As a community K-12 school district, the District serves approximately 13,000 students across 18 schools.

    Where students are inspired:

    In Marana schools, the core focus is not simply to ensure that students are taught, but to ensure that they learn. Students are challenged, relationships are built, and teaching is focused on individual student achievement. An integral part of our community, Marana Schools partners with parents, local businesses, non-profits, and community members to provide well-rounded educational experiences that educate the entire student. Comprehensive K-12 curriculum is based on standards that provide a consistent framework to give students the tools they need to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens. When each student graduates, they will be prepared with the skills, knowledge, and values necessary for success in an ever-changing world.
