Welcome to Carrillo K-5 Magnet School. We are a highly-performing, “Α+“- rated school located in the heart of downtown Tucson, Arizona. Our magnet school theme, Communication & Creative Arts, is designed to teach students 21st Century skills in arts-integrated thematic units. Instruction is rigorous, and students learn important foundational skills as they participate in relevant Project Based Learning units. Teachers have high expectations for student mastery of the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards.
Carrillo students enjoy field trips to Tucson museums, farms, historic sites, the Desert Museum and our local University of Arizona Campus. Neighborhood traditions, like our Las Posadas events, El Presidio field trips, student Dia de Los Muertos art exhibits at the La Pilita Museum next door, and the annual Luau, are all an important part of our culture.
