VISION AND MISSION
The mission of Timpview High School is to prepare students to be COLLEGE, CAREER, and LIFE
ready. We believe that we will accomplish that mission by embracing a vision of GROWTH,
INCLUSSION, and EXCELLENCE.
TIMPVIEW HIGH SCHOOL
Timpview High School was opened in 1978 as the second comprehensive high school in the
Provo City School District. Today, it is the home to approximately 2000 students and 150 staff
members, including administrators, teachers, para-educators, secretaries, custodians, and
cafeteria workers. Due to our relative size we are classified as a 4A high school, the second
largest classification in the state of Utah.
Since opening in 1978, Timpview has had a strong tradition of excellence in academics,
athletics, and the arts. Our academic excellence was recognized in 2009 when U.S. News and
World Report award Timpview a Silver Medal for America’s Best High Schools. In athletics, our
teams have won the third most state championships in the state. Finally, our groups in the
performing arts are recognized year in and year out for their superior quality.
As a comprehensive high school, we offer a wide range of courses and programs to meet the
interests and needs of our students. We offer over 20 Advanced Placement (AP) courses, as well
as Concurrent Enrollment and Distance Learning courses through Utah Valley University. In
addition, our 18 different Career Pathway programs prepare students for post-high school
education and professions.

TIMPVIEW SPIRIT
THS Colors
Orange & White
School Spirit Song
Fight on, you Thunderbirds
Fight on, you Thunderbirds, wherever you may be.
Fight on, you Thunderbirds, fight on to victory.
Battle to win the glory, honor your name.
Courage will tell the story, bringing you fame.
Fight on, you Thunderbirds, who wear the orange and white.
Higher and higher we’ll fly!
Now and forever, let us fight with all our might.
Fight on, Timpview High!
School Mascot
The Thunderbird
The Thunderbird is a legendary creature in the history and culture of the North American
indigenous people. It’s considered a supernatural bird of power and strength. It is described as a
large bird, capable of creating storms and thundering while it flies. Clouds are pulled together
by its wing beats, the sound of thunder is made by its wings clapping (thus its name), and
lightning flashes from its eyes when it blinks. It is considered to be intelligent, powerful, and
wrathful.

CAMPUS LIFE
ASSEMBLIES
Assemblies are an integral part of the curriculum at THS. Since most assemblies are scheduled
during class time, attendance is mandatory. THS student leadership groups and administration
makes every effort to provide a variety of informative and entertaining assemblies. Students are
encouraged to show proper respect and enthusiasm at assemblies. Disruptive behavior will
result in removal from the program. As per school regulations, food and drink are not allowed in
the assembly area (e.g. Thunderdome and Auditorium). An assembly performer should have
passing grades, regular attendance, and model citizenship.
CLUBS
Clubs will be organized according to the District Club policy for secondary schools (No. 3540).
Clubs arechartered during the month of September with applications due in October. Check
with the Main Office about club applications. Prospective clubs require:
A faculty advisor to approve and supervise all club meetings and activities
A service project to be completed within the school year
A club constitution.
DANCES
Generally, school dances will begin at 8:00pm and conclude at 11:00pm. All students are
expected to adhere to the district’s dress and grooming policy (No. 3324) and the safe schools
policy (No. 3310). Students are not allowed to wear masks or paint their faces when attending
“theme” or “costume” dances. Dancing that may endanger others is not allowed. Disc jockies
will be asked to stop the music if students’ actions could cause injuries.
