Public School District – Phoenix , Arizona

Providing students with the best education possible is the first priority of teachers and staff members in Deer Valley Unified School District.

The school district is always looking for new programs that students will take an interest in and challenge themselves with. The district will soon be welcoming new electives and AP courses to their curriculum including: Art Humanities, Computer Applications, Accounting, and Information Technology.

Community Information
Located to the north of Phoenix, Glendale and Peoria are two of several cities that schools in DVUSD call home. All cities where schools are located are about one hour or less outside of Phoenix.

Glendale is home to Fiesta Bowls and the 2008 Super Bowl, offers travelers a wide variety of amenities including the famous Historic Downtown shopping district, legendary special events and festivals, museums and cultural attractions, and a growing number of professional sports facilities.

Peoria is a city rich in history and it continues to grow. Similar to Glendale, it has a variety to offer. In July 2008, Money Magazine listed Peoria in the "Top 100 Places to Live".

Phoenix is the capital and the most populous city of Arizona as well as being the largest state capital in the United States by population. It is the region’s primary political, cultural, economic, and transportation center. Incorporated in 1881, Phoenix is young by historical standards but now ranks as one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation. Residents and businesses will find that Phoenix offers just about everything in the way of sports, recreation, arts, culture, dining, lodging and financial opportunities. Because of the beautiful weather, activities can be enjoyed year-round.
