Superintendent's Welcome

Welcome to the Catalina Foothills School District #16 in Tucson, Arizona, a system of schools recognized as an exceptional learning place for our community's school-age children. We are Tucson's leading educational choice for PreK-12. We educate many students living throughout the greater metro Tucson area.

Our district strategic plan, Envision21: Deep Learning, outlines our commitment to prepare our students well for a 21st century life that is increasingly complex and global. We are determined to create a learning environment in which each student achieves academic and personal excellence.

Teaching and learning are at the heart of our enterprise. We know that a dynamic curriculum that engages students in deep learning taught by highly competent professionals who are held accountable for learning results is key to our students' success here.

Please take the time to get to know us better through this website. There are links throughout the site that take you to video clips of our students, staff, and parents whose images and voices tell our educational story. Enjoy.



Mary Kamerzell, Ph.D., Superintendent
