Our town is a namesake of the most recognized symbol of the region, the Saguaro, and roughly translates to “little saguaro.” A look at the surrounding landscape shows you why ranching settlers called it that. Little saguaros can be found everywhere around us, just off the beaten path. The youngest of these fantastic cacti grow under the shade of mesquite and palo verde trees that span our beautiful landscape. You will find history and fun facts about Sahuarita on this page.
The Sahuarita Unified School District (SUSD) encompasses a geographic area of 606 square miles. About 6,000 enrolled students live in the Town of Sahuarita. The district takes great pride in all of its programs and has an outstanding record of its students continuing to further their education at universities, community colleges and technical schools.
