Paradise Valley Unified School District is the 7th largest school district in the state of Arizona with four high schools accepting international students. All the district’s high schools offer Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors courses and a wide variety of extracurricular and after-school activities to keep students engaged and stimulated, intellectually and physically. Many of the high schools in the Paradise Valley Unified School District have exceptional programs like the prestigious International Baccalaureate (IB) at North Canyon High.
Some of the district’s outstanding facilities include Horizon High School’s recently remodeled 1,000-seat auditorium and North Canyon High School’s large capacity artificial-turf football stadium. Because Phoenix has great weather year round, all campuses have beautiful park-like settings with lunch tables, benches and lots of open-air areas for kids to gather and enjoy a healthy outdoor lifestyle.
Sports and Arts
All students are encouraged to pursue their interests whether that be on one of the competitive athletics teams/clubs or playing an instrument. The arts program is particularly impressive and includes unique course offering such as culinary arts, architectural drafting and photojournalism.
The city of Phoenix has the largest population in Arizona and is ranked one of the fastest-growing cities in the US. The area has become internationally recognized as an exclusive tourist destination because of its characteristic identity and culture. Phoenix has just about everything an international student needs in the way of sports, recreation, arts, culture, and dining.
