Academic success is the primary purpose and focus of Dysart Unified School District. Each school signature program provides and extraordinary learning experience using high level curriculum. Many students will earn high school credit in advanced elementary courses. High school students are able to earn dual high school/college credits to competitively succeed in college or career pathways.
Arts is alive in Dysart. Where many schools in Arizona have cut arts instruction, Dysart prioritizes art as one of our top three areas of focus. Middle level and high school students choose arts electives that meet daily for the entire year to develop competitive, performance level skills. The annual Festival of the Arts showcases student and community artists. New equipment, supplies and facility upgrades are evidence of Dysart’s commitment to the Arts.
Athletics is on the rise in Dysart. Sports-based Physical Education classes provide on and off season sport-specific training for high school athletes. Competitive programs are offered at middle and high school where state level wins are expected of every sport. New equipment and facility upgrades to professional standards support top-ranked coaches  for an extraordinary athletic experience.
Dysart understands that our community has diverse needs and interests - particularly with the student learning experience during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Dysart is committed to a back-to-normal student experience.  Please visit for more information.
The list of great things happening across Dysart is a source of pride for our communities. Dysart is proud to be an important partner with our cities, Luke Air Force Base, the arts community, and other civic groups.  Together we work to build and support quality communities where children grow and thrive and community members from birth to retirement reap the rewards of student successes.
