Our K-8 Program

 K-8 Program

Immaculate Heart School students greet each day with prayer an

recitation of our children’s mission statement “to love with the

heart of Jesus, to think with the mind of Jesus, and to work with

the hands of Jesus.”

For more than 100 years, the Immaculate Heart Sisters have been

blessed to be able to serve students and families in their spiritual

and academic formation. The sisters have worked diligently to make Immaculate Heart School known as

one of the most outstanding schools in Tucson and its surrounding communities of Oro Valley and Marana.

Our faculty and administration, along with the strong support of parents, strive to meet the needs of our children as they work intently to accomplish the academic requirements of a curriculum that includes the core subjects, as well as religion and several special enrichment classes.

Our Student Learning Expectations encourage students to live the Cardinal Virtues of Prudence, Temperance, Fortitude, and Justice. We strive to meet the needs of our students as we keep our expectations for their success positive, realistic, and challenging.
