As the largest school in the Phoenix Union High School District with over 3000 students we are always faced with challenges regarding our youth. Our mission is to foster life-long learning through an equitable and rigorous curriculum in a positive school environment. We are plagued with many issues that affect our youth in negative ways. One of these is funding. As we are one, if not the most populated elective class at TGB we participate in as many activities as possible to keep the kids actively engaged and off the street. Our mission is "to motivate young people to become better citizens". We participate in numerous service learning projects, perform Color Guards and Drill demonstrations for just about any occasion, community service with Veterans orginizations and much more. TGB JROTC is a VERY successful program. We currently have a Nationally ranked rifle team, a Nationally ranked individual on the rifle team, Nationally ranked Color Guard and Drill team, State Champion Unarmed Drill team, and five consecutive State Champion Adventure teams.
