Bridging the Gap to Greatness
Supporting All TPHS Students!
DONATE NOW

CLASSROOM AND STUDENT ENRICHMENT DOES ALL THIS AND SO MUCH MORE . . . .

WHY WE EXIST

The Torrey Pines High School Foundation (TPHSF) is the central facilitator for fundraising and distribution of grants that provide support for the programs that create an exceptional high school experience for students.

The sterling reputation of Torrey Pines High School is attributed, in part, to the success of academic, athletic, visual/performing arts, and other special programs supported by TPHSF. This is accomplished through Classroom & Student Enrichment and Extracurricular Programs.

The nonprofit Torrey Pines High School Foundation was established in 1993 to bridge the large gap between students’ needs and state/district funding by raising money through donations and special events. Thanks to the support of generous donors, we achieve our mission of enhancing the educational and developmental experience for ALL Torrey Pines High School students.

We bridge the gap to greatness that government funding does not provide.

Classroom & Student Enrichment

Donations to the Classroom & Student Enrichment Program go directly to enhancing the student experience through education and student connectedness programs  (not to extracurricular clubs and sports). From campus beautification, to wireless spectrometers for the science department, to a baby grand piano, and to diploma covers on graduation day, Classroom & Student Enrichment exists to benefit all students and plays a key role in bridging the gap to greatness.

Extracurricular Programs

Support for Extracurricular Programs is separate from Classroom & Student Enrichment, and is facilitated by TPHSF to cover activities that provide students the opportunity for enrichment, leadership, skill enhancement, team building, and achievement beyond traditional in-school curriculum.  Support allows for an exceptional experience as the Foundation helps these programs beyond what the government budget supplies.

VOLUNTEER

The responsibility of the Foundation is to be the central facilitator for funding programs to enhance the student experience. We do not have a colossal staff to carry out and implement programs and events. Whether your time is limited or boundless, your skills specialized or general, we, but more importantly the students, need your help.

"There are no more formative years than those in high school. Let's provide them the resources to not only be great students but great adults."

– Zephyr Fletcher, Executive Director

SPOTLIGHT ON EZRA 😃
A little about Ezra -
I am the second of 4 boys in my family. I was born in Idaho, but lived in Texas for most of my life, before moving to San Diego 5 years ago.

At first it was hard with distance learning when I started at TPHS, but as soon as we were able to return to the classroom I have loved being a part of the Torrey Pines community. I have made a lot of really great friends. Torrey Pines has the best teachers and coaches. Mr. Neubauer, my auto shop teacher, makes class interesting and fun. I have learned everything from how to fix my car to being safe on the road. My club swim coach, Coach Richard, is also my high school swim coach. He has been a huge part of my life since I've been here. He is always full of encouragement and will have a funny comment to make me laugh. My dive coach, Coach KC, has coached me for the past 2 years. I am very lucky to have such a talented coach to hep me become a better diver. I can tell he genuinely cares about me and how I am doing, and wants the best for me.

I love to dive. I have been diving for the past 5 years. I love the challenge of learning new dives. It is a sport that never gets boring, because there is always something new to learn. It takes a lot of mental focus, when I'm on the board I have to leave everything behind, concentrate on the dive ahead of me, and just go for it.

Additional info -
The TPHS Swim & Dive Team has had an incredible year and Ezra qualified for the State Championship Freestyle Relay. TPHS Boys Swim won their 7th straight Division 1 Championship - Congratulations!
