Nogales Unified Community

Located about an hour south of Tucson in the beautiful mountains of Southern AZ, Nogales is a wonderful place to live. Nogales is a progressive city that has been able to maintain 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.

Due to the International Border, Nogales is the economic capital of the region and serves as one of the major gateways into the United States. Tourism is an important industry in the area, as visitors cross the border between both cities for site-seeing and shopping on a daily basis.

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 in Nogales!
