K-2 school celebrates 25 years in TUSD

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON -

25 years ago, TUSD’s Johnson Primary school opened for K-2 students on the Southwest Side. 

The $4.5 million funding for the school came from a 1989 construction bond. 

Johnson Primary is focused on early education, with a mission for every child to master their grade level, regardless of previous academic performance, family background, socioeconomic status, race, or gender. Many of Johnson Primary students come from the Pascua Yaqui tribe.

Also worth noting, the school was named after Harriet Johnson, a TUSD Corbett Elementary School teacher who was killed in a 1990 car crash. Johnson began her TUSD career as a special education teacher at Cholla H.S., was department head at Santa Rita High and served as the principal at Naylor Middle School before moving to Corbett.

Congratulations to everyone at Johnson Primary on 25 years!
