  • Yearbook UpdatePosted 04/13/2020 @ 2:17 PM

    At this time, we are dependent on the publishing company in Missouri.  As long as they remain open, which they are, they are producing books.  Needless to say, all across the country yearbook deadline have been missed by schools, and Tucson is one as well.  We are continuing to press forward, and are getting updates from the plant on a regular basis. Our sales representative in Phoenix requested all advisors provide the company with their personal cell phone numbers and address, so they can notify us when the books are done and ready to ship.


    TUSD has directed yearbook advisors to have their respective companies to deliver the book shipments to a district warehouse, where they will be received and stored during the school closure.


    The Principle, my department chair and I will be working out a distribution plan for all students that have purchased their book, or still would like to purchase a book, to receive books, as soon as we receive permission to release them.


    Students or parents still wishing to purchase a book can buy it through the School Payment Portal at the bottom of the main page of www.tusd1.org .


    Again, at this time we are continuity plan and as soon as we have further information we will let the school know for publication.

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.
