About the Alamo Heights High School PTSO

Our Mission

The AHHS PTSO is formed for the purpose of bringing the home and school into close relationship in order that the parents, teachers and students may cooperate intelligently in the education and welfare of the students. The AHHS PTSO raises money through dues and activities for expenditures to benefit Alamo Heights High School, its students and faculty through both curriculum enrichment and gifts to the school.  All Executive Board and Committee Chairs are volunteers for the organization.
