Established in 1957, Carl Hayden Community High School is preparing all students to become lifelong learners and to meet the challenges of a technological society. We are home to one of Phoenix Union's oldest and largest Magnet programs, the Centers for Computer Studies and Marine Science. Hayden offers opportunities for students to be involved in Honors, AP and dual enrollment courses where students can earn community college credit while in high school. 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.

A brand new Phoenix Union Handbook for Students and Families will be approved and in use for the 2019-20 school year. This colorful, informative book is not just discipline procedures and policy. It introduces parents to programs and services, such as ELL, ESS, Food and Nutrition, Student and Family Services, School Safety, and Transportation. It also presents a District-wide dress code, attendance policy, student expectations, and restorative practices at school and at home.
The Handbook Committee invites our stakeholders- staff, students, parents, and community to three forums, Monday, April 29 at three regional locations-Central, Alhambra and Betty Fairfax from 5:30 to 7 p.m. to share the changes and gather input.
