    Santa Cruz is a great school to send your kids if you are looking for good structure and small atmosphere where the teachers DO pay attention to your children. The kids are well behaved and have manners! The curriculum is striving to be top notch. If your child needs extra help or is falling behind the teachers are on top of your child trying to pull them up. Of course religion is important to the Catholic school and it makes me proud to be a part of the Santa Cruz School Family as I know my kids are well rounded in this school.

  • (11 months ago) is a very humbling little school. However does lack a lot of resources and parental involvement. There is no perfect school. However it really needs some reorganization and structure. You would have to look at the school to get a feel. I think it's on the right road to rebuilding to compare to other catholic schools here in Tucson but still has a way to go. Check it out. Look closely ask questions compare and who knows maybe this is where God wants you to be?

    This school may be the best kept secret in Tucson. From the outside unpretentious and almost hidden by a security wall. On the inside a friendly safe place where student growth and learning is the most important thing. Teachers and all staff are very dedicated and cheerfully "go the extra mile" to help students achieve success. Goals "College and Heaven"

    Santa Cruz is a great school that has an overall professional atmosphere. The school offers a great focus on the fundamentals of academics and catholic believes. The individual attention given to each student is incredible and that s all thanks to the small teacher student ratio and to the absolute dedication and effort from teachers and supportive staff.

    This isw a great little community in the middle of the heart of South Tucson. It needs much help with bringing it up to date. The teachers principal and assitant principle are awesome. The unity in this school makes it feel like home. The childeren are respectful and they are part of the church it also needs much help so if you are interested in donating please do remember they are at a disadvantage due to the location.
