Welcome to the Baboquivari High School and Middle School website! We are located in Sells, Arizona on the Tohono O’odham Indian Reservation, approximately one and a half hours southwest of Tucson.
Our high school and middle school’s philosophy is based on "educating the whole person: academically, emotionally, socially, and culturally," and has proved to be a winning principle.
Here at Baboquivari we are proud of our native heritage and seek to inspire and educate students not only in the Arizona State Standards, but also in their Himdag—the cultural principles the Tohono O’odam tribe lives by. We offer small class sizes perfect for hands-on experiential learning and quality one-to-one time with faculty and staff.
Spend some time getting to know us. We know you’ll like what you find.
The Indian Oasis-Baboquivari Unified School District, in partnership with families and communities, prepares students as leaders by providing a high quality educational environment where students excel with skills and knowledge needed to compete in a global society while retaining traditional values, cultures, and heritage.
Greetings Cougar Families,
The second semester is full with renewed energy and high expectations. Our focus this year has been looking at student data to help us adjust instruction to meet the needs of every student. We are seeing positive progress in student learning. Our students' critical thinking and reasoning is apparent not only in the classroom, but also in their athletic events, FFA events, and community involvement.
As we get closer to State testing, I am hopeful that our students will have the thinking skills to excel on the AzMERIT. Our students understand the importance of demonstrating effective effort; that hard work and perseverance are the keys to meeting their goals.
Thank you, parents, and guardians, for being a partner with us in your child's education. We could not do it without your support. Your child's success is important to us. Please make sure your child is in school every day.
Yolanda Nuñez, Principal
Baboquivari Secondary Campus
Our students will be academically prepared, know their Himdag, and have life skills to excel.
