Welcome to the Nogales Unified School District #1 website!

NUSD #1 is located about an hour south of Tucson in the beautiful mountains of Southern Arizona. The City of Nogales is a fantastic place to live and work. It is a progressive city that has successfully maintained its small town charm, rich traditions, and vibrant culture. The city is the county seat for Santa Cruz County and shares the international border with Nogales-Sonora, its sister city in Mexico.

Our school district serves approximately 6,200 students in 10 schools which include a preschool program, six elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools. Located in the southern part of Santa Cruz County, our students and families bring to our school community a rich cultural background that reflects life on both sides of the border.

Most importantly, Nogales is the type of city where “a kid can be a kid.” Far removed from the hustle and bustle of big city life, Nogales is a place where parents can feel safe with nurturing schools and caring neighbors. Come join us here at Nogales Unified School District #1. We can’t wait to meet you!


Important Message From the Superintendent


Dear Parents/Guardians of Wade Carpenter Middle School Students:

The Arizona Department of Education (ADE) has determined that a number of scores for Wade Carpenter Middle School students on the AIMS test administered in the 2014 school year will be invalidated due to a high number of wrong-to-right erasures on the answer sheets which exceeded the state's erasure average by a statistically significant number. Specifically, the 7th grade reading scores for 47 students and the 7th grade mathematics scores for 37 students have been invalidated.

We plan to hold a parent meeting with all the school's parents to explain the results of the investigation at the school on Thursday, March 26, 2015, at 6:00 p.m. at the cafeteria.

The ADE report is a great concern to the district, and we are taking measures to determine how these irregularities occurred.

Please take a moment to read the letter in its entirety.

Please take a moment to read the letter from the Arizona Department of Education.
