Learning About Our District

The surrounding area of Picacho and the community of Red Rock began in 1881. It was in this area that the only Civil War battle fought in Arizona took place. A troop of Union California volunteers came upon a troop of Texas Confederate soldiers on guard duty at Picacho Pass. After exchanging fire, the Union troop withdrew, scoring a small battle victory for the Confederates.

Our community sits at 3,382 feet elevation, making us an arid low desert region. Our annual average temperatures range from a 52-degree low to an 85-degree high. While our area only receives an average of less than 10 inches of rain annually, it is still resplendent with desert flora and fauna.

Today, Red Rock remains an unincorporated town. There are approximately 350 members living in our small-town community, and it is growing every day. We pride ourselves on our hometown feel, where neighbors can rely on each other and children can live and play in safety. Our school reflects these attitudes also. We not only educate over 100 students; we know and value them as well.

In recent years, our district has been experiencing a surge in growth due to the numbers of new families moving into our area. In response to this growth, we have opened many new school buildings. As each new phase of construction is completed, we utilize our new areas. While change is always difficult, our community of Red Rock continues to shine as an example of support and understanding; another reason the town of Red Rock is so great.
