Why Phoenix

Relocate to Phoenix

Phoenix is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, and there's good reason why. With over 325 days of sunshine, breath-taking scenery, world-class restaurants, and a low cost of living, it's no wonder more and more people are coming to Phoenix.

Centrally Located

We're a short drive (or light rail ride) from many popular cities, including Scottsdale, Tempe and Mesa.

Restaurants & Entertainment

Home to renowned restaurants, museums, and four sport stadiums, there's always something fun to do.

Progressive Art District

Roosevelt row offers amazing galleries, year-round art and cultural festivals, and live music.

Prime Location for Traveling

Phoenix has often been referred to as the hub of the southwest because we're close to the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and California.

Living and Working in Phoenix

If you're interested in joining Phoenix Elementary District #1, you'll have the opportunity to live in a major metropolitan area-with close access to pristine, untouched nature. We love our central location, and the conveniences it provides. Take advantage of our new light rail system. Relax or recharge at one of our many beautiful parks. Or grab an artfully crafted cappuccino from local vendors across the city. Whatever your interests, Phoenix is an exciting place to live, work and play.
