Key Steps for Elementary School Selection

Figuring out where to send your child for elementary school can be exciting and overwhelming. Here’s a top three list of ‘must-considers’ when choosing your young student’s elementary school:

Size Matters

Smaller classes mean more individualized attention. At Academy of Tucson public charter school, our 15:1 student-to-teacher ratio ensures every child is seen and heard. Every one of our certified elementary teachers cares deeply about enriching your child’s life, creating a lifetime love of learning. And with smaller classes, our teachers can more easily innovate and adapt to meet your student where they are. 


Active Students are Happy Students

Elementary students thrive when engaged. That’s why our Academy of Tucson days are filled with activities. On any given day you might find our elementary students in art classes, PE, creating 3D sculptures or learning from community visitors like the Tucson Water Board. Our students go on field trips (Grand Canyon!), attend carnivals and Science Fairs, learn to type and use Chrome Books, and show their stuff at Spelling Bees. Got a budding athlete, musician, scientist, or artist? We have clubs and extracurriculars for that, too! 

Safety and Security are Always Top of Mind

Because we are a smaller school, we truly know every student. Not only will your child be seen and heard in their classroom, your student will be recognized and cared for by every member of our staff and our close-knit community of families who volunteer. Don’t just take our word for it. Come see for yourself at an Open House.
