The Tri-Community Area
San Manuel, Arizona, has a history dating back to 1953. An old mining town, San Manuel operated one of the largest copper and smelter mines in North America. Our community served to house over 2,000 miners and related field workers. The San Manuel Copper Mine closed in 1999, and now our town is a small bedroom community serving over 1,200 families.
Here at Mammoth-San Manuel Unified, we have approximately 1,110 students enrolled in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Our schools serve students in the tri-community towns of Oracle, Mammoth, and San Manuel. There are three schools in our district: San Manuel Junior/Senior High School, First Avenue Elementary, and Mammoth Elementary. We employ 175 teachers and staff and are the largest employer in the area.
