For new and returning students, welcome to T.F. South.  You are entering a school with rich traditions, a dedicated and caring faculty and staff, supportive parents, high expectations, and a wealth of academic and extracurricular opportunities.  Our goal is not just to prepare students to succeed in the world, but to become active members of their communities, problem solvers, leaders, and role models.  We are appreciative of our supportive community.

Yours in Rebel Pride,

Jake Gourley
