About us

SSA Tucson building with mountains in backgroup

We are a free, public charter K-12 school
with a small-school atmosphere and our staff members have worked together for many years. We frequently hold family events, and pride ourselves on creating a caring, supportive environment that also asks the best from our students. 

Our educational approach.
 SSA Tucson is focused on STEM education -- science, engineering, technology and math -- and college prep, with instruction in writing and the arts, and opportunities for healthy physical activity. We offer a learner-centered education with an emphasis on outcomes, visual aids, and technology integrated education.

Our A-rated elementary school was ranked as the #2 high school in Tucson in 2015 by US News and World Report. In 2017, our high school robotics team competed in the FIRST Robotics Championship - and won.  We participate in statewide and national math, science and art competitions, and emphasize skill-level education with individualized instruction. We provide a rigorous, college prep, STEM-focused education. We emphasize a scientific approach, hands-on work, computer literacy and the ability of students to use data and articulate a thesis.

What our parents say online

My child has been attending SSA for three years and all I can say is that this school has been an inspiration for my child to reach his goals and to keep trying. My child has learned and taken interest in subjects he never took interest in before. 

This school is safe, nurturing, diverse and has great teachers and staff. The teachers at the school are very encouraging, they push the kids to reach their potential. This school is extremely challenging and the teachers are highly qualified and very good. They have very high standards which most students will rise to.

We have found the administration and the teachers very supportive and receptive to parental input. There are students from all different ethnic backgrounds and walks of life at this school and there is a general feeling of tolerance and respect among staff and students.
