Principal's Message

Dear Titan Community,


I have been in Hemet Unified School District for 15 years where I have been both a teacher and administrator. I was the Activities Director here for five years, and it is a privilege to now serve as the Principal of Tahquitz High School.   


I consider it an honor to lead a school with tradition and P.R.I.D.E. The privilege of working with such a talented and dedicated faculty and staff, a tremendous student body, and a supportive network of parents and community members will help move Tahquitz toward new heights.


The teachers, staff, and administration at Tahquitz are committed to providing high-quality instruction, along with extracurricular opportunities, that will meet the needs and interests of all students. I challenged all students to get involved and make your high school years meaningful. I truly believe that every student on this campus has the ability and the potential to accomplish great things!


I challenge each of you to set goals that cause you to dream big. Your time here at Tahquitz is foundational to your future success, so stay focused and intentional in order to achieve greatness. Together we will continue to move forward and find new ways to achieve academic success, further instill Titan P.R.I.D.E., and create lasting high school memories.


Thank you for this tremendous opportunity to serve as your principal. 


And remember to... Always show that Titan P.R.I.D.E.!


Dr. Kari McGowan, Principal
