Johnson Primary School at a Glance

Johnson Logo
As Tucson Unified's only primary school serving pre-K to 3rd grade, Johnson Primary has a focus on early language, early cognitive development and, as needed, early intervention. The school puts the children first under the motto: "Teach the child, not the program." Teachers work to build relationships and knowledge beyond textbooks and to connect students to their learning.
