Official School Hours

Welcome to the home of the Red Rock Raiders. We are a small, rural District located in Red Rock, Arizona, centered one hour from Phoenix and thirty minutes from Tucson, Arizona. You’ll find our town in the lower Santa Cruz River Valley, near Picacho Peak State Park. We serve students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Our faculty and staff value each child as an individual, while helping students continually strive for their personal best.

We hope you like our new website. It contains a lot of helpful information, such as the school calendar, news and events going on in our school, and how to get in touch with us. We hope this site will answer any questions you may have about our district. If you are unable to find what you are looking for, please stop in and see us. We are here not only to provide a quality education for our students, but also to serve our community. We would love to see you.

Our Mission

The mission of Red Rock Elementary School District is to provide comprehensive, success-oriented instruction for all students in our growing district. We design learning opportunities to maximize each student’s potential in the areas of academic ability, social and emotional development, physical well-being, cultural and aesthetic awareness, and community contribution and responsibility. Red Rock School District will continue to pursue and implement scientifically research-based educational methods, strategies, and technologies.


Red Rock Elementary School is a professional learning community that ensures each student learns and succeeds in all academic areas and realizes his/her full potential as a positive contributing member of society.

Our Top Priority

The top priority for every school and the district as a whole is to accelerate the continuous improvement of teaching and learning to enable all students to meet high standards.

A Message from our Superintendent

Dear Parents and Students,

Thank you to all our parents who have assisted us in getting our school year off to a great start! We are excited about the year ahead. While we are all aware that the classroom teacher’s role in the successful schooling of children is imperative, we also know that all staff, including teacher assistants, cafeteria staff, office staff, custodians, and bus drivers also play vitally important roles in creating a school environment that is safe, clean, and conducive to student learning. At Red Rock Elementary, all jobs are important and each of us contributes directly to the welfare of our children. I would like all of our staff to know how much we appreciate them! I believe that the real strength of our school lies in the collective talents of an exceptionally well trained and dedicated staff as well as the best and most supportive parents who send us the best students!

We look forward to working with you this year. Together we can make this the best school year yet!  


Lillian Norris, District Administrator
