Poston Butte High School is a high school in San Tan Valley, Arizona in the Florence Unified School District. It opened July 20, 2009.

One-to-one computing[edit]

Poston Butte High School does not employ textbooks. Instead, the school's one-to-one computing policy provides a laptop to each student in lieu of textbooks.[2]

The first school to use one-to-one computing in Arizona was Empire High School, which started doing so in 2005. Florence district officials worked with Empire to implement a similar program at Poston Butte in 2009.[3] After successful implementation at Poston Butte, it was expanded to Florence High School in 2010.[4]

First graduating class[edit]

The first class graduated from Poston Butte on May 30, 2012.[5] It had 253 students.
