Parent: This school is fantastic! It's a TUSD neighborhood school, but it's also a "Parent's Choice" school so you can enter a lottery to have your out-of-district child placed here.
Teachers here are SO caring. There is a large group at this school with hearing impairments, so sign language is used throughout the school. This means everyone learns sign language! It also means they are trained to deal with "differences" in the students. They understand different behavior and don't make kids feel like they are doing something wrong when they need to do something else to be able to pay attention.
Parents are very involved at this school, in fact a large number work at the nearby University of Arizona, so there is an emphasis on the importance of education.
Classes are organized by 3-year cohorts: K,1,2 are together, 3,4,5 are together: nice for consistency and expectations. The middle schoolers 6-8 are organized into 4 groups like Hogwarts - there's even a sorting ceremony on the first day.

Senior: My experience with Tucson international academy was so great. I came to this school in junior high and now I’m a senior. The facility and staff treated me like family and always looked out for me. Because of them I have grew and became the best self I can be right now and I have bigger plans for my future than I ever thought I could’ve had. I maintained excellent grades and participated in school events. This school has prepared me for college and prepared me for life.
