Anthem School, the first one built in town, is one of four DVUSD K-8 schools located in Anthem. It serves residents of the central part of town, including The Landing and parts of Country Club and Parkside.

Anthem, AZ is in Arizona’s Deer Valley Unified School District (DVUSD) and has several public school options, including charter schools. Click any school for detailed information, including boundary maps. See also our comparative guides to school performance and enrollment.

High School

The primary public high school for grades 9-12 is Boulder Creek High School. Some residents choose to send their students roughly 15 miles down I-17 to Barry Goldwater, another DVUSD school, especially for its renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) program.

K-8 Schools

There are five main K-8 public school serving Anthem students (four in town and one in New River).

(Note: Anthem students in Arroyo Grande, the separate section of town west of New River Wash, attend New River Elementary School for K-6, then go to Gavilan Peak School for grades 7 and 8.)m

Charter and Private Schools

Anthem residents can also consider several nearby charter schools [full list]. Arizona charters are public school operating independently from the local school district but under requirements set by the State Board of Education (learn more). The closest charter schools:

Also, Anthem is a short drive to North Valley Christian Academy (NVCA), a private preK-12 school.

Open Enrollment

Arizona’s open enrollment program requires all public schools to allow students to pick the school of their choice if capacity permits. Under this program, some Anthem students attend K-8 schools outside their designated boundaries — either to partake in another school’s area of specialty or to prevent changing schools after moving from one part of town to another.

The deadline to get priority consideration in open enrollment is in December prior to the following fall’s start of school, but open enrollment can be attempted at any time. There may be limitations on athletics eligibility. Click here for other rules and conditions, plus a list of schools that are available or limited.
