What is PTSA? Why join PTSA?

The Coral Gables High School PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) is a not-for-profit parent association that  is part of the County, State and National PTA. We are an organization of more than 5 million other people who share your interest in issues affecting children.  

The number one reason to join the PTSA is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more PTA advantages:  

Get Connected There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.

Discover Great Resources
The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.

Tap into a Network
PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.

Watch Yourself Grow
By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause—your child and all children in the community.

Speak Up
PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.

Witness Improvement
By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive   changes. Local PTAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events.

Be a Role Model
By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.

Enjoy Substantial Benefits
Individuals and local units can take advantage of a host of benefits from PTA membership, including discounts and offers from member benefits providers and sponsors, magazine subscriptions, leadership training, e-newsletters and much more.

Everyone—parents, educators, students and other citizens active in their schools and communities—is invited to join our PTSA!
