To transmit knowledge and culture through which young people learn in areas necessary to their continuing development.” These words come to life on a daily basis at TPHS. As a multi-economic, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural school population, the school embraces each new freshman family and celebrates their strengths. The faculty is sensitive to the needs of students and families and helps each student be a productive citizen and learner through academic and social programs.
Academically, the curriculum is in total compliance with and aligned to state and national goals. New students are given a school program that addresses current needs and provides for academic improvement. Graduation requirements have been increased. The junior/senior curriculum has been strengthened, and innovative courses have been added to ensure student success in mathematics and English language development. Teachers in the areas of physical education, social studies, science, and family consumer science are developing elective courses. Gifted students are identified yearly and are presented a more challenging course of study along with extra opportunities to broaden the academic program. Yearly, national and state testing as well as continued criterion-referenced testing reveal that individual scores are on the rise for students. The amount of monetary scholarships awarded to graduating seniors is a tangible indicator that TPHS students are successful.
