Mission Statement
TUSD Community Education School's views children as feeling, thinking, creative, and growing individuals. We provide a supportive community within which children expand their learning and development. We believe that for learning to be effective and retained, it must be fun. At school, children move in a miniature version of the larger society in which we live. Our goal is to provide them with an opportunity to test themselves, and develop in a safe, non-threatening environment full of choices and challenges. We support and encourage them to become problem-solving, sensitive, contribution, and responsible members of the "school community" as initial preparation for adulthood in a more complex society. As part of Tucson Unified School District, we adhere to the district Mission, Vision, Strategic Priorities, and Values Policy.
