Tomball Memorial High School Tenet of the week: Strive for Excellence.
At TMHS WE BELIEVE in challenging the status quo. We believe and expect that all TMHS stakeholders push the bar higher and strive for better. Teachers and staff members expect students to rise to the occasion and be successful beyond the "normal." Students and parents should expect teachers and staff to model excellence for each of their students.
All students utilizing campus parking must have their parking permit tag visible in their vehicle while parked on school grounds. Any student without a visible parking permit is not allowed to park on school grounds. Parking permits may be purchased through the front office.
All HOME TMHS athletic contest tickets are being sold online. Please visit THIS LINK to purchase your tickets to support the Wildcats!
Morning Student Drop-off
Please take a look at the graphic above regarding student and staff parking as well as procedures for car rider drop off. As always, exercise extra caution when dropping and picking up students.
Students: It is imperative that you are on time for school and each class so you can set yourself up for success, earn credits, and not lose any possible exemptions!

Student Cell Phone Reminders
- Cell phones may be used during class for instructional purposes and in accordance with each teacher’s guidelines. Please note that teachers may choose to prohibit cell phone use in their classrooms.
- Cell phones may be used before and after school, between class periods, and during lunch as long as students follow TISD acceptable use guidelines.
Student Dress Code
We will continue to enforce our dress code policies per the TISD Student handbook with an emphasis continuing on the following items:
- All students must wear clothing that adequately covers the body. Shorts and/or skirts must reach the mid-thigh. Spaghetti straps, strapless, backless, see-through and low-cut tops are not allowed. Tops must cover the midriff.
- All male students must be clean-shaven and may not display any piercings including the ear.
- Students are not allowed to wear hats, bandanas, or other head coverings.
- Student hair must be that of natural color. Students that need to address this particular portion can meet with their Assistant Principal to discuss a solution and timeline.
All dress code policies can be found in the TISD Student Handbook linked HERE.
