Tanque Verde Unified School District Open Enrollment

TVUSD Hosting Community Open Houses and Kindergarten Roundup in January

The Tanque Verde Unified School District is hosting Community Open Houses at its schools in January to allow interested members of the public to visit the school campuses, receive program information, and see the new building construction progress.

At the start of the 2022-2023 school year, our kindergarten students will be in brand new classrooms that are currently under construction! TVUSD offers free, full-day kindergarten. Emily Gray Junior High School will open the 2022-23 school year with a new Fine and Performing Arts Building. Tanque Verde High School will accelerate the growth of its Pathways at TVHS programs in SY 2022-23 with a new Science Lab/Classroom Building and a new Student Commons Building, housing 4 new classrooms, student collaboration and gathering spaces, and new Counseling & Guidance and Library & Information Technology Centers.

Our Elementary Schools’ Open Houses are for prospective families to get to know our campus by participating in fun, self-paced scavenger hunts! This will allow families to visit and see our school highlights, while minimizing time indoors or with large groups.
