168th Lighthouse School in the Nation, Building Leaders

Tuscany Heights Elementary

Tuscany Heights is the 168th Lighthouse School in the Nation as recognized by Stephen Covey. Through student leadership, we grow leaders that encompass a growth mindset and establish lifelong skills that will support our students as they grow into adults. Our mission is a living action statement that we use to guide Team Tuscany, as we do great things for all.

"We, THE Tigers, will be inspired to LEAD, HONOR, and EXCEL today!"

Bailey's Bulletin


It's the last week of school! We can't believe it is already time for another year to come to a close. It has been a great year, and we look forward to all of our students enjoying some family time, as well as the staff enjoying some time with their families. Sharpening your saw and synergizing with loved ones is very important. Before we do so, we have a packed week! Please see the Tuscany Heights Happenings below for details.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful children with us! They are the heartbeat of our school.

Proud Principal,

Tara Bailey
