Our District

District LogoLocated in the heart of Historic Central Phoenix, Creighton School District has been a neighborhood staple since 1884. In our 135 years of providing an excellent education for our families, we have seen the neighborhoods evolve into the vibrant and growing community it is today. Our schools are located in some of the fastest growing Phoenix neighborhoods like Arcadia Lite, Green Gables, Loma Linda, Phoenix Homestead, and Monte Vista making Creighton School District a destination district. Encompassing 10 square miles we are home to 9, Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade schools serving approximately 6,400 students. 

The district has been recognized both nationally and internationally for our sound business practices, dual-language program at Biltmore Preparatory Academy, Arizona School Administrators Association for Rookie Principal and Distinguished Administrator Superintendents Division, along with state and national recognition for our communication practices and technology in the classroom. 

The vision of the Creighton School District is to inspire adventurous thinkers, collaborative learners, and kind-hearted leaders. 

Ensuring students are equipped with not only skills to be successful in academics, but also the social/emotional skills necessary for a modern society. Our students are provided opportunities like full-day kindergarten, free and tuition based preschool, mindfulness, gifted and talented, and state recognized special education programs.
