Apache Junction Unified School District
Dr. Krista Anderson, Superintendent ,
Greetings from the Apache Junction Unified School District (AJUSD) at the gateway to the Superstition Mountains! The City of Apache Junction and the surrounding communities are known for their small town warmth with easy access to all the amenities of the larger valley. Likewise, AJUSD, with just over 3,600 students in five schools, is small enough that students are known as individuals – but large enough that we can offer many diverse and award-winning opportunities in academics, trade and professional training, fine arts, athletics, and extracurricular activities. Additionally, our ROTC program is among the best in the nation, earning top honors as “Unit of Distinction with Academic Honors” for more than a decade.

At AJUSD, our “College and Career Readiness For All” expectation means that whether a child is a senior in high school or just entering kindergarten, our programs will prepare that student for post-secondary education and today’s real-world careers. Through Individualized Instruction, Project-Based Learning, ready access to technology, and partnerships with Central Arizona College and East Valley Institute of Technology, three generations of alumni prove that our curriculum consistently places our students in the best possible position to succeed.

Please feel free to visit our schools, or visit our website at for more information – or call for a tour: 480-982-1110. We’ll be happy to show you around!
