Welcome to the Baboquivari Unified School District #40 website. We are located approximately 60 miles southwest of Tucson, Arizona and are proud to be the kindergarten through 12th grade education center for the great Tohono O’odham Nation. Our district consists of all 3,400 square miles of the main Tohono O’odham Nation reservation within Pima County.
We are honored to live in a region of great beauty in the Sonoran Desert surrounded by the majestic mountain ranges of Santa Rosa, Sierrita, Combabi, Sand Tank, and Sauceds.
We are also proud of the dedication our student-focused staff members display each day as they educate our students. Our teachers encourage opportunities for growth and believe in teaching from a holistic approach to ensure that our students’ minds, bodies, and spirits are equally nurtured. While we embrace our rich culture and make certain the Himdag is preserved, we also prepare our students to be well-equipped to thrive in the 21st century.
We welcome you to come and explore our schools, our culture, and our people. In this website, you can read up on the latest district news, find administration information, read the Superintendent's message, and much more. And if you have any questions, we welcome you to stop by or give us a call.
We invite you to view the video posted below honoring the recipients of the 2013 Lou Ella Award of Excellence. Congratulations to all! We are very proud of you.
