How You Can Help

  • Ready Now Yuma is about transforming the way our teachers teach and our students learn. It’s about providing our students with the challenge and support they need to excel in our high schools and ultimately graduate prepared to succeed in college and career.

    By providing a rigorous, high expectations program of study within a college-going environment for all students, we are raising expectations and the academic bar across our district. As members of the community, here are ways you can help the Ready Now Yuma initiative and our students succeed.

    • Champion High Expectations - Studies show that students are more likely to succeed academically when their homes, schools, and communities have the highest expectations for them. Students also find role models and advisors in a wide array of adults including parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, coaches, and friends of the family, so be that supportive voice that encourages them to challenge themselves, work hard in school, and go on to postsecondary education.
    • See the Difference. Take A Tour - The best way to understand how Ready Now Yuma makes our students' learning experience different is to see our classrooms and talk to our teachers and students. YUHSD offers regular tours on five of our high school campuses. We invite you to sign up today to take a tour.
    • Spread the Word - Share your support and enthusiasm about Ready Now Yuma and how it is preparing YUHSD students for success in college and career with your friends, family, and neighbors. The more support we have for challenging and preparing our students to succeed, the more our community will benefit from our skilled and talented graduates.
