The mission of the district is to provide a safe environment that will foster learning, creativity, enthusiasm and excellence. The districts are paving the way for academic success for all students, and to meet the expectations of area families, through its focus on Common Core Standards in Math and Literacy and a rigorous approach to all other subject-area learning.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the San Luis District Curriculum
The schools have a goal to educate future leaders and to do that, the district has created a rigorous, broad-based and enriched curriculum at every grade level. The curriculum is aligned with the Common Core State Standards as required by the Department of Education of Arizona in all subjects areas: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Health & Physical Education, Computers & Technology, and Art. Electives offer students the chance to integrate their knowledge.
The standards that are a part of the curriculum represent the essential knowledge students need to acquire. These are skills in writing, mathematic problem-solving, scientific inquiry, historical research, and presentation of knowledge. The curriculum aims for depth of knowledge more so than breadth of knowledge, and adheres to major strands of learning – such as geometry or data analysis in Math, deepening and advancing students’ understanding of the subject each year.

Chalk Talk: The Impact of Reading to Your Children
We all know that it is important for our children to read books beginning at an early age. But studies have shown that is also important for children to be read to starting at an early age, and the earlier the better. In what is considered the “pre-school” years, from ages two to five, children’s brains are developing rapidly, they want to learn all about the world around them, and are thirsty and curious about new and different experiences. First and foremost, reading allows you the opportunity to make a connection with your child. Reading with your child will establish basic language skills, aid logical thinking and concentration, and promote the idea that reading is fun. The impact of reading to your young child is significant; it prepares your child for his or her own reading and comprehension, all of which helps build the foundation for academic success.
