About Our District



The Oracle School District is one of 19 public school districts located in Pinal County, Arizona. The Oracle Elementary School District was organized in 1905. The Oracle School District is the second oldest school district in Pinal County. The District encompasses 314 square miles which include Eagle Crest Ranch, a family residential development, SaddleBrooke, and SaddleBrooke Ranch retirement communities, the unincorporated town of Oracle, and the outlying areas of Willow Springs and Falcon Valley. The Oracle School District provides a program of public instruction from preschool to grade eight with an estimated enrollment of approximately 400 students.

The District and the town of Oracle have its roots in the mining industry. The community began to grow in the late 1870’s when gold and silver were discovered and the Christmas and New Year mines were opened. In 1952 the Magma Copper Company developed its first mining production shafts kicking off the era of the San Manuel Magma Copper mine. In its hay day, the Magma Copper Mine employed over 1,200 people and produced more than 700 million tons of copper until finally closing in 2003. The transition from a mining town to a bedroom community consisting of retirees and commuters has been a major challenge for the District and the local economy. The Oracle School District is steadily gaining enrollment and has a very bright future.


Our Campus

Currently, the Oracle School District operates a preschool through eighth-grade school called Mountain Vista located in the beautiful community of Oracle located just north of Tucson. Mountain Vista has approximately 400 students and provides many unique learning opportunities best summarized by our motto, Small Town Roots, Global Expectations. Mountain Vista School utilizes math, science, and language arts curricula which fosters problem solving, critical thinking, and 21st century skills. Our students engage in special programs including art education, physical education, Tech Academy, and have the opportunity to take their learning off campus and into the community through educational field trips. The Oracle School District is an elementary school district which means our high school students have the choice to attend Canyon Del Oro or San Manuel High School.
