acceptance of responsibility will help them as they navigate the future. 
  • Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance. As staff works with students to establish goals, they are encouraging them to stretch beyond their comfort zones. We will support our students in their endeavors, and TUHSD will work with students to persevere as they struggle to achieve. 
  • The success of a school is not determined by what the school gives you, but by what you give back. Show your enthusiasm and support for projects that enhance the quality of life for other members of the school family and community. Give with no strings attached, and you will receive in the same manner. 

 
I am proud to be a part of a caring community committed to Leading Every Day.

Yours in education,
