Mohave Middle School for grades 7 and 8, and Desert Canyon Middle School for grades 6,7 and 8.

Mission

Preparing every student for success in college, career and life.
 
Welcome to Phoenix Union High School District!
Phoenix Union High School District is one of the largest high school districts in the country, with 16 schools, over 27,000 students, and nearly 3,000 employees.  Phoenix Union covers 220-square miles of Arizona’s capital city.  If the K-8 students in its 13 elementary partner schools were included, it would be among the 25 largest school districts in the United States, with over 110,000 students.
 
The District has 11 comprehensive high schools, two specialty small schools and three alternative schools.  There are a number of programs that make Phoenix Union unique.  Among those, are:

12 magnet programs at seven schools, including a magnet high school, Metro Tech. Students from throughout the District can enroll in magnets such as Aviation/Aerospace, Computer Studies, Marine Science, Medical and Health Studies, Multimedia Communications, Law Studies, Visual and Performing Arts.

30 Career and Technical Education areas of study that 7,500 students are enrolled in at any one time, and a school that houses 22 programs for half-day vocational blocks.
Arizona’s first Cambridge International Centre at Central High School, offering the prestigious Cambridge curriculum and examinations.
 
Two schools, North and Betty Fairfax, with the International Baccalaureate Program

Bioscience High School, a small specialty school ranked among the top schools in Arizona, with rigorous science and math-focused curriculum, career pathways, internships and 100 percent college placement.

Franklin Police and Fire High School, a small school specializing in public safety careers such as law enforcement, firefighting and emergency medical services

ACT Quality Core curriculum at most schools. All students take the ACT EXPLORE, PLAN and the ACT Exam for free.

AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) college preparatory electives at 11 schools with 1500 students and 250 AVID-trained teachers.

Suns-Diamondbacks Education Academy, a small alternative school with accelerated, personalized classes that turn students at risk of dropping into high school graduates.

The first Montessori High School program in Arizona at Camelback.

Evening School at several sites and Free summer school for continuing students, as well as incoming 9th.
   
Academically, there are over 500 courses to choose from. Rigor continues to be the emphasis, as the District offers more Honors, AP and other high level courses than ever before, and student enrollment in those classes is the highest ever. Students are earning college credit and accelerating their academics through community college dual enrollment, and “Move On When Ready,” an initiative that can earns students the Grand Canyon Diploma early, and move on to college.
 
Diversity is a hallmark at The Phoenix Union--94% of its students are minority, including 80% Latino, and the students, including a large refugee population, represent over 60 languages.  More than half of the students come from a home where English is not the primary language spoken.
 
Student support is important at Phoenix Union.  Every comprehensive high school has a nurse, social worker, psychologist, dean of students, security staff, School Resource Officer, a community liaison, interventionist and a team of academic counselors with the best counselor-to-student ratio in Arizona.  Its Special Education Department is a model for school districts, offering services for gifted to medically fragile, hearing impaired and children with autism.  The English Language Learner program is as comprehensive as any in the state, from placement to testing to reclassification.

Phoenix Union schools offer a full array of activities and opportunities for students.  Student Government, Yearbook and Newspaper, Academic Decathlon, Speech and Debate, DECA and National Honor Society are just a sampling.  There are 11 Army Junior ROTC programs with over 1800 student-cadets.  Enrollment in performing and visual arts classes increased by 2000 students in the past five years, while bands,ensembles, choirs, dance troupes and theatre offer extracurricular opportunities.  There are 21 interscholastic sports available, and over 6,000 boys and girls participate.  Almost 700 clubs, with 50 or more on most campuses cover everything from robotics to recycling, step teams to chess teams.

Partnerships with government, colleges and universities, nonprofits and businesses abound, affording innovative programming, grants, student internships and scholarships. For instance, Science Foundation Arizona gave its largest school grant ever to Metro Tech to integrate sustainability into its curriculum and project learning.  In 2013, seniors earned $40 million in merit scholarships and millions more in  grants and financial aid.

Unlike many urban school districts, Phoenix Union is fiscally sound, its enrollment is growing, and it attracts highly qualified teachers whose experience, educational attainment and compensation are well above the state average. PUHSD’s facilities are spacious, modern, technologically advanced, well-maintained and safe, thanks to the community supporting two bond elections for over $400 million for construction, renovation and maintenance since 2003. The most recent wave of construction included four new schools, and major campus renovation at two others.

Phoenix Union is a school district with a glorious past, a successful present, and a promising future as it prepares every student for success in college, career and life. 

Phoenix Union has clean, safe and modern facilities, outstanding teachers who receive top pay, innovative programs and schools that are “Performing Plus” according to state accountability standards. Unlike many struggling urban school districts, Phoenix Union has drastically improved graduation rates, reduced dropout rates, and closed the “Achievement Gap” so often cited between high minority, low income districts and national averages.
 
Instructional technology is one area where Phoenix Union sets itself apart from most districts. With significant funding from a supportive community and a commitment to the future, the district is leading the way in Arizona bringing technology into the classrooms and into the hands of its’ teachers and students.  Technology is changing the way teachers teach and students learn. 
 
 
Phoenix Union Interscholastic Athletics
Phoenix Union High School District has a long tradition of excellence in interscholastic athletics. We believe that athletic participation can play a significant role in the District’s mission of preparing every student for success in college, career and life. Athletics and extracurricular activities develop the whole student, providing learning opportunities and experiences beyond the classroom. These activities often reveal and strengthen new skills, while improving grades, attendance, motivation, graduation and post-secondary attendance. Athletic competition demands discipline, leadership, teamwork and responsibility while enhancing self-esteem and healthy habits that can last a lifetime. It is Phoenix Union’s goal to encourage and support maximum student participation with affordable athletics, quality coaches and outstanding facilities.
 
Ten comprehensive high schools - Alhambra, Betty Fairfax, Camelback, Carl Hayden, Cesar Chavez, Central, Maryvale, North, South Mountain and Trevor Browne compete in up to 13 Arizona Interscholastic Athletics (AIA) sports divided into three seasons-Fall, Winter and Spring. There are 11 sports for girls and 10 sports for boys, including seven sports that have both girls and boys teams. Many of the sports offer Freshman, Junior Varsity and Varsity teams.

Metro Tech High School competes in the Charter Athletic Association in boys and co-ed soccer, girls volleyball and girls and boys basketball and cross country.

About Roosevelt School District
Roosevelt School District #66 was established in Phoenix, Arizona in 1912. The first Roosevelt School District School was located south of the Phoenix City Center on the corner of what is now 7th Street and Southern. 

One of the community’s first schools was the Broadway School, a small, one-room brick building; the typical “little red school house.” The other was the Heard Ranch School. The Heard School was the namesake of Dwight B. Heard, an influential resident of the area. Shortly after the District was organized in 1912, it was offered two sites for a new consolidation school by the Bartlett-Heard Estate. The site at what is now Seventh Street and Southern was chosen over a site that became Central and Southern for the building, formally named the Consolidated School.
 
The area’s rapid growth made it apparent the Consolidated School would have to be expanded beyond its three classrooms, which already were taxed to their limits by the school’s 150 students. Arrangements soon were made to house students in the Neighborhood House across the street, and construction was begun on expanding the original school and two new school buildings. The naming of the District is further indication of how the Roosevelt District was woven into the fabric of the state’s history. 

There were very few roads in the District’s early days. Southern Avenue did not exist and students reached the school by walking or riding horses or burros along the bank of “San Francisco Ditch” from Central Avenue. Homesteaders of Anglo and Hispanic descent were the District’s original population. Mexican laborers came later to work the farms. The population increased rapidly and a twelve-room addition was built in 1921. 
 
The burgeoning population made it necessary to provide more classrooms. This was done when schools were built on the east and a west end of the District, but this accommodation was minimal and short-lived. When the East End School burned down, the West End School was abandoned and buses were bought to transport all students to Roosevelt School.
 
The original Roosevelt School, located at 6000 S. 7th Street, Phoenix, AZ, was destroyed in a fire on April 5, 1985. The classroom wings we demolished in 1986, and the new administration’ center opened in December 1987 on the old Roosevelt School site. The school bell that hung in the tower of the original school building survived the fire and now sits on bricks salvaged from the 1985 fire in the vestibule of the District Office Building.
 
The District boundaries are the Salt River to the north, South Mountain to the south, 40th Street to the east and 35th Avenue on the west.
 
What began as a 15-pupil district in the late 1800s grew into a district serving more than 12,000 students and 1,400 employees in 21 schools by 2008. Now, Roosevelt is one of the largest employers in south Phoenix.

What is AZMERIT AZMERIT Q&A?
AZMERIT (Arizona’s Measurement of Educational Readiness to Inform Teaching) is Arizona’s new statewide achievement test. Arizona is partnering with the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to develop tests which are unique to Arizona.
 
How is AZMERIT different from the AIMS test?
Arizona’s Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) tested the old standards. Spring 2014 was the last time AIMS was administered for reading, writing, and mathematics.

AZMERIT, based on the new standards, will tell teachers, students, and parents if students are on track to be college and career ready upon graduation from high school.
 
The Arizona Science Standards did not change, so students in Grades 4, 8, and high school will still take the AIMS Science test.

High school students graduating after December 31, 2016 will no longer be required to pass the AIMS test to graduate high school.

Who will take AZMERIT?
Arizona public school students in Grades 3 through high school will take AzMERIT.
Students in Grades 3 through 8 will take an assessment in English language arts and mathematics at their grade level.

Students taking high school level English and mathematics will take End-of-Course assessments that will test their proficiency in these subjects.

Only eligible students with significant cognitive disabilities will participate in other alternate achievement tests.

When will the test be given?
Students will take Az MERIT in the spring of 2015. The testing window for schools administering the computer-based test is March 30-May 8, 2015. The testing window for the paper-based test is April 13-24, 2015. Schools will inform students and parents of specific testing dates within these windows. DVUSD will post the AzMERIT test schedules for our schools with the assessment dates for English language Arts and Mathematics in late February.

Our School

We enjoy sharing the many things about Fountain Hills High School that make us unique:

    Our size: FHHS is a small (560 students in grades 9-12), community-based school with the programs and opportunities of a “big city” school.

    Our community: We enjoy strong partnerships with our parents and our community members. From the Town of Fountain Hills, to small business partners, to our parents, our community takes its role in public education seriously.

    Individualization: With a smaller student body, our staff members are able to support students’ individual needs in creative and innovative ways.

    Our close-knit campus community: Our student body values the familiarity, safety, and collegiality of our small school.

    Crown-jewel programs: All of our courses and activities are excellent at FHHS. However, the following specialty programs earned their place in the spotlight for the high degree of creativity, innovation, and measurable success they demonstrate.

        Band and choir: highly decorated and central to the school’s culture and visibility.

        Fine arts: award-winning artists (staff and students!) with exemplary record post-secondary placement and success

        Advanced Placement & honors courses: 24 weighted courses to challenge the academically gifted.

        Robotics & engineering: Nationally recognized and decorated competitive robotics team.

        Athletics: Recent Arizona Division III State Champions in baseball (2013), girls soccer (2014), and girls basketball (2014). We were recognized for overall excellence by the AIA in 2013 & 2014.

        Service & leadership: More than 200 students participate in the following service and leadership organizations: Key Club, Falcon Leadership, Student Government, and National Honor Society.

        Special education: Exemplary record of inclusion, accommodation, and support for students with unique special needs.

    Student life and extracurricular programs: Students and parents rave about our extracurricular opportunities. We offer a list of sports and clubs that is comparable to that of any “big school” in the valley.

    Our beautiful campus: Come take a tour of our campus and you will discover one of the most picturesque school settings in the country. When originally built in 1992, the architects took tremendous care to capitalize on the natural beauty of the land and the vistas that surround us. We were named one of the Valley's Most Beautiful Schools by the Arizona Republic in 2014.

    Our graduates: Fountain Hills High School graduates are smart, competitive, and successful in their college and career pathways after high school.
