Dear Community Members, Parents and Students:
Tse Yi Gai High School enjoys a rich history of cultural excellence that is the result of a collegial partnership between the school staff, parents, and community members who provide a diversity of experiences for our students. Our goal is to work with TYGHS staff, students, parents, and community members to provide the best possible educational program for our students.
TYG is an Apple ConnectEd school – 1 of 114 in nation, 1 of 6 in New Mexico (only a high school in NM) – students will receive iPads and approximately 1 Million in technology and services over the three years of the program. New wireless equipment has been installed and iPads will be deployed in the next few weeks.
TYG has a Filmmakers Without Borders program – digital film making program staffed by fellow from New York City-based nonprofit – first program in a US school.
Based on a review of our 2015 School Report Card, our staff will focus on assisting all students in reaching their growth potential in Reading and Math and continue to assist students in developing their Navajo language skills.
TYG hosts a series of Navajo cultural events (powwows, shoe games, gourd dances) - please see the school calendar for dates and times.
I welcome the opportunity to visit with you regarding concerns or suggestions you may have on how we can better serve our students. You may reach me at 505.721.5520 or 505.655.3312. My home address is 5A Warrior Drive at Ts4 Yi’ Gai High School.
Please stop by and visit or give us a call. We welcome your input and ideas for improving our school.
Dr. Brian Staples
Principal, Tsé Yí Gai High School
