ACT Question of the Day

"The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be"  

Ralph Waldo Emerson, (1803-1882), philospher, poet, author, essayist


Welcome to Tuscola High School and the 2016-2017 school year. TCHS is the focal point of the Tuscola community which affords our students many opportunities. It is a privilege to serve the district as the high school principal for a fifth year. Our team of dedicated faculty and staff have been instrumental in providing students with a positive school culture that regularly recognizes achievement. Methods of recognition include Breakfast Club, Tuscola Traits T-shirts, bracelets and incentive days, as well as positive phone calls home. This is a testament to the commitment of everyone on the TCHS team and the extraordinary level of support from our community organizations.

Our goal is to provide our students with resources necessary for academic improvement and success. However, this is only part of the equation. Please remember that learning to get along with people is of equal importance in the development of the total educational experience. The reputation of Tuscola High School will only be maintained by the efforts of students and family members alike, to insure our students realize the importance of service, treating others with respect and, most importantly, seeing themselves as having the ability to reach their goals.

Students, please take advantage of the diverse selection of extra-curricular organizations and become involved with service projects. Stay busy, stay organized and committed to the pursuit of excellence. Four years will pass by very quickly. 

This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)


With Warrior Pride,
Mr. Brad Allen
