DISCOVER AMPHI: Excellence Amphitheater Public Schools is celebrating 125 years of excellence, dating back to 1893 when the District was founded in a five-room adobe schoolhouse and named after the five mountain ranges that surround the city of Tucson like a “beautiful natural amphitheater.” Today we have grown to 21 schools, nearly 14,000 students, and more than 2,000 employees. We offer a comprehensive and demanding curriculum aligned with current state standards and teach the skills students need for the future, including creativity, innovation, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. We know that educating a child is not a one-size-fits-all undertaking. Our teachers and staff work with parents and students to ensure each child has opportunities to grow and excel in all subject areas, for example: • Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education at all grade levels, from K-12 • Fine arts courses in art and music offered at all levels • Advanced courses such as Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate Programme (IB), and Cambridge Academy

in Education

Career and work-based learning through Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses • Outstanding athletic programs and extracurricular activities • Preschool instruction to build a solid foundation for learning during ages 3-5 Our district is fortunate to enjoy wonderful support from the Tucson community. These connections are a critical role in supporting the work in the classroom and we have developed many partnerships and programs that enhance our academic offerings. We also offer a great working environment and have a legacy of strong Amphi traditions. We are proud of our dedicated support staff, teachers, and administrators that are committed to student learning and excellence in education. Most importantly, what sets our district apart is “The Amphi Family” – a climate and culture built, like any family, on collaboration, caring, and a child-centered environment.
