Union at a Glance

Welcome to the Union Elementary School District No. 62! UESD is a dynamic school district where your child’s education is our first priority. We are delighted that you are considering moving into our community, and want to welcome you and your children to our neighborhood.

 

Who We Are

UESD No. 62 is a growing school district nestled Southwest of Phoenix. We are uniquely positioned as a district to offer a taste of both the past and present in the Valley of the Sun with pockets of agricultural land that spreads out toward the Sierra Estrella mountains, as well as new home developments dotting the landscape. Our quiet, bedroom community is reflective of the demographics of Arizona and our nation. We are a medium-sized school district that offers a hometown feel with all the advantages you would find in a large school district.

 

Employing more than 200 employees, UESD No. 62 is a rapidly growing district. Currently serving  approximately 1,900 students, the district has three schools to serve your children:

•   Dos Rios — Kindergarten through eighth grade

•   Hurley Ranch — Third through eighth grade

•   Union Elementary — Kindergarten through second grade

 

Our committed and caring teachers will challenge your child while assuring that each student has the support and tools they need to succeed academically and in life. UESD No. 62 provides its students a well-rounded education that includes English language arts, math, science, social studies, visual arts, music, physical education, and social-emotional learning. Our curriculum, which is fully aligned to academic standards adopted by the Arizona State Board of Education, provides a clear road-map of what your child is expected to learn in each grade. The challenging standards at each grade level help prepare your child for high school, college, and career success.

 

Some programs we offer include:

  • Comprehensive curriculum at all schools

Parents Welcome

At UESD No. 62 we believe that fully educating our students is a partnership between the home and school. Parent involvement is paramount to students’ success, and UESD No. 62 offers a variety of opportunities for families to be involved in their child’s school. Each of our schools has a parent/teacher organization (PTO) which is responsible for many campus activities. We encourage our parents to be involved and to contact their school to find out how.
