Johnson K3

School Photos - First Responders Luncheon
Johnson Primary K-3 held our First Responders Luncheon, extending invitations to first responders from the community including Drexel Heights, Pima County Sheriff's Department, Pascua Yaqui, and Tucson Unified School Safety. The event featured artwork made by students, poetry written and read by student council members and of course a delicious lunch provided by Johnson's PTO, expressing gratitude for their dedication to community safety. Thank you, first responders, for your service!

What Makes Us Special

As Tucson Unified's only primary school serving Pre-K to Third Grade, Johnson has a focus on early language, early cognitive development and, as needed, early intervention. The school puts the children first under the motto: "Teach the child, not the program." Teachers work to build relationships and knowledge beyond textbooks and to connect students to their learning.

Johnson is the only Tucson Unified school and one of only five in Arizona that is only Pre-kindergarten to Third Grade.
