What Makes Us Special

Carrillo K-5 Communication and Creative Art Magnet School is a highly-performing, “Α+“- rated school, located in the heart of downtown Tucson. The school’s magnet school theme is Communication & Creative Arts and 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 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!


Carrillo Magnet Elementary school has been awarded The A+ School of Excellence award by the Arizona Educational foundation. The whole school turned out to celebrate in style.

  • Face-Covering Policy


    Hello Tucson Unified Families and Staff,

    Thursday, March 25th, Governor Doug Ducey released a new Executive Order 2021-06 that rescinds a number of previous Executive Orders that have been put in place due to COVID-19. 

    However, it is important to note that this new Executive Order does not include or rescind Executive Order 2020-51 or the emergency order from Arizona Department of Health Services AZDHS Emergency Measure 2020-04  that specifically requires school districts to have a face-covering policy in place.   

    The AZDHS Emergency Measure 2020-04 states:

    Masks must be worn on school campuses, on school buses, and during school-associated activities, by all students, faculty, staff, contractors, and visitors.

    Therefore, at this time, in line with Executive Order 2020-51 and AZDHS Emergency Measure 2020-04, Tucson Unified School District is required to continue with the existing face-covering policy on our properties and our campuses. Tucson Unified School District’s face covering regulation can be found here, along with our other COVID-19 mitigation policies.

    Thank you again for your ongoing support as we work together to support the health and wellbeing of our students, families, and the wider community.

    Stay Safe and healthy


    Dr. Gabriel Trujillo

    Superintendent, Tucson Unified School District
