    We service students in grades PreK-5 in the Ahwatukee Foothills Community. Since 1994, we have continually strived to be one of the premier schools in the Kyrene School District. Our administration, faculty, students and parents are second to none. Our school has a wonderful "school climate" that is very conducive to learning.
    All K-5 students will lead their own learning through ongoing progress checks, data notebooks, and developing effective habits in their lives to positively impact learning. 
    To schedule a school tour, contact the office at 480-541-2200.
    Leaders of today Inspiring leaders of tomorrow.
