Ajo Unified School District


A Title I school, AUSD serves about 450 students from Ajo, Lukeville, Why, and the western edge of the Tohono O’Odham Reservation. Our student population is roughly one-half Latino, one-quarter Anglo, and one-fourth Native American. AZELLA classifies 20% of our students as English language learners. Professional learning communities allow AUSD teachers to collaborate across grade levels and content areas, using data to assess and address student needs. The administration and academic coaches provide extensive instructional support. Ajo is a small town with a robust arts community, affordable housing and a low cost of living. Available services include an excellent supermarket, cafés and restaurants, a medical clinic, a public golf course and swimming pool, a bowling alley, community sports leagues, a bookstore, auto shops, and more. Nearby attractions include the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge. It takes about 90 minutes to drive from Ajo to the West Valley, and roughly 2 hours to drive from Ajo to Tucson or to Rocky Point.
