Altar Valley School District lies just southwest of Tucson, Arizona approximately 10 miles west of Ryan Airfield and 25 miles from Kitt Peak National Observatory.  AVSD staff members have the good fortune to work in small, student-centered schools in a supportive, rural community where our positive efforts are making a difference in the lives of our students. We are part of a two school district.  Altar Valley Middle Schools and Robles Elementary. 

Both of the district’s schools effectively serve high percentages of at-risk students in a variety of ways beyond standardized test achievement success. We offer numerous extra-curricular programs aimed at serving our students, families, and the whole community. District and site-based decision-making is best on the best interest of students.  

Our staff is a mix of area residents and commuters from Tucson.  Our close proximity to the city enables employees to enjoy the many benefits of Tucson, including access to the University of Arizona.  If you are a team player, looking for a progressive district where your ideas are valued, we might be the place for you.
