Joining the SkoolLive Nationwide Network are the Raiders of Cibola High School. Cibola is one of the largest schools in the Yuma Union High School District and is accredited by Advanced Ed. The school opened in 1988 with 1000 ninth and tenth graders. Today about 2,600 students attend Cibola. The school derived its name from a legend in Spanish history about great and limitless riches in the “Seven Cities of Gold”. Students selected “Raiders” as their school mascot and “Commitment to Excellence” as their school mission statement.
Cibola High School’s academics rank highly and in 1996, Cibola High School was honored as one of three A+ secondary schools for the State of Arizona. Over 75% of students who graduate from Cibola High School will go onto some other form of secondary education.
