A SAFE PLACE TO EXPLORE AND LEARN
In Spanish, presidio means fort, a place of safety. Presidio School is just that, a safe place to explore and learn. Presidio School offers an exciting and positive education atmosphere in which students are taught the value of respect, responsibility, and diversity. Our learning community encourages independence of thought and deed, while teaching the need for self-imposed limits so as not to infringe upon the rights and freedoms of other community members.
In 2001, Presidio School moved to a beautiful new campus designed to provide students with a safe place to learn, as well as access to the newest in science and computer technology. The campus has 25,000 square feet of classrooms, labs, and auditoriums set on three acres in central Tucson. The courtyard is equipped with a basketball court,
a volleyball court and two ramadas with picnic tables for student use.
In the spring of 2002, Presidio also added two new fully equipped science labs.
In July of 2007 Presidio was awarded the Improving Literacy Through School Libraries federal grant. This grant allowed Presidio School to open the Dreamcatcher Library. The Dreamcatcher Library is open to students, faculty, and family members of those who attend the school. Beginning in January the library will be open 7:30am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday and 8:00am to 3:00pm on Saturday.
