And because we know that you still want to know what's going on so that you can support your teenager and his/her school, we will be sure to post the most current news on this page. So whether it be kudos and awards or upcoming events, you will be well-informed and able to give your child what he/she needs most – your interest and your time. Thank you for your support!

A/V Class Gains National Recognition
The Queen Creek High School A/V class has been nationally recognized for its video about community service at our school. The video was selected as a second runner up for the Rihanna "Shine Like A Diamond" contest. This was a contest set up by Rihanna and her management team to highlight community service taking place at high schools around the country. The video entry was created by tenth grader, Daniel Madrigal. It beat out videos from Knocksville, TN, New York City, and many others.
For a contest of this magnitude, being recognized in the top three is something really awesome for the school and the entire community. He, along with our A/V program, will receive signed posters from Rihanna as prizes.
