About Buckeye Union High School District
Welcome to Buckeye Union High School District.
Buckeye Union High School District (BUHSD) currently serves about 5,300 students in grades 9-12 from a 1200 square mile area about 35 miles west of downtown Phoenix. The district boundaries include the rapidly growing cities of Buckeye and Goodyear. The area has a rich agricultural tradition mixed with modern suburbia. Buckeye Union High School, located in the heart of Buckeye, graduated two students in the Class of 1921. Eighty years later, in August of 2001, Estrella Foothills High School opened its doors as the 2nd school in the district. That was quickly followed by the opening of Youngker High School in 2007, the district’s 3rd comprehensive high school, and the BUHSD Learning Center in 2011. The elementary districts that feed into BUHSD are Arlington, Buckeye, Liberty, and Palo Verde.
At BUHSD we are committed to success for all students through building relationships, establishing relevance, and increasing rigor. It is our goal to develop students who have the ability to think critically, apply knowledge at high levels, and use technology to access, evaluate, and communicate information. Both rigorous academic standards and 21st-century skills are a bridge to authentic, intellectually challenging work by students. We deliver our mission through a strong academic program, a wide range of co-curricular offerings, and a commitment to provide excellence tailored to the individual needs of every student.
Thank you for choosing Buckeye Union High School District. We are excited to play an important part in increasing educational opportunities and outcomes for all students, and helping them to become college, career, and workforce ready.
