Educational Services Vision

The Educational Services Department, in partnership with staff, families, and the community, provides a rigorous, innovative, and supportive learning environment where each student thrives academically, develops a deep love of learning, and is uniquely prepared for the future.

Educational Services Mission

Empowering students and staff to achieve success through learning, leadership, and collaboration.

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.
