Military Supports & Resources
Welcome to Luke!
On behalf of Luke Elementary, an A-rated school in the Dysart Unified School District, thank you for you and your families service to our country and welcome to Luke Air Force Base.
We are honored to serve the children of your family. This webpage provides links to resources that may prove useful in making the transition into our community easy. As one of the approximately two million military-connected children in America, your student will join the 15,000 school-age children of active-duty families here in Arizona. Whether this Permanent Change of Service makes Glendale or the surrounding areas your home post of if you're deployed and sending your children to our school, we are proud to help make your time with us as rewarding and enriching as possible.
Please don't hesitate to schedule your tour of Luke Elementary School. It would be our pleasure to show you and/or your child(ren) and family around, and help acclimate you to the school and familiarize you with the Jet family. Tours are offered on Mondays between 2:15pm - 4:30pm or Tuesdays-Fridays between 8:00am - 8:30am. Please contact our front office at 623-876-7300 or email [email protected] to set up a tour.

Luke Elementary is directly connected to Luke Air Force Base with a Base Gate that is opened for students during arrival and dismissal by Military Police. Our enrollment is based on residency and the home school for children who live on the main Luke Air Force Base.
Starting at Luke
We are proud to host a Student2Student Ambassador Program. Although in it's first official year, students in 5th-8th Grade can elect to take our Student2Student Elective Class in which students are trained to be leaders at Luke. Our Ambassadors are currently paired with classes to support new students transition to Luke, host a monthly Military Kid Connect Luncheon and volunteer throughout the year at a variety of school-sponsored events.
