Welcome to Hyder School District, the governing body of Dateland Elementary School. We are located in Dateland, Arizona, a small community of 400 people in Yuma County on I-8. Sunshine is abundant and our community’s history is unique since our town was once a railroad water stop in the early 1920s and a military training camp during the 1940s. We are proud to educate the children in our community and hope you’ll take the time to become familiar with what our school district has to offer.

As Hyder School District merges with technology, we are now able to provide you with important calendar events, administration, and elementary school staff information at your fingertips. We have much more for you to learn about us. Of course, just let us know how we can make your child’s education even better than what we currently strive for.
