The Whiteriver Unified School District is located on the most beautiful Reservation in Arizona, the White Mountain Apache Reservation. The Reservation is known for its beauty, from Sonoran Desert lowlands to its ponderosa pine and snowcapped peaks. The Reservation boasts many recreational activities such as hiking, camping, picnicking, boating, hunting, and fishing. The best skiing in the southwest is 45 minutes away at the Sunrise Ski Resort operated by the White Mountain Apache Tribe. The Tribe also runs the Hondah Casino 15 minutes from Whiteriver.
The people of the White Mountains enjoy all four seasons, including snow in the winter with moderate temperatures. Most of the year entails gorgeous blue skies.
Whether you live in Whiteriver in the school district's inexpensive teacher housing, or "up the hill" in the nearby towns of Pinetop/Lakeside or Show Low, you will always be surrounded by nature at its most beautiful. With the area's excellent real-estate market, you are sure to find a place to call home.
Show Low and Pinetop/Lakeside have a small-town atmosphere while still providing many amenities such as a variety of recreational opportunities, restaurants, shops, and stores, including Arizona's first Wal-Mart Super Center. The White Mountain area is only about four hours away from Phoenix, Arizona's largest city and state capital.
If you love small towns in the heart of nature and enjoy a variety of recreational activities, then the White Mountains were made for you.
