About Lake Havasu Unified School District


Lake Havasu City is a community inspired by possibility and rich with promise. Our young city responds to a common purpose: To build a future dependent on our single most precious resource, our youth.

Our Guiding Principles express that LHUSD will engage each student with a focus on scholarship, character, and humanity – so that all students may graduate with the academic and social skills necessary to become responsible citizens and contributing members of society.

The success of our children is the base upon which our future rests.

While the State of Arizona classifies LHUSD as a "medium-large" school district, we pride ourselves on our small-town characteristics. Each of our elementary schools is neighborhood-centered and emphasizes collaboration and community among parents, students, and staff. Our middle school is a “Capturing Kids’ Hearts”, nationally recognized school where a culture of caring is woven into the fabric of each school day. https://vimeo.com/113770417

Lastly, our high school brings a little Americana to Lake Havasu City on Friday nights as the community packs the stands in support of the Fighting Knights football team.
