Our Vision
Cedar Hills School is a small K-8 school located in Kingman, AZ.

-A strong set of moral values such as honesty, integrity, responsibility, and good judgment.
-A complete set of skills in the areas of linguistics, mathematics, science, art, physical fitness, and social skills.
-An inquiring and open 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 society. 

We value the importance of the partnership between the school, our families, and the community, and we recognize its crucial role in making this vision a reality.

Our History

The Hackberry School District was founded in the late 1800's.  The District had two school sites in the 1990's: one found in the small town of Hackberry, and the other at our current site located 20 miles outside of Kingman, Arizona.  The original school building in Hackberry was flooed and then closed.  The District programs were relocated to the newer site, and Cedar Hills School was rebuilt and officially reopened in 2000.
