Community/Other Information Kingman Unified School District serves approximately 7,300 PreK-12th grade students and families across 12 campuses, offering online and in-person educational opportunities. What makes KUSD unique? The District is invested in supporting students in finding the pathway that is unique to them, whether it is a more traditional educational path with an eye toward college, or a pathway that focuses on the trades and leaving school career-ready. The town of Kingman, Arizona is located in northwestern Arizona in the Hualapai Valley between the Cerbat and Hualapai Mountain ranges. Kingman is known as “The Heart of Historic Route 66” and is ideally situated between Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, the Grand Canyon, and Lake Havasu City. For those who enjoy a smaller community, but like a big city nearby, Las Vegas is approximately an hour and a half northwest of Kingman which is great for day or weekend trips! For those who love fishing or water activities, Bullhead City is a short 30 minute drive and located on the Colorado River. If you like nature, you have the opportunity to enjoy the spring flowers just outside Oatman, AZ approximately 30 minutes west of Kingman and also get to experience forestry and wildlife year-round - including snow in the winter - just 20 minutes away in the Hualapai Mountains. Also, Lake Havasu City, AZ is only one hour away from Kingman and is a hot spot for tourism and a popular location during Spring Break.
