The Dysart Unified School District will be celebrating its 100th year of educating the community in the 2020-2021 school year. The district was established as a one-room schoolhouse in 1920 by Nathanial Martin Dysart. Today, Dysart employs over 2,700 staff members, and has over 24,000 students at 26 schools. The district encompasses 140 square miles, serving parts of El Mirage, Glendale, Surprise, Youngtown, and Maricopa County. 

Dysart Unified School District is looking for memories and stories that can be shared as part of the Centennial celebration. District alumni, staff, students and the community are also invited to help plan the Centennial celebrations for the 2020-2021 school year. Help is needed to plan events, track down history, collect memorabilia, fundraise and volunteer at events. Anyone that would like to share a story, memorabilia, or sign up to participate may do so below.  Dysart looks forward to many more years of providing extraordinary experiences to our community.​
