School Notes

  • Core Values 
  • Children: We love our students and are committed to their growth and success. Developmentally appropriate, research-based teaching strategies and curricula are fundamentals. We educate the whole child at THA, balancing a rigorous academic program with Jewish values and experiences in the fine and performing arts, PE, technology, and more.
  • Commitment to Excellence High expectations of students, staff, and faculty are fundamental to our philosophy and approach. We strive to ensure our graduates are prepared to excel in Tucson`s most challenging high schools.
  • Community: We are a strong, warm and welcoming community. We ensure that all members of our school family are embraced and have a home at THA. Parent involvement is a hallmark of THA. Partnerships with local Jewish organizations and synagogues, and the greater community of Tucson, are critical components of our program.
  • Living Judaism: Through study, prayer, Hebrew and celebrations of our traditions and heritage, the joy and pride of living Judaism thrives here. Our students obtain a strong moral compass, deep understanding of their roots, and the knowledge and inspiration for living a Jewish life and contributing to Jewish civilization.Supporting Israel We support Israel and foster close relationships with Israeli students and educators.
  • Tikkun Olam: Healing the world is a central tenet of our belief system. Through a range of strategies including service learning opportunities at school and in the community, our students both understand and enact this essential value of making the world a better place.
