Higley was an unincorporated community in Maricopa County, Arizona, United States. Higley's ZIP code was 85236 until 2007, when the U.S. Postal Service decided to abolish it for physical addresses,[1] the 85236 ZIP code however remains in use for P.O. Box addresses at the Higley post office located on Ray Road. As of 2010, almost all of Higley has been annexed into Gilbert or the neighboring cities of Mesa and Queen Creek. All that remains of Higley as an independent community is the school district, Higley Unified School District.
