Mesa Unified District


The Mesa Unified District in Arizona encompasses 77 schools, including 57 elementary schools, 10 middle schools, 7 high schools, and 3 alternative schools, serving students from diverse backgrounds. The district's schools demonstrate a wide range of academic performance, with several standout institutions leading the way in student achievement.

Among the top-performing schools in the district are Franklin at Brimhall Elementary, ranked 7th out of 1,245 Arizona elementary schools, and Las Sendas Elementary School, ranked 75th. These schools boast exceptional academic performance, with 77-92% of students proficient in English Language Arts and 73-88% proficient in Mathematics.

The alternative and distance learning schools, such as East Valley Academy and Mesa Distance Learning Program, face particular challenges, with lower graduation rates and higher dropout rates.
