The Yuma Union High School District #70 was organized in July, 1909 to serve the secondary needs of nine elementary districts. Since 1949, the component districts have been reduced to the present number of five.
The first school to open in the YUHSD was Yuma High School in 1909. The school at one time held classes in the vacated territorial prison due to over crowding. As a result, the school mascot is a man dressed in a prisoner uniform, and the name Yuma Criminals has become part of a long standing tradition. Somewhat later, an honor group was formed, known as the "wardens". Although the school has been added onto and renovated on numerous occasions, it still retains some of the flavor of the original building. Stones taken from the territorial prison were even used to construct seating for the baseball field. Those seats are still in use.
Continued growth caused YUHSD to open its second high school, Kofa, in 1959. Kofa (Kings of Arizona) is currently the largest high school in terms of population, housing almost 3000 students. Its sprawling campus holds many fond memories for numerous Kofa graduates who still reside in Yuma.
Vista Alternative School was opened in 1992 to assist students who needed a different learning environment. Students have celebrated many successes over the years.
San Luis High School opened in August 2002 with 850 students in the freshmen and sophomore classes. SLHS is located 20 miles from Yuma in the most southwestern corner of Arizona.
The new high school to be constructed for opening in 2007 will be located in the foothills area on 24th street and Araby road. The school is currently under construction and will serve 1800 students.
