About Tuscola High School

 Tuscola High School was established in 1966 as a result of the consolidation of the Haywood County School System.  Formerly a high school of sophomores, juniors, and seniors, freshmen became a part of the student body in 1993.  The school is located off highway 19-23 just twenty miles southwest of Asheville, North Carolina, where it sits amid the beautiful Smoky Mountains.  Appropriately, the school mascot is the Mountaineers, frequently abbreviated as the Mounties.  Students at Tuscola have numerous opportunities for extracurricular activities.  Sports offered are football, basketball, volleyball, baseball, tennis. swimming, softball, track, golf, soccer, cross-country, and cheerleading.   The school’s award winning art classes, band program, and choral department provide elective choices for students as well.  Tuscola High School’s student population consists of approximately 950 students. There are approximately 90 teachers who are under the leadership of one principal and three assistant principals.

Our mission is to achieve student success through focusing on the whole child as a lifelong learner.
