Dear Maricopa Community,
Welcome to Maricopa Unified School District! We proudly serve more than 8,100 students in Preschool through grade 12, and we are GROWING! Maricopa Unified offers dynamic programming and extracurricular opportunities to encourage students to explore and discover their passions. Access to challenging academic coursework, extensive career and technical education options, leadership education, blended learning, and new online classes are just a few distinctions that make MUSD stand out in our community.
I began my position as Superintendent of the Maricopa Unified School District in the Spring of 2018, and in that time, I have learned so much about the values of our community. A rich farming history, our vibrant relationship with community partners, and the Mayor’s focus on developing Maricopa as a New American City reflect the pride and promise that compelled me to work here. Without exception, our classrooms are filled with educators who care deeply about the well-being and development of every child and who work skillfully to prepare them for the chance to lead a life of extraordinary impact.
As I continue to meet parents and families, it is clear to me that their expectations match those of the entire staff regarding the safety, care, and education of their children. We believe every one of us has a role in creating and supporting the schools we want for our children. We invite everyone’s input and embrace the accountability associated with the important promise we will make to our children, their parents, and our entire community.
I believe that schools have the transformative power to shape a community. Together, through the spirit of collaboration and measured action, we will achieve the vision of Maricopa Unified School District, a Premier Educational System, a Destination District in a Destination City.
I would love to give you a personal school tour to showcase the exciting opportunities available to the children and families of Maricopa. Tours are every other Thursday. Give me a call, and I will make you a believer too!
Dr. Tracey Lopeman
