Higley is a community of schools designed to share a common commitment to education and achievement for our youth and a sense of well-being for all. We focus on providing continuity from preschool to high school with a well-rounded education including academics, music, arts, languages, athletics, physical education, technology and character education. Our performance meets and exceeds state standards in academics, and our students are champions both on and off the field. We are tenaciously focused on each student's learning, and we take the guesswork out of education with data-driven instruction and accountability.
