What I love about my school is the devoted staff and teachers I have been fortunate enough to have been educated under. My counselors have provided my class all of the tools and support we need to be successful through thongs such as text reminders, emails, newsletters, field trips, etc. All of my teachers are incredibly kind and ecstatic about the work they get to do. Very happy I go there!
Agua Fria High School is one of the oldest high schools in west valley. The school has become very embedded in its community. While the school is old, the campus has been very well maintained over the years and is constantly being upgraded and improved. The teachers are very good at connecting with students and finding new or alternative ways to engage them. The arts programs have strong funding and there is lots of ways that the faculty and administration gets the student population interested and excited in applying to colleges and scholarships.
