About Maricopa Unified School District

Maricopa Unified School District operates six elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school serving the families of their community. The schools provide a focus on academics and extra-curricular organizations to provide students with a balanced education. Strong art, music and sports programs, for instance, add to the educational experience achieved in the classroom. Parents who move to one of the communities served by these schools can trust that their children will receive a solid educational experience.

To assist the district in meeting its goals, district leadership has created a strategic plan to focus on academic improvement to push the district into an "A" rated district. Parents and students benefit from the changes implemented in these plans as schools are renewing and updating their academic focus and the district is focusing on training its existing teachers while hiring dedicated, well-trained educators for openings. Several schools are seeing improved ranks as a result of this effort, including Pima Butte Elementary, which has received an "A" ranking for five years in a row.

The Maricopa school district fully embraces technology to support its learning efforts. Students are encouraged to bring connected devices into their school to support their education. It's not uncommon to see students with laptops and netbooks helping speed their educational efforts along. Upgraded technology through the classrooms also helps to support these learning goals.

Maricopa's elementary schools are unique in that they are divided based on specialty areas. For example, the Saddleback Elementary campus has a focus on 21st Century Learning, while the Butterfield campus has a strong STEAM focus. Leadership is the focus at Maricopa Elementary, with Santa Rosa Elementary focusing on critical thinking and technology. Finally Pima Butte provides a traditional learning experience, while Santa Cruz has been labeled as an Achievement Academy with a strong nutrition and health focus. Students continue to study the same core academic areas while enjoying extra training in these academic focus areas to support overall learning goals.

Leading Edge Academy Maricopa, Sequoia Pathway Academy and Legacy Traditional School are the three charter schools in the region. Each of these provides a unique focus to their education, and the Sequoia Pathway Academy has been named among the U.S. News Best High Schools list for both 2014 and 2015, pointing to the quality of its programs.
