Social & Emotional Wellness
Today, young adults face a multitude of challenges not experienced by many previous generations. In addition to academic success, high school students are faced with issues that can affect their social and emotional wellness.
At the Tempe Union High School District, we believe our students are not only capable of facing these challenges but that working together with peers, educators, families and others, they can use these challenges to make them stronger, kinder and more prepared for success in life.
