Welcome to eSchool
eSchool is the Deer Valley Unified School District's online education alternative
We offer over 110 fully accredited, rigorous online one-semester(.5 credit) courses for high school students taught by certified, highly qualified Deer Valley instructors.
One-semester courses are offered during 14-week fall and spring semesters, and an 8-week summer semester.
eSchool's online course delivery system, Blackboard, is the industry leader and is utilized by Universities, K-12 districts, and corporations world-wide. Students enrolled in eSchool become familiar with Blackboard's online learning management system, giving them a significant edge in college and career readiness over their traditionally-educated peers.
Most eSchool classes have online textbooks. However, if you are taking Accounting, Algebra 3&4 Honors, Business Operations 1&2, Trigonometry, Information Technology, Law and Society, Marketing, Media Productions 2, Painting, Psychology, or World History Honors, you will need to obtain a hard copy of the textbook. Textbooks will be available during business hours at the Deer Valley Unified District Offices, 20402 N. 15th Ave, Phoenix, 85027. Textbooks are free, but require a deposit that will be refunded when the textbook is returned. Deposits can be made with cash or check.
eSchool Students must have high-speed internet access and Microsoft Office.
