School Overview

Higley Unified School District (HUSD) is one of only 15 K-12 school districts in Arizona to receive an 'A' rating by the Arizona Department of Education. While HUSD has a 94 percent graduation rate and 85 percent of their student body goes on to college, a small group of students seemed to consistently fall behind, lose credits, and drop out of school. To reverse this trend, the district created the Higley Learning Center (HLC), a nontraditional, alternative educational program using Edgenuity curriculum. HLC serves a diverse array of at-risk middle and high school students. While the majority are eleventh- and twelfth-grade students looking to recover credits and get back on track for graduation, HLC also enrolls pregnant and homeschooled students as well as students with behavioral and disciplinary problems. Typically, high school students attend HLC full time for core and elective instruction. Some high school students spend the morning in traditional schools and arrive for credit recovery at HLC during the afternoon or after school.
