During our founding year, teachers and staff collaborated to develop our core values. Born from our legacy of academic excellence, these values shape students’ learning and hold our students and leadership accountable to high standards. Being one of the TUSKERS means actively participating in a vibrant learning community, enjoying endless opportunities to connect studies with the real world, discovering new talents and skills, and building lasting bonds of friendship and camaraderie.
