Agua Fria High School

Agua Fria High School improvements were made possible by successful ballot measures.

Agua Fria Union High School District will have a ribbon-cutting at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8, celebrating the Phase 1 improvements at Agua Fria High School, 530 E. Riley Drive, Avondale.

“With the completion of Phase 1 renovations at the Agua Fria campus, students and teachers have been provided state-of-the-art learning spaces for collaboration and instruction. New science labs were desperately needed due to the growing student population at our oldest campus,” said AFUHSD Superintendent Dr. Dennis Runyan.

“We are also encouraged by the community’s bond support in 2019, which will allow us to complete Phase 2 renovations in the near future. When this process is complete, the 60-year-old campus will be fully reimagined into a contemporary learning community.”

Since 1999, AFHS’s campus has become fragmented through multiple additions, remodels and renovations to accommodate increasing student enrollment.

Phase 1 improvements were funded by the voter-approved bond issue in Nov. 2015, while additional phases are part of the voter-approved 2019 bond.

“The entire Agua Fria community is excited to open our newly renovated classroom buildings to students and teachers. We are excited to begin the hard work of pursuing human potential in our state-of-the-art science labs. Our students, teachers, and community are grateful for the support of our voters who approved the bond election this November,” said Ernest Molina, principal of Agua Fria High School.
