    Some of the benefits of becoming a part of the Florence Educational Community are:

    Growing District

    Our growing community means our schools enjoy new facilities and some of the latest technological resources for our students' educational growth. In July 2009, we opened a new high school that boasts a commercial quality television studio and a state-of-the-art telecommunications center. Cutting-edge science laboratories provide students with the opportunity to learn through simulation and experimentation.

    Small Town/Big City Atmosphere

    One of the advantages of living and working in the Florence Unified School District is the community support for its educational programs. In Florence and San Tan Valley, we share those advantages. Our parents, community members, and local businesses value the contribution our schools make to the future of its children. Whether you enjoy the small town atmosphere of Florence or the fast-growing - more metropolitan San Tan Valley, we offer the best of both worlds and are close enough to the Phoenix metropolitan amenities to have it all.

    Strong Educational Programs

    Our district is proud of its excellent regular education curriculum. The district also supports strong programs for special education, technology, music, art, substance abuse prevention, and interscholastic athletic programs. Our strong staff development programs help our teachers meet the ever-changing needs of our students and our curriculum reflects their educational needs for their future success. Our expectations are high, and our students and staff achieve and exceed those expectations!
