We encourage students to build their academic skills through a wide variety of programs, clubs and activities, including  an AVID mentoring program, advanced classes in all academic areas and internationally renowned Robotics, Wrestling and JROTC Rifle clubs. Our programs are designed to meet the needs of all students so they can be successful in an ever changing society. No matter how diverse the students’ needs are; programs are designed with student learning as the focus.  In short, Carl Hayden Community High School provides a quality and appropriate education for all students.
