Greetings, as Tohatchi High School's new Principal I have established short and long term goals for academic improvement. Students across the state of New Mexico are increasingly being asked to perform at higher levels to earn a graduation diploma. I am asking our teachers to be cognizant of this fact and work bell to bell to insure we give every student the opportunity to attain their life goals after high school.

Students at Tohatchi High School will be asked in turn to be focused on the value of having a high school diploma, and to have goals for their life after high school. The Class of 2015 will need to pass the New Mexico Standards Based Assessment in reading and math, and have 24 credits. The class of 2016, 2017, and 2018, will need to pass a more rigorous computer based exam called the PARCC. The New Mexico Public Education Department is becoming more and more demanding on the requirements for graduation, and is limiting opportunities (as of this writing) for demonstrating the equivalent competency for graduation as they were able to do last school year. Students will need to pass the tests, and teachers and students together will need to be preparing from the student’s freshman year to pass these exams. The stakes are high, and I intend on bringing a renewed seriousness about the consequences of not being able to pass these tests to our teachers, students, and community.

To this end I have established new vision and mission statements for the school.


Vision Statement

Tohatchi High School provides a safe and effective learning environment, capable of enabling its graduates to attend the best post-secondary learning institutions.

Mission Statement

All THS students will be able to demonstrate proficiency or better on standardized tests in: math, reading, writing, science, and social studies. THS will provide learning that meets the needs of each student to attain their post-secondary life goals.
