Describe: We are a great comprehensive high school with an outstanding academic record. We are welcoming and inviting and offer a full spectrum of curriculum with a strong Advanced Placement program, arts, theater, music, extracurricular activities, and clubs. We are a community of learners – staff, students, and parents.
Stellar Points: Twenty-four Advanced Placement courses; in top 1,200 schools in nation offering AP (U.S. News & World Report); highly educated/qualified staff; always something going on! We are the community school with a community pool, theater and Ray Patterson Field; annually win state art contests; have three different partnerships with CSU and a strong partnership with UNC for research projects
Special Offerings: We offer as much as we can for every student; only school with AP Spanish; the professional development school – CSU offers a 300 level class to college students at TVHS, who then work in classrooms prior to student teaching, and many return as student teachers, then as teachers; have retired H-P engineers for tutoring our students.
Extracurricular: We offer what kids and parents say they want; nearly 30 state-sponsored sports and more than 20 clubs (CHSSA) – the most sports programs north of 120th Avenue in Denver – lacrosse draws from several districts and schools as does gymnastics, dance team and swimming; clubs include National Honor Society, anime Japanese graphic novels, Harry Potter Club, salsa, games, long boarding, etc.; lots of community service
Climate: We have an inclusive, friendly, welcoming environment with strong academics and something for everyone. Those engaged in CHSSA activities and athletics are held to high eligibility standards. Students/staff/community are service oriented: canned food drive, adopt a family, Thanksgiving dinners, two blood drives. Classified staff is involved at schools and in district committees.
Parent/Volunteer: Building accountability committee; parent volunteer programs; school-to-career programs with parental involvement; scholarship search. Very willing – all we do is ask. There are three booster groups and they help with other things as well. SAAC is fairly active.
