The Tanque Verde Unified School District was established in 1885 as a Pre K-12 District which served the Tanque Verde Valley community, 14 miles northeast of central Tucson. Once primarily a rural ranching community, the Tanque Verde Unified School District retains its unique history and identity, but now serves a primarily residential suburban community.
Tanque Verde has long been recognized as an exemplary school district, with excelling, highly rated schools and an overall district grade of “A” as determined by the Arizona Department of Education (2014). With the addition of a comprehensive 9-12 high school in 2005, the District now serves approximately 2,100 students at four school sites, comprised of two K-6 elementary schools, one 7-8 junior high school, and one 9-12 high school.
The success of the District is attributed to a highly supportive community, and an accomplished, dedicated and caring staff of over 280 employees who work to provide the highest quality education and support services to all District students. The District endeavors to create pathways to success for all students and to ensure effective communication, collaboration, school partnerships and facilities that provide a safe and supportive environment for students and staff members.
