Cholla is a magnet high school (drawing students from the entire district) in the Tucson Unified School District and serves over 1,700 students, grades 9-12.

Opened in 1969 on the west side of Tucson, Arizona, Cholla High Magnet School has become widely-known as the high school that former San Antonio Spur Sean Elliott attended before enrolling at the University of Arizona.
