Welcome to Continental School District, home of the Continental Colts! We are a small school district located in Green Valley, Arizona, approximately 20 miles south of Tucson, and 40 miles north of Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. There are many exciting and beautiful things to see here in our area of the desert southwest.
Our school serves around 550 students in preschool through 8th grade. We are very proud of our outstanding students and dedicated teachers. Because of their efforts, our school received the “Excelling School” title in 2007 from the Arizona Department of Education. We have high expectations for the students in our care and we are devoted to their success.
Continental uses automated forms of communication when contacting parents/guardians and students. You may receive an automated phone call (ie. Robocall), e-mail, or both. It is very important that we have up to date contact information on file in case of emergencies. Please make sure the Demographics Sheet we have on file is up to date, and remember to contact the school with any changes throughout the school year.
Continental School District will provide a community environment in which all individuals are challenged to achieve excellence in academics, character, and life skills.
Building for the Future - Learning, Cooperating, and Caring
Student Registration: Registration is ongoing at Continental School. Families new to the area need to remember to bring birth certificate, proof of residence, report card, school transcript, or address of the former school, and health records. Students new to our school will enjoy the new classrooms, remodeled cafeteria, and renovated middle school (new carpet and paint this summer). All Continental students have the use of i-pads (K-3) and Transformer tablets (4-8) complete with wifi in the classrooms. We offer gifted program, technology, music, health, and PE. Middle school students have the opportunity to take an elective class each quarter.
Open Enrollment: Open enrollment is available in some grades including 1st and 2nd grade Spanish Immersion Program, a dual language program for parents who want their children to learn Spanish as a second language. Parents who wish to discuss the programs at Continental and have a tour may call Dr. Juettner, 520-625-4581, ext. 7305 for an appointment. We are rebuilding our campus so please excuse the mess this summer.
Full Day Kindergarten: Continental parents and guardians will be pleased to learn that beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, Continental will be offering free full day kindergarten classes. The district is currently enrolling for kindergarten and hopes to offer a Spanish Immersion kindergarten class if enough parents request this option. If you have a kindergarten student and wish to request Spanish Immersion, please contact the district office at (520) 625-4581 or stop by the school for more information.
Construction Update: Completion of the two new buildings is scheduled for spring, 2014.
