The Superior Unified School District (SUSD) is a Title I district. The designation provides additional funding to reinforce our reading and math foundations. It also allows our students to receive 100% free/reduced breakfastIlunch. SUSD has partnered with the Vail Unified School District in order to implement the Arizona college and career ready standards into our K – 12 classrooms through the Beyond Textbook curriculum guides and maps. The district is also a member of the Cobre Valley Institute of Technology. CVIT assists the district in offering programs such as culinary arts, hospitality, welding, nursing, and fire science to our students. In addition, we have built valued relationships with the Town of Superior, Superior Chamber of Commerce, Superior Rotary, Superior Optimist Club, Superior Little League, Boyce Thompson Arboretum, Red Bear Outfitters and Resolution Copper Mining Corporation. Resolution Copper has provided continued support for our athletics programs, nature club, hiking club, beyond text books, DECCA/FCCLA and staff appreciation events.
