Diversity

Having a diverse student body and honoring the diversity of our community in all that we do is one of City High School’s  6 School Goals:

“City High School brings together and retains students and staff from the many neighborhoods and populations of greater Tucson. The curriculum reflects the varied cultural traditions of southern Arizona. City High School is a community where members recognize and respect diverse identities and points of view.”

City High School’s demographics reflect the diversity of the Tucson community. Students come from every section of the City of Tucson, in addition to Marana, Catalina, Sahuarita, and Vail. Each year between 40% and 50% of families qualify for free or reduced lunch. While the ethnic and racial diversity fluctuates slightly year to year, the general statistics for 2004-2010 are 50% of the student body identify as white, 30-35% Latino, 5-10% Native American/Indian, 5% Asian American, and 5% African American.
