I have ajob offer that will take my family to Yuma Arizona. I have four great kids so obviously schools are very important. What area should i look in Yuma to place my children in the best district? Also, what areas in and around Yuma should i look to live. I am not afraid of a 30-45 minute commute if it means better schools/ neighborhoods. Any information would be helpful. Thank you

There are only 2 elementary School districts, and one High School District in the Yuma area. District #1 is elementary and includes all of Yuma and the Foothills area, and the Crane district is mostly the Yuma Valley, south and west of Ave B.

The High School District covers everything west of Telegraph Pass (Exit 14) to the State line and south into San Luis.

My children attended both Crane and District 1, and of course, the High School District.
They Survived.

I am a little opinionated on the subject of schools as I am a retired teacher, and my wife is still working for District #1 I would caution you to ignore the posts that tell you such and such school is the best (or the worst) because those opinions are often based on nothing more than ' I heard that this school does xxxxx.'

The newer schools are in the foothills area, but they are crowded, as are most of the schools in this area. If you are into private schools, there are options here, including a Catholic High School.
