It was in 1949 that area residents began the steps necessary to form a local school district. By 1954, the community children attended school in two barracks that had been purchased from Osborn School District and situated on what was to become the first J.O. Combs Unified School site.
J.O. and Mamie Combs generously donated 5.42 acres of land and the district was subsequently named after Mr. Combs.
However, the school was still a part of the Apache Junction School District and didn't become the J.O. Combs Unified School District #44 until 1958. Our first Governing Board Members were Mr. J.O. Combs, Mr. Walter P. Gantzel, and Mr. Jack Schnepf.
As our school district and community grow, we are committed to preserving the small school atmosphere where students and families are known by staff and treated with respect as well as providing educational experiences in which the entire family can participate and be proud.
Thank you parents, students, staff, and community. Our combined efforts show in the results, and the results speak for themselves - together we make a difference.
