The heart of Phoenix Advantage is our students and their academic, social and emotional needs. 

ACADEMICS:

  4. Great Kindergarten model for an strong school foundation
  5. Plentiful learning resources and opportunities for hands-on learning
  6. Three technology labs with rigorous and fun instructional programs
  7. Science Lab for experimentation in upper grades

SOCIAL SUPPORT:

  1. Extended recess time and structured play for exercise and mental acuity
  2. PACS Club every Friday for weekend food support
  3. Snacks provided through the Fresh, Fruit & Vegetable Program
  4. Small class sizes and smaller school environment – teachers and staff know the students
  5. Monthly awards assemblies celebrating academics, character & improvement.
  6. Telephone calls, notes home, emails, robo-calling to ensure parent communication and involvement
  7. Theater, Spanish and Physical Education Specials for all students
  8. Elective classes for older students in addition to the regular specials so they can develop their interests for high school

  3. Operation Santa – every child in Kinder-3rd Grade receives a gift during the Holiday Season
  4. Food boxes provided for most of the needy families in the school all year long.
  5. Quarterly barbecues provide a time to parents to eat a barbecue lunch with their children. We all eat outside together in a festival atmosphere with picnic tables and music for an atmosphere of community sharing.
  6. Trunk or Treat each October to provide community support & a safe Trick or Treating Event for all families in the area.
