About Our Community

The Tempe Elementary School District serves families in three communities: Tempe, Phoenix and Guadalupe.

Tempe

Tempe, Arizona's eighth largest city, has successfully blended the dynamics of a high-tech business center, the fun and excitement of a resort, the warmth and comfort of a residential neighborhood, and the 'small town' atmosphere of a college community, to make it the progressive city that Tempe is.

Phoenix

As Arizona's largest metropolitan area and the nation's sixth largest city in terms of population, Phoenix is known for its weather with more than 300 days of sunshine on average per year. Winter, fall and spring offer mild temperatures, perfect for a round of golf at one of the area's more than 180 courses or a hike through South Mountain Park, one of the Valley's many mountain preserves.

Guadalupe

The community of Guadalupe is a very special place to live. Guadalupe is only a one mile radius community made up of approximately 6,400 residents who are mostly Hispanic and Yaqui people. About 40% of the population are Yaqui and this makes the town unique. Many families still observe and respect old traditions both in the Hispanic and Yaqui cultures through celebrations and fiestas. Guadalupe is small in size but rich in culture and traditions.
