Welcome to Nogales Unified School District!

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 5,400 students in 11 schools which include a preschool program, six elementary schools, two middle schools, an online school and two high schools, with one of the highest graduation rates in the State of Arizona. 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. Also NUSD #1 is one of the largest employers in the county with over 600 teachers and school staff-support staff serving our district.

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, being one of the safest places to live, with nurturing schools and caring neighbors. Come join us here at Nogales Unified School District #1. We can’t wait to meet you!
