About Our District
Palominas Elementary School District No. 49 is comprised of two elementary school sites and an award-winning preschool serving 950 students with a K–8 organizational plan. Located in a rural area that encompasses 192 square miles, about 90 miles southeast of Tucson, Arizona, our schools serve a rapidly growing area of outside of Sierra Vista.
Parents choose Palominas ESD schools because they believe and want to be a part of our mission and vision. Our learning community is family, and we value the commitment and involvement of each and every one of our family members.
We encourage all parents to volunteer in classes and serve on our site councils and a Parent NCLB committee. Please contact your child’s school if you are interested.
Our district recognizes the value of a consistent, integrated effort from the home, the school, and the community. All are necessary to educate the whole child and best prepare him/her to share in a future of possibility and promise.
In a positive environment, high expectations correlate with abundant opportunities to ensure student success. We provide learning experiences to facilitate mastery of thinking and research skills and encourage development of student interests and appropriate social attitudes. We work together to realize our goals through the efforts of our instructionally diverse and creative staff. We also provide innovative resource materials to support and enrich basic strands of the curriculum.
