To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.
As we work to keep families informed at The Higley Traditional Academy, we are asking parents to provide us with an e-mail address in order to keep you informed about the process and any additional information that may arise. Please take a few minutes to sign up for the school’s E-Alert system. You can click here and select what information you want sent automatically to your e-mail address, including communication from the principal and district.
If you would like to modify your selected list, or unsubscribe from the HUSD E-Alerts system, please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Throughout the remainder of the school year, we are a closed campus and we require all visitors to sign in at the office and acquire a visitor badge between the hours of 7:45 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. It is a requirement that all visitors sign in at any school office prior to entering campus while school is in session. This procedure helps us to ensure all kids safety.
Higley Traditional Academy is a community school in Higley Unified School District has served neighborhood students for over 100 years.
We provide a safe and enriching learning environment built on history and tradition and driven by innovation. We strive to develop self-motivated life-long learners through quality core educational programs, as well as a well-rounded curriculum of physical education, arts and music. Our state of the art classrooms provide our students with technology experiences necessary in the 21st century.
The back-to-basics curriculum, pace of studies and specific expectations for academic achievement, behavior, and dress require a firm commitment from every parent, student, and teacher. Higley Traditional Academy develops a solid foundation of fundamental and higher level thinking skills through a structured curriculum that is consistent within each grade level and sequential throughout the grades. Our curriculum is taught using direct instruction techniques, whole class instruction and approved teaching methods.
Our students, staff and parents work cooperatively to focus on student achievement for each and every student we serve. We invite you and your children to join us in our learning environment at Higley Traditional Academy.
