Our Mission

Chino Valley Unified School District innovatively provides for the learning needs of all students, families, staff and community

About Us!

The Chino Valley Unified School District # 51 represents four school facilities in the Town of Chino Valley, is located 90 miles North of Phoenix, Arizona and encompasses 421 square miles. Del Rio Elementary (constructed in 1982) houses First through Fourth Grade students. Territorial Elementary (constructed in 1999) houses our Kindergarten students. Both schools house fully equipped Internet accessible computer labs,  full gymnasiums and have both breakfast and lunch programs.

Heritage Middle School embraces the true middle school concept for Fifth through Eighth graders. It also offers band and choral programs to students.

Located in the center of town, Chino Valley High School offers a comprehensive academic education that includes the arts, and an extensive extracurricular program.  We pride ourselves in our ability to challenge the most able students as well as providing opportunities for success for the less able. Our academic program includes Honors Programs in Math, English, Social Studies and Spanish.  Our vocational programs in Agriculture, Business, and Culinary Arts have received national recognition. Our music and art programs have received many state awards.  Our partnership with Yavapai College has provided many students with additional academic and career and technical education opportunities. Our commitment to technology use has created five computer lab environments for students. Our parents have web-based access to student attendance, grades, and teacher email.

The District operates under the supervision of a five member Governing Board and one District Superintendent. The District presently employs 210 administrative, certified and support staff.

Our schools have won many awards including National Blue Ribbon, the State Champion on the Presidential Physical Fitness program, and we are designated a State Fine Arts Site.
