Tucson, Arizona (KGUN) — More students are back in class on Thursday morning. The 2023-2024 school year begins in Alter Valley, Amphi, Flowing Wells, Tanc Verde, and the Tucson Unified School District.
Doolen Middle School in the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) welcomes nearly 600 students on its first day. Wilma, Wilbur, and the University of Arizona track and field team will be welcoming students and their families back to campus.
This school year, all students at Doulen Middle School will be required to take classes in the AVID program. The AVID program is a tool to prepare middle school students for higher education and the workforce.
“We are a uniformed school. We want our students to treat our school as a professional place.We want our staff to treat our school as a professional place. That’s the key, and it’s never too early to prepare students for college and careers,” said Natalie Santin, Principal of TUSD’s Doolen Middle School.
Doulen Middle School is also an open enrollment school. So, if your student still needs to attend middle school, Doolen welcomes any student to enroll and become part of the campus community on day one and throughout the year.
“It’s not just academic growth. It’s also social and emotional growth,” Santin said. “We are committed to personal responsibility and personal acceptance for children this year through our strong strategic program.” I hope ”
Doolen Middle School has also been named the next ‘Be Kind’ school through Ben’s Bells and will soon have a new mural painted on the school.
