Welcome to the Tempe Union High School District, a collection of successful comprehensive high schools to serve you and your family.


Students, you are about to make some very big decisions that will have a lasting and positive impact on your future.  To help you and your families make the best choice about where to attend and what courses to take, we want to make you aware of two very important events that are coming up soon.

Middle School Vists:

High school guidance counselors and other representatives will meet with our incoming ninth grade students two times as part of the course selection process.  Students, as an incoming ninth grader, you will soon be asked to select the courses you will take your freshman year.  Since the courses you select will greatly influence your future educational endeavors, we urge you and your parents to give serious thought to the selection of appropriate courses.  The classes you finally choose should reflect your ability and interests.


  • Student Orientation – January 18 & 19, 2017

During Student Orientation, you will be given a course catalog describing all of the courses that are offered to students in Tempe Union.  Please take the time as a family to review this catalog and the accompanying course selection materials.  In addition to the information that these meetings will provide, the high school guidance counselors can discuss the complete curriculum and specific requirements regarding your high school program with you.


  • Pre-Registration –January 30 & February 1, 2017

High school counselors and the Assistant Principal for Academics will meet with each student at his/her middle school campus to collect and finalize the course selection process.


If you have questions, please contact the Assistant Principal for Academics at the high school you plan to attend.
