Our Long Term aim is to serve our Tanque Verde High Community by building transparent communication between stakeholders (parents, teachers, students, and administration), growing together to best serve the educational needs of the students.

Our Goals for the current school year are:

Grow parental involvement with new parent participation

Grow fundraising with a fundraising committee

Grow partnerships with TVUSD family businesses and related employers

Grow support for our teachers/staff/admin even as we adapt to the new ‘normal’ of social distancing

Grow in our communications between the school and PTSG so we can all understand what the priorities and needs of the school are so that we may best assist


    • When TVUSD first opened TVHS, it was on a shared campus with Emily Gray Junior High on the current site. The parents of the joint school started the TVHS and EGJH Parent Teacher Student Group Inc. June 2006

    • Our 501c3 status was established August 2007

    • Eventually EGJH moved to its current location in 2011

    • The parent association became the TVHS Parent Teacher Student Group Inc. (TVHS PTSG)

What we do

    • Celebrate the teachers, administration, and staff throughout the year with 'Tasty Tuesday' breakfasts, luncheons, and appreciation activities.

    • Facilitate donations of time, money, and business connections as well as fund raise to directly benefit the TVHS community with a student benefit focus.

    • Provide Classroom Setup Stipends.

    • Run two small grant funding periods to provide materials that are most needed.
