Peralta School Named an A+ School
Congratulations to Peralta Elementary School for being named an A+ school by the Arizona Educational Foundation. On Thursday, May 16th, Peralta held a celebration for staff, students and their families.
To receive A+ distinction, schools must submit a written application that requires many hours to complete. The application requires schools to show proof of parent and community involvement, a description of the current programs and practices, demographic information, along with the principal’s vision and commitment to excellence. Winning schools must demonstrate sustained high achievement or significant improvement. Those schools chosen for A+ distinction are recognized for their superior ability to meet the needs of their student populations. Schools designated as A+ retain their status for three years and then they may reapply for the A+ award.
Congratulations to the students, staff and families of Peralta School for being named an A+ school!

The latest recipients of the Superintendent’s Award of Excellence are our 8th grade students from Atkinson, Borman, Cartwright, Castro, Downs, Desert Sands, Estrella and Castro enrolled in the Zero Hour program. We currently have 130 8th grade students enrolled in high school in the Zero Hour class of Algebra I. These students attend class at Maryvale or Trevor Browne High schools and are earning a high school credit in math and advancing their math skills. Students who are part of the class at Maryvale attend class from
6:40 -7:35 AM Monday through Friday. Those attending class at Trevor Browne attend from 7:00-7:55 AM Monday-Friday. In order for our students to participate, buses begin picking up students at 6:00 AM. After attending their morning class at high school, our students are taken to their home school where they attend their regular classes. These students are to be commended for their hard work, their time, and their commitment to improving their skills in math. They have demonstrated tremendous responsibility by making sure they are in their class on time every day.
