Message from Superintendent - Dr. Wilson

  • Dr. Doug Wilson On behalf of our staff and Governing Board, I welcome you and thank you for your interest in the Marana Unified School District. It is our honor to serve the children in our community. It is also a privilege to be a part of a school district consisting of remarkable staff, a dedicated Governing Board, invested parents, and caring community and business members all of whom are committed to the well-being of our students.    


    The Marana Unified School District is an integral part of the community and we take pride in knowing that the District is one of the reasons families choose to live in the Marana area. Our schools are dedicated to providing safe, secure and nurturing environments that facilitate and enhance student achievement and success. We are confident that we have a very special and educationally enriching experience to offer the children in our community.


    It is our belief that we must vigorously seek opportunities to engage students in the most relevant learning opportunities possible in order to prepare them for the demands of the future. Our children deserve no less than the best and our teachers, staff, and administrators are committed to providing the highest quality education so our students become lifelong learners and responsible citizens.


    I invite parents and community members to become actively involved in a student’s school experience. Home, community, and school partnerships, founded on mutual respect and regular communication, provide an unbeatable combination for quality education and student success.


    I invite you to learn more about our District by visiting any of our schools or contacting our District office.
