About Us

Opened in 1927, we are one of the oldest elementary schools in Tucson. Our school is named after a pioneering merchant who was instrumental in promoting public education in Tucson. Currently we have about 370 students enrolled in kindergarten through grade five.

We are a small neighborhood school that is nestled in the heart of the historic Sam Hughes Neighborhood. The University of Arizona is two blocks west of us and we enjoy our close proximity in a variety of ways. Both the opportunities we have to explore our past through our historic connections, and the ability to see into the future with our ties to the University of Arizona, help to make us a truly unique school.
