Is the current school implementing my child’s most important needs as spelled out in his/her IEP/ILP?
Do the teachers and staff treat my child as a welcome member of the school community, or as a chore for them to address each day?
Is my child succeeding academically?
Are efforts being made to proactively address academic problems?
Does my child have friends? (Not just people who are polite, but people he/she spends time with outside of school?)
Am I able to be a strong educational advocate for my child, checking in frequently, assessing progress, and ensuring his/her needs are met? Does the school support my involvement?
Does my child enjoy going to school?
Now is the right time to plan ahead & research the options available to your student. A few things that make us different here at PS are:
We work closely with you to ensure your student's needs are being met.
We have a licensed SLP on campus who works closely with the teachers & students, helping bridge the gap between education & each individual's special needs.
Just as our students evolve & grow, so does our curriculum. We are always working to improve it, keeping the feedback loop open between teachers, staff, parents and students.
Students are also grouped based on their ability rather than age, creating an environment which encourages participation.
Our kids love going to school! They paricipate in all kinds of extracurricular activities, make friends, and socialize.
Students can choose from over 20 clubs & electives, including Girl Power, Culinary Club, Rock Band, Student Council, and many more!
Our staff is like one big family, and each new student that comes to PS is welcomed to be apart of it. A parent's testimonial:
"This is Jett's fourth year at PS Academy. He came to the school after experiencing years of bullying from students in his public school. Jett's self-esteem was low and he was not enjoying any part of his junior high school experience. Our family moved across the country so that Jett could attend PS Academy. The impact was immediate. His confidence grew and he is now thriving in school! He has been President of the Student Council, obtained his AZ Driver's License and has a job as a barista at a coffee house in Gilbert. I do not believe that any of this would have been possible if Jett had stayed in public school. PS Academy has been life changing for Jett!"
