I really enjoyed my high school experience because of all the opportunities available. Along with the variety of hands-on classes and partnering with technical education facilities, there is so much to learn! I was able to earn my high school diploma, my CPR certification, my telecommunications certification for dispatching, 14 dual enrollment credits, a student mastery in Culinary Arts, and so much more by the time I graduated high school!

In this district you will feel like a family. Even though we do not all go to the same school, you still get to know others from different high schools and I think that is amazing! Personally I got to know more people from other high schools because of student council. In student council all the high schools in the district get together several times a year to come up with new ideas and just simply to have fun! I love this about our district, because even though we go to different schools no one is better than another we are all equal and a family connect by our district.
Great place to attend school and feel a part of something!
Band program along with club activities are really awesome and I've enjoyed attending this school district. Sports programs as well as academic programs are some of the best in the state and will be for sometime I'm sure. Great community involvement and not too worried about safety as students, along with staff, and parents feel fairly safe in and around the community as a whole. District prides itself in trying to be top notch and one of the best in preparing students not only for college, but also for career and life. We've lived in the Peoria community for over 17 years and have only great things to say about it. Amazing places to shop, eat, and visit with friends/family and great place to watch spring training baseball games. I would not want to live no other place and raise a family in no other community than Peoria, Arizona.
