Home In Verrado
Verrado High School is an innovative school focused on promoting rigor through a relevant curriculum and positive relationships. Administrators created a small-school environment by splitting up the students into four houses of 400 kids and assigning the students in each house the same teachers in math, science, and English. The schools-within-a-school structure that Verrado High School has adopted is one way to create an intimate learning environment that allows for close relationships among students and teachers that lead to success. Verrado supports the Agua Fria High School District’s mission of “All Students College Ready”. The school was recognized as “Highly Performing” by the Arizona Department of Education and was recently acknowledged for its dramatic improvement in test scores. Please visit the school district website for more information.
