From our Principal
Welcome to Tuscarora High School, Home of the Huskies! We are committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment in which students may focus on their academic and personal growth. We are looking forward to another outstanding school year as we continue to provide programs and opportunities which focus on the whole child. We are excited about the opportunities to meet the needs of all of our students and look forward to working with them as they strive to achieve high academic standards.
Tuscarora High School serves the student population of the Tuscarora Cluster. Our direct feeder school is Smart’s Mill Middle School. Feeding into Smart’s Mill Middle are students from the following elementary schools: Lucketts Elementary, Ball’s Bluff Elementary, and Leesburg Elementary.
“RISE” is our school motto-Respect, Integrity, Service, Excellence. Everything we do here is centered around those tenets. The Tuscarora faculty is dedicated to providing students with the resources and support needed to be successful. Our teachers focus on building positive relationships with their students while working with each other to connect concepts and skills across the high school curricula. In addition, we establish common expectations and establish strong communication lines with parents and guardians. We continue to implement the block schedule which increases the time students spend in quality learning situations and which allows more in-depth and hands on exploration of content. High expectations and excellence are priorities at Tuscarora, and we set the stage on which students may excel in academics, athletics, activities, and the visual and performing arts.
Education is a lifelong process and the administration and staff are committed to creating a climate conducive to “RISE”. Teachers, parents and other members of our school and community are dedicated to the mission of our students making an impact in our world to RISE above the rest.
Best wishes to everyone for an exceptional school year!
