About Us

The TPS Mission

Uncompromisingly Learner Centered

Our mission powerfully and concisely states the purpose of Tecumseh Public Schools. In broad terms, our mission inspirationally states the reason that our learning community exists. It is the starting point for all decisions regarding learner outcomes, learning opportunities, learner assessment, the system’s organizational structure, district policies and practices, and all matters of importance.

The TPS Vision

We are a dynamic learning community taking bold steps to ensure all learners are inspired and empowered for life.

The TPS Vision is what we will look like, feel like, and be like when we are operating at our ideal best. Our vision encompasses 8 key areas; learning, curriculum, instruction, assessment, technology, stakeholders, personnel, and leadership. This vision is the blueprint for all improvement projects and the job description of every individual in the district.

The TPS Strategic Design

The TPS Strategic Design is our guiding document, created in partnership with our community and staff.

150 years later, more than 270 followed in their footsteps on June 4, 2016. This series of articles will look back decade by decade at some of the most prominent graduates of Tecumseh High School over the last 15 decades.
