Tolleson Union High School has great people, whether you're new or have been around for a while, you are welcomed, and what a great feeling to be recognized. It hosts amazing assemblies, and celebrations! Although the campus isn't advanced in technology nor other things high in cost, it sure does a great job on bringing everyone together. I enjoyed my four high school years here and will definitely keep it in memory.
I love the tolleson high school district family, all schools are very welcoming. The district has given me a lot of resources. Tolleson union high school district has so many clubs and organizations. For example, I’m part of the Jobs for Arizona’s graduates program and they help kids to develop educational,personal, and vocational skills to help kids be on track in school. Many schools also have sports, and you find each school very competitive. The teachers from my district are very helpful, they do anything in their power to help and support kids. For example, they add more time after their working hours to help kids in tutoring and help kids stay on track. I love how most of the teachers take their job serious & actually love teaching. The district also takes school very serious, we have security always on duty. The Tolleson Union high school district, shows each and every high school to feel like and educational & fun home.
