Our School

At GIFT, our students are our number one priority. We provide learning opportunities in academics, careers, and life skills that lead students to productive citizenship. We are also proud to sponsor CTE (career and technical education) organizations that help our students develop leadership, advance their chosen careers, and continue their education after GIFT.

Opportunities for Learning

Students who enroll in our CTE program may attend either our central campus in Thatcher or via participating satellite locations throughout Greenlee and Graham counties. We currently offer learning and certification opportunities in the following programs and many more.
