A Message from Our Principal

Greetings students and parents,

I want to assure you that the staff and teachers at Tulare Western will do their absolute best to give your child the most memorable high school experience possible as well as provide an academic program that teaches students to think critically, be civic minded, and contribute to an ever-changing society.

Tulare Western also prides itself on student and community connectedness. With this said, I challenge all students and parents to be as involved as possible at school and find at least one extra-curricular activity or parent organization to engage with this upcoming year. If this is something that peaks your interest and need help getting connected, please reach out to a counselor, teacher, or administrator.

Go, Mustangs!
