    Dear Students, Parents, Guardians and Community,

    Welcome to Tohopekaliga High School, Home of the Tigers.

    We are excited to share with you our new high school that has been established to serve the students and families of Osceola County and the great state of Florida.

    Tohopekaliga High is a Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts, and Math (STEAM) high school. Our school offers Advanced Placement classes, which will include a broad and challenging educational program for students from diverse cultural backgrounds. Tohopekaliga High School is committed to inspiring students to achieve at the highest standards of intellectual and personal development. Our programs are comprehensive and contain multiple Career, Technical and Education pathways.

    Our school has established a caring, respectful, multicultural environment that is committed to instilling in each student a desire to learn, to take appropriate risks, and to accept challenges. Our school community is committed to developing students who are resilient and adaptable, equipped with the knowledge, skills, and disposition to continue their education and become personally fulfilled, interdependent, socially responsible adults.

    As your principal, I am excited to serve the students, families, staff and community of Osceola County. I bring a dedicated, passionate heart that believes that every student needs and deserves a quality education. I encourage all of us to join together and create new bonds of friendship, collaboration and commitment to ensure that all students learn and grow.

    Our Motto is,“ Sapere aude, which in Latin means, “Dare to Know or Dare to be Wise”. A strong foundation of knowledge will guide our efforts as we seek to become wise.

    I look forward to serving you.
