Chandler, Arizona - Home to Arizona Classic Jazz Festival

Dr. Alexander John first founded Chandler’s townsite in 1912 and just a few months later, the very first Chandler High School was established. As Phoenix grew rapidly during the turn of the 20th century, so too did chandler, which quickly led to Arizona’s first golf-resort, the Hotel San Marcos, being constructed to meet the growing demand in tourism.

As was most of the country, Chandler’s agricultural and farming community was hit hard by the 1929 stock market crash, and it wasn’t until the 1940s, with the construction of Williams Air Force Base, that the city began show some revitalization. By 1950, the city’s population was lingering at around 3,800; however, by 1980, the population had jumped to an impressive 30,000-plus people.

As many major computer-related firms, such as Intel, Motorola, and Microchip, made their way into Chandler during the 1990s, so too did an abundance of good-paying jobs. Because Chandler is land-locked by neighboring cities, the city’s growth at some point will be limited. Contact us today for martial arts lessons in Chandler.

It’s a spendy activity, but worth it. I’m not sure how it ranks against other schools, but I’m willing to pay extra for the level of engagement and interaction that my kids get, and thrive on…
