Phoenix Union High School District Opens Two New Schools

Posted by Communications on 8/11/2016

The 2015-16 School year began, August 8 with the opening of two new schools to the 17-school Phoenix Union High School District. The Phoenix Coding Academy opened its doors to the first freshman class. The Linda Abril Educational Academy had a ribbon-cutting, August 5, and welcomed students three days later. Formerly known as Suns-Diamondbacks Education Academy, it was renamed with the completion of the alternative school’s first permanent home, a 42,000 square-foot two-story school building at 3000 N. 19th Ave. It was named after Governing Board member Linda Abril, a longtime champion of small, alternative schools.
