Welcome to the online home of the St. Johns Unified School District, where we are Achieving Excellence Together! We’re a small district located in Apache County in the northeast corner of Arizona. It’s a tight-knit community of about 4,000—one where we all strive to do our best in all that we do.

We invite you to take some time to get to know our district better. Our schools work hard educating K–12 students in our community using fiscally-sound practices and Arizona Tax Credit donations from parents and community members alike. If you have questions, please contact us. We’re here to serve you!

St Johns Unified School District Community

The St Johns Unified School District Governing Board is in the process of searching for a new district superintendent. To assist in this process the board has secured the support of the Arizona School Boards Association (ASBA). One aspect of the search is to collect the thoughts of community stakeholders related to the position of superintendent. To accomplish this, ASBA has established an E-survey that can access through the district’s web-page beginning January 4, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. The survey will remain open until January 25, 2021, at noon. The board is hoping to collect a large number of responses from community members, staff members, and students. Please take time to access this important survey and respond with your thoughts. We will present the information gathered to the governing board at a future public meeting. Information gathered and presented will not identify individuals who respond to the survey.
Thank you for your support of the St Johns Unified School District.

A Message from Our Superintendent

St. Johns Students, Staff, Parents, and Community:

Welcome to our website! We are proud to offer you this streamlined approach to communicating with you and keeping you informed of everything going on within our walls. We hope you will visit us often for calendar updates, important news and announcements, and helpful resources.

At our four schools, we run a variety of educational programs and applications that your children use on a daily basis. Sometimes you hear about them from your child or from a teacher. Often times it may be an acronym that has no meaning to you. The name may sound familiar to you, but you really aren't sure how we use it in the classroom. We have created a series of short and concise one page information sheets to help parents, teachers, and community members understand better the different educational programs we currently use in the district. If you have ever wondered about “BT” or “DIBELS” or about any of our other programs, please check out the information sheets available on our Educational Programs and Methods page.
