Education is a catalyst for opportunity, and in Maricopa it’s also paving the way for economic development. The city’s newest campus, Desert Sunrise High School, opens in July and begins to welcome the first wave of students!
The 165,000-square-foot campus includes cutting-edge design, innovative technologies and flexible classroom spaces and furnishings. Career academies and college preparatory courses also set the curriculum at Desert Sunrise apart, preparing students there to meet economic needs of the future.
“We are growing, and being able to relieve the overcrowding at Maricopa High School and expand on the great programming that we already have for 9th -12th graders is really exhilarating.” — Dr. Tracy Lopeman, Superintendent at Maricopa Unified School District
The addition of this campus also signifies a landmark moment for the growth of the city as a whole. The east side of Maricopa is expanding quickly, with thousands of new homes either under construction or just around the corner. The high school and the businesses that follow will support this growth and help alleviate congestion on the west side of the city.
“If folks in Maricopa haven’t been out here, it won’t be long before they have a reason to be! This will be a very vibrant locale in the City of Maricopa, and we’re very excited to be in on the ground floor.”
— Dr. Tracy Lopeman
