We have a small community school.
The Hackberry School was originally opened in the late 1800's. The school district had two school sites in the 1990's, one at Hackberrry, and one at the current site near I-40 exit 66, 20 miles out of Kingman Arizona. The original school at Hackberry was closed and then flooded. The district programs were all moved to the newer site and Cedar Hills School was opened in 2000.

Hackberry Elementary School District #3 will encourage all students to become life-long learners. All students are encouraged to achieve their personal best. The school community will provide a safe learning environment with highly qualified and supportive staff. We will work to develop a relationship among all stakeholders, (parents, extended family, staff, students, etc.) who are all working together to provide the student with a solid educational foundation. Students are expected to leave Hackberry Elementary School District #3 with:
-A set of moral values-honesty, integrity, and good judgment.
-A complete set of skills in the areas of-linguistics, mathematics, science, art, physical
fitness, and social skills.
-An inquiring and discriminating mind, critical thinking skills, and a desire for knowledge.
-A strong sense of self-esteem and high personal expectations.
-The ability to respect and appreciate others.
-The skills necessary to become productive citizens who actively contribute to
We value the partnership which must exist between the school, parents, and community and the part it plays in making this vision a reality.
