Photo of Superintendent Dr. Quinn KellisDysart Unified School District proudly serves approximately 25,000 Pre-K through grade 12 students and their families.  Working with a dedicated team of close to 2,800 staff members plus a multitude of devoted volunteers and active community members, Dysart provides a wide variety of options and opportunities to support the success of each student.  The focus of our Dysart community is to prepare students for the challenges and opportunities they will face after graduation.  

We take this responsibility very seriously and we know the district must have quality educational programs that tap individual student interests while providing a learning environment that supports the knowledge and skills students need to be future ready.
We allow student interests to meet opportunity by providing multiple learning pathways for students through our high school signature programs, such as advanced coding, culinary arts, engineering, ROTC, International Baccalaureate, plus Advanced Placement and dual credit courses.  In our K-8 schools, we have choices that include: coding immersion, the Innovation Academy, Cambridge Advanced Academics, International Studies, an Arts Academy, STEM programs and many other excellent relevant learning opportunities.  We are a comprehensive system that not only provides great choices in academic areas and career preparation offerings, but also, outstanding art, band, physical education, leadership and athletic programs that enhance the learning environment.
Dysart is also known as a caring community.  Rachel’s Challenge was implemented district wide and all 23 school sites use this program to build a culture of respect and compassion. Safe and secure schools where respect and good citizenship are fostered help create safe communities.  
The list of great things happening across our district is a source of pride for our communities. We are proud to be an important partner with our cities, Luke Air Force Base, and 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 these successes.
