Founded in 1946 by Hamilton "Ham" and Barbara "Babs" Warren, Verde Valley School opened in 1948 with sixteen students and a handful of teachers and artists. The Warren family was motivated to create a space where people of different cultures and backgrounds could come together to learn. In the post World War 2 era where many nations were divided, Verde Valley School served as a sanctuary where young people could come together and build bridges between different cultures.
