Script for the August 2022 Vodcast

  • Welcome back and thank you for choosing the Cave Creek Unified School District! Your child/children will receive an outstanding education in our schools. Cave Creek Unified is not merely five elementary schools, one middle school and a high school; it is a caring community of people focused on what is best for students. As a small district with approximately 4,900 students, your child will receive personalized care and attention and will have many opportunities to be challenged and grow. Parents and volunteers are always welcome in our schools and are encouraged to become involved in their child’s education.

    We have many opportunities to promote student success in and out of the classrooms. Our “One Team” rallying cry is to “Inspire Excellence” in our students and drives our goals and priorities for the students in the district. The following are just a few of our highlights:

    • CCUSD consistently scores in the highest range in the state on state-wide assessments in Arizona and is rated #1 District in the North Valley for three years in a row now. 

    • Our schools focus on student achievement from the high school, which offers the prestigious International Baccalaureate program, to our Pre-School and Full-Day Kindergarten programs, all focusing on educating the whole child.  

    • Safety is a priority in Cave Creek.  With campus security and crisis plans securely in place, as well as regular parent Safety Forums focusing on all aspects of student safety, physical and emotional health will be a priority for students.  

    • We provide unique programs for students such as Dual Enrollment, Advanced Placement, Fine and Performing Arts, Horsemanship, World Languages, STEAM, Gifted and Honors, and Career and Technical Education opportunities.

    • Our extra-curricular programs are top notch and offer students a well-rounded education ranging from award-winning athletics to exemplary programs in the fine arts.  These opportunities include stellar preschool programs, before and after school childcare and community education classes year-round.  

    • CCUSD communicates in a timely manner and will make sure you are well informed about your child’s school and our district.  We consistently use school and district newsletters, parent conferences and meetings, a community notification phone system, social media and our website.  All are designed to keep you up-to-date.  

    • Finally, our wonderful Parent Teacher Organizations (PTOs), Site Councils, committees and task forces help strengthen home/school connections and offer an opportunity for your voice to be heard.   

    We would love to have you follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and we are so pleased that you have chosen to become a part of our “Cave Creek Family.”
