"The Tanque Verde District is located in the verdant Tanque Verde Valley (Northeast edge of Tucson). The 77 square mile district is bounded on the north by the beautiful Catalina Mountains and on the east by the Rincon Mountains. The colorful history of the Tanque Verde Valley is reflected in its name. "Tanque Verde" means "green tank" in Spanish and is probably a reference to an algae filled stock watering tank in the area. Two seasonal watercourses, the Tanque Verde Wash and the Agua Caliente Wash, traverse the valley. The Valley is rich in western history. This area was frequently visited by Apache Indians as well as soldiers from nearby Ft. Lowell.

When the District was first organized in 1886, the Tanque Verde Valley was very remote from Tucson. Residents of the tiny Tanque Verde settlement and Valley ranchers decided to create a school close to home. They chose an adobe building in the area of Freeman Road and Speedway Boulevard to house the new school. Tanque Verde became District 13 when the "new" school on the other side of the Tanque Verde Wash was built in 1923 (the present Lew Sorenson Educational Resource Center).

The District is composed of four schools: Agua Caliente Elementary (K-6), Tanque Verde Elementary (K-6), Emily Gray Junior High (7-8) and Tanque Verde High School, currently 9-10, growing to 9-12 in the 2007-2008 school year. Today there are over 1400 students enrolled in the four schools. The District has an operating budget of approximately 8.2 million dollars and employs 213 certified and classified personnel." - Tanque Verde School District Web Site
