If you are a teacher or an individual who would like to work with a school district dedicated to helping students achieve their highest potential, you'll want to check out what Florence Unified School District #1 has to offer. If you'd like to be surrounded by dedicated professionals, supportive parents, and a community who believes in helping our educational system succeed, you'll like what you find in Florence, Arizona.
Some of the benefits of becoming a part of the Florence educational community are:
Our growing community means our schools enjoy new facilities and some of the latest technology resources for our students' educational growth. In July 2009 we opened a new High School that boasts a commercial quality television studio and a state-of-the-art telecommunications center. Cutting edge science laboratories provide students the opportunity to learn through simulation and experimentation.
Small Town Atmosphere
One of the advantages of living and working in a small town is the community support for its educational programs. In Florence, we share those advantages. Our parents, community members, and local businesses value the contribution our schools make to the future of its children. While our community enjoys the small town atmosphere that is so appealing to families, we are also close enough to the Phoenix metropolitan amenities to allow for the best of both environments.
Strong Educational Programs
Our district is proud of its excellent regular education curriculum. The district also supports strong programs for special education, technology, music, art, substance abuse prevention, and interscholastic athletic programs. Our strong staff development programs help our teachers meet the ever changing needs of our students and our curriculum reflects their educational needs for their future success. Our expectations are high, and our students and staff achieve and exceed those expectations!
