Dear Students, Parents, Staff and Community Members:

Welcome to the 2016 - 17 school year. Our union high school district is fully accredited by AdvancED and we are celebrating our 19th  straight year of growth in the west valley. With the help of our community, and recent state legislative support for funding, we are positioned to start design and construction on our 5th high school. The passage during the 2015 - 16 school year by our community of a 70 million dollar bond has paved the way for us to manage this growth successfully. Families, businesses, and educators are continuing to see that the communities of Avondale, Goodyear, and Buckeye  are  great places to live, work, and raise a family. We are extremely grateful of this support and continue our commitment to provide the very best education possible for our students.
We continue to take our mission of preparing ALL students to be "College and Career Ready" very seriously. Our academic programs and services have been highly competitive and we continue to seek success in preparing students for post-secondary opportunities. I encourage you to review our Annual Report which you can find linked to the homepage of our website. I'd also welcome you to join us by attending a school event, lending your expertise to the various educational committees available, and being a resource to our schools as a volunteer. We have many success stories to share but the next chapter is still to be written. Best of wishes to our graduates moving forward and a heartfelt welcome to our largest incoming class ever.
