• As a member of the greater Yuma region, you have a vested interest and play a vital role in the success of our community’s students. It’s your investment in our public schools as taxpayers and the high expectations you hold for all students that make it possible for Yuma Union High School District to be a place “where great minds grow.” 

    Recognizing our role in helping to generate a pipeline of talented and skilled individuals to lead in our community, fill our jobs, contribute to Yuma’s growth, and fuel our long-term prosperity, YUHSD is providing our students with a unique academic experience called Ready Now Yuma.

    Ready Now Yuma is an initiative of YUHSD and Helios Education Foundation to ensure every student graduates prepared to succeed in college and career. Through Ready Now Yuma, every student participates in a rigorous, high expectations program of study within a college-going environment.

    As a result, our students are exposed to hands-on learning and real-world discussions across their courses whether math, science, language arts, or history. All assignments and activities are constructed to develop critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and communication skills — all of which are in high demand by employers, colleges, and our community.

    So whether our students aspire to attend one of our nation’s top universities, a local community college, or a career training program, Ready Now Yuma provides them with a solid academic foundation that opens the door to opportunity, and closes the door to none, upon graduation.
