Learning is Our #1 Priority

Educational Services

The Queen Creek Unified School District’s Educational Services Department is committed to providing a quality educational experience. Through rigorous curriculum, continuing assessment practices, and diverse student services, the department promotes a comprehensive approach to meeting the demands of learners. 

The Educational Services Department provides ongoing professional development to promote best practices for teaching and learning, coordinates the use of District adopted instructional materials, and supports assessment initiatives for improving student academic achievement across QCUSD.

Academic Standards

Queen Creek Unified School District’s curriculum is directly aligned with the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards. Curriculum maps provide clear guidance to teachers that delineate specific skills and knowledge that students should master throughout their K-12 experience. These high-quality standards are part of a state initiative to improve academic rigor and ensure that all students are college and career ready upon high school graduation.

Top District

All of our schools are designated as “A” or “B” by the state, and we are rated as one of the top districts in Arizona. Our educators focus on each student’s learning requirements; we utilize a solid assessment system that helps our teachers monitor student learning toward essential reading and math standards.
