Scholarship and success

Three boys in cap and gown pose on graduation day.We are a free, public charter K-8 school with a family-like feel, and our staff members have worked together for many years. We frequently host parent and family events, and pride ourselves on creating a caring, supportive environment that also asks the best from our students.

Our educational philosophy and approach to learning
SSA Peoria is focused on STEM education -- science, engineering, technology and math -- and college prep, with instruction in writing and the arts, and opportunities for healthy physical activity. We offer a learner-centered education with an emphasis on outcomes, visual aids, and technology-integrated education.

We participate in statewide and national math Olympiads and competitions, and emphasize skill-level education with individualized instruction. We provide a rigorous, college prep, STEM-focused education. We emphasize a scientific approach, hands-on work, computer literacy and the ability of students to use data and articulate a thesis.

All the teachers I've encountered are very good at what they do. I have 2 children at the school and have been attending SSA-Peoria for two years. In our experience, the teachers are excellent. 

The administrators, teachers, and staff encourage students to treat each other with respect and kindness.

At this school all students learn at their level. My daughter is in 4th grade, but goes to 6th grade for math. They never put a limit on what a student can achieve.

 The vision of Sonoran Schools is to be America's premier STEM school organization, graduating future leaders and world-caliber talent.

The mission of Sonoran Schools is to provide a rigorous, college prep, STEM-focused education through a challenging,comprehensive curriculum, continuous assessment, and dedicated teachers, inspiring students to become the leaders of tomorrow.
