At Florence Unified School District #1 we put ‘Kid’s First’. These two little words make a big difference when the District Vision Statement becomes a way of life, and the last six years have shown what a difference a caring, dedicated and focused staff can make. Under the leadership of Dr. Gary Nine, and with the warm support of our parents and community, Florence Unified School District has become a leader in educational technology in Arizona, and every school has turned around previously lackluster performances to achieve ratings of performing, performing plus or highly performing - and we just keep getting better. Florence Unified School District consists of seven K-8 schools, two high schools, an online school, an alternative school and a school for students with severe emotional disabilities. All schools are located in Florence and San Tan Valley.
In addition to three public school districts to choose from, San Tan Valley also has a variety of charter schools, online schools and private schools to choose from. See a list of schools here.
