We are located just east of Scottsdale, Arizona and west of the McDowell Mountains. FHUSD has four schools:
We serve approximately 2500 students. Our district covers more than 19 square miles and draws students from the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation as well as other students whose parents prefer that they attend FHUSD (see Open Enrollment).
Our staff of highly qualified teachers work hand-in-hand with our administrators to assure that a strong educational curriculum is the focal point of the daily instructional program here at FHUSD. We also enjoy strong community involvement and the district enjoys the contribution of the Fountain Hills Mentoring Program, which pairs Fountain Hills' residents with elementary students who are in need of extra academic attention.
The town is named for the centerpiece and landmark, which sends a snow-white stream of water 560 feet into our blue desert sky, known as one of the "World's Highest Fountains" and our community consists of rolling hills and spectacular mountain views. Our town's residents enjoy a high quality of life, many enticing recreational activities, and some of the finest weather in the country. But, we're proudest of the fact that our schools rank among the highest in Arizona student achievement.
