Fireside at Norterra, a master-planned community in North Phoenix, is in Arizona’s Deer Valley Unified School District (DVUSD). The primary high school serving Fireside students (grades 9-12) is Barry Goldwater High School. The main K-8 school for Fireside students is Norterra Canyon School.
Fireside residents can seek to enroll students in other DVUSD K-8 schools or high schools, thanks to Arizona’s open enrollment program, which allows students (or, more accurately, parents) to pick the school of their choice if capacity permits.
Parents willing to make a roughly 10- or 20-minute drive will find several options among state-overseen charter schools [full list] in North Phoenix:
- Adams Traditional Academy (K-8)
- Stepping Stones Academy (K-8)
- Ridgeline Academy (K-8)
- Jefferson Preparatory High School (7-12)
- Anthem Prep (K-12)
- Caurus Academy (K-8 now, adding high school in fall 2018).
Fireside is also about a 10-minute drive from North Valley Christian Academy (NVCA), a private preK-12 school.
