Art Festival 2016
Williams Field High School extends a warm welcome to all Higley Unified students and families as we celebrate our 3rd annual Arts Festival February 9th and 10th from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.. This two night event showcases all performing and visual arts programs on our Black Hawk campus with free admission. Come hear musical performances by the band, orchestra, and choirs while also watching live art demonstrations. Laugh with our Thespians during their improvisational performance courtesy of the WFHS Off The Tracks group and see professionally choreographed dances by our Elations Dance Company. Should you chose to financially support the campus, you may do so by purchasing one of a kind art displays and photos created by our very own Black Hawks. We will also have local food truck vendors available in the event you want to take a night off preparing a dinner!
Come join us in the courtyard as we celebrate the arts!

AZ Merit Update
In Spring 2015, Higley Unified School District and schools across Arizona administered the first AzMERIT assessments. These assessments were designed to cover language arts and math.
Over the next few months, districts, schools and parents will receive results. Several different reports are available to help families understand the results. The district has put together an AzMERIT Parent Resource page to provide additional information.
