SSA East is a K-8 school

We are a free, public charter K-8 school with a small-school atmosphere and we frequently hold family events. We pride ourselves on creating a caring, supportive environment that also asks the best from our students.

Children engaged in art making activitiesOur educational philosophy
SSA East is an A-rated school, 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, science, and art 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.

What our parents say about us online

Middle school student with a science experimentMy students are working above their grade level because of the rigorous academics and because the teachers works diligently to relay content in many forms.  

"My daughter loves her teacher and even wants to be a teacher when she grows up. Her teachers have done a great job and she has learned a lot since she started here. I really appreciate the teacher's efforts to help each student.

The teaching staff is caring, considerate, and encouraging to the children. The educational aspects are outstanding and well ahead of the standard curriculum taught in the other schools around the Tucson area.
