Our School

Our new, state-of-the-art facility is located just southeast of beautiful, sunny Yuma, Arizona. Our community is like family with a small town and friendly vibe. We are excited to offer innovative educational opportunities to the students in our district. We are Dorothy Hall Elementary and we are Innovators!

We Are a Kids at Hope School

Dorothy Hall Elementary subscribes to the “Kids at Hope” theology. The Kids at Hope program began in 1993 to help erase the stigma of the term “youth at risk.” This program was created and designed by educators and law enforcement officials as well as recreation and youth development leaders to change the negative model of “at risk” to one of positivity and hope.


“Kids at Hope inspires, empowers, and transforms schools, organizations serving youth, and entire communities to create an environment and culture where all children experience success—NO EXCEPTIONS!”


“Kids at Hope’s vision is that every child is afforded the belief, guidance and encouragement that creates a sense of hope and optimism, supported by a course of action needed to experience success at life’s four major destinations: Home & Family; Education & Career; Community & Service; and Hobbies & Recreation.” 

Kids at Hope has successfully helped students become more optimistic and hopeful through its Three Universal Truths: belief in success, connection with caring adults, and “time travel,” which encourages children to look multi-dimensionally into their future.

We are excited to have this program for the students of Dorothy Hall Elementary. Please contact us with any questions.

Additional Programs

At Dorothy Hall, we find innovative ways every year to enhance our students’ learning experience. Students may work with a new computer-based program to improve their reading and math skills one day and be outside learning about nature the next. View these pages to learn about the diverse ways our students learn.
