Our Vision
(Promise for Tommorrow)

Maricopa Schools are communities of resilient learners. All students and staff understand that the more they know, the more there is to learn. Students are eager to come to school, successful in learning, and, when they graduate, are prepared for their futures. Instructors are excited about teaching, and constantly stretch and expand their resources to find ways to engage their students.

The staff believes that all students can learn. All staff members are role models for students. Students see Maricopa staff as working hard for the students and parents of the district. Parents are enthusiastic and actively involved in their children's classes and in school activities.

The school is the center of the community. Facilities are clean, safe, and well maintained. All members of the school community: students, staff, and parents, have adequate input in the school plan and programs. Turnover of school staff does not affect the culture of the school.


Our Mission
(Promise for Today)

The mission of the Maricopa Unified School District is to work in partnership with parents, students, and the community to provide a rigorous educational program, in a caring and nurturing environment, that promotes lifelong learning and prepares students for the academic and technical expectations of higher education and industry.

Maricopa Community Profile

Maricopa is a city in Kern County, California.  Incorporated in 1911, Maricopa is located 6.5 miles (10 km) south-southeast of Taft, at an elevation of 883 feet (269 m).  Maricopa lies at the junction of Route 166 and Route 33.  The Carrizo Plain is located to the northwest, and the enormous Midway-Sunset Oil Field, the third largest oil field in the United States, is adjacent on the north and east.

With only a Shell gasoline station, Subway sandwich shop, Maricopa Inn motel, post office, Head Start preschool, and a Kindergarten-12th (K-12) grade school, Maricopa is a small city in the southwest San Joaquin Valley, which retains its rural country flavor.

The city has a total area of 1.5 square miles (3.9 km2), all of it land.  Maricopa is in the extreme southwestern corner of the San Joaquin Valley, on the first rise of land into the foothills of the Coast Ranges, and the Temblor Mountains. The San Andreas Fault runs northwest and the San Emidio Mountains run southeast of Maricopa. The climate of the area is hot and semi-arid, with summertime temperatures routinely exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit.  Freezes occur in the winter, with the mean period without freezes being about 275 days.  About six inches of rain falls annually in Maricopa.
