Carrillo K-5 Communication and Creative Art Magnet School is a nationally recognized, Certified Magnet Demonstration school that has been recognized as an A+ school of excellence. We are a diverse school, located in the heart of downtown in historic Barrio Viejo. Our magnet infused curriculum is designed to teach students 21st Century skills through arts-integrated thematic units. In addition to mastery of the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards through rigorous project based learning units, students participate in fine and performing arts, and technology specialist classes weekly which directly connect with core learning experiences.
Carrillo students enjoy field trips to Tucson museums, farms, historic sites, the Desert Museum and our local University of Arizona Campus. Neighborhood traditions, like the Las Posadas events, El Presidio field trips and the annual Luau, are all an important part of our culture. We are a Ben's Bells Kind Campus and strive to ensure that everyone that walks through our doors feel like they are part of the Carrillo family. Please call us to schedule a tour today!
