Message from Principal

Dear Class of 2027, Welcome!

We are so excited to meet you and help you transition to your high school journey. This is my 25th start of a school year as an educator, and my 6th start in TUSD! I look forward to all the joys and challenges a new school year brings. Tucson High has been wonderful over the past year since I started this journey. I look forward to getting to know you, your parents and cannot wait for all your adventures in athletics, academics, classroom projects, and fine arts performances in our auditorium!

If you are a magnet student in the sciences or fine arts, we will ensure you are enrolled in magnet courses and fulfilling your commitments as a magnet student.

I can’t wait to say hello in person! Go Badgers! Go Class of 2027!

With Hope, Love and Courage,your Principal,
Elizabeth Rivera

What Makes Us Special
Tucson High is a magnet school with programs in natural sciences and visual and performing arts. We have an active relationship with nearby University of Arizona. Some classes are taught by university professors, and some science classes visit the university for authentic learning experiences.

We are the district’s oldest high school; our halls are steeped in history, and we boast of a strong sense of community pride, with alumni supporting the school and sporting Badger red and white.

In addition to the magnet programs, we offer career and technical instruction including classes in welding, auto mechanics, digital media and more. We provide varied interscholastic programs and clubs for just about every interest.
