About FUSD

Parents and teacher working together in classroom.
  • Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) has a long history of offering a well-rounded and rigorous educational experience for all students. FUSD is home to nearly 9,100 students and 15 comprehensive school sites, in addition to Northern Arizona Distance Learning. FUSD works to implement best practices and innovative education techniques to meet the needs of students in northern Arizona.  

    Students discover their path at our 15 school sites, which includes three elementary magnet schools, four middle school academies and four high school academies.  Students can also take advantage of Advanced Placement, Technology and Engineering, Expeditionary/Place Based Education, and Modern Language while high school students have opportunities to take high school dual-enrollment classes for college credit, career and technical education, music, fine art, drama, foreign language and online courses. Middle school students enjoy a variety of elective classes, clubs, sports and tutoring support.  For elementary students, FUSD offers before and after-school programs, multi-age classroom opportunities, artists in residence, as well as intervention and enrichment opportunities for every student. 

    With high expectations, FUSD employs teachers, counselors, librarians, bus drivers, administrators, and support staff to ensure students can focus on their education.  Working together, FUSD is proud that students consistently score above state and national averages on standardized achievement tests and the dropout rates are lower than the state average.

    Community support is vital that takes place across the district every day.  FUSD is grateful for the continuing support of Team FUSD, our community partners, families, and students.  Flagstaff is a special place because of the ongoing community support.
