The schools rating is now an "A" and the principal is up for a major award. My kids teachers have all been friendly and helpful and anytime I have had a concern or question the office staff and teachers have been there to help. They have a great Title 1 program with one of the best teachers I have ever meet (Mrs. Bolton). Also the front office staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.

What Can I Do For Fun In The East Valley?
It doesn’t matter if you’re thinking about moving to the East Valley from another part of Arizona or you’re coming from out of state.  It helps to scout ahead and get the lay of the land, to see what Arizona and more specifically the East Valley has to offer.  What can you do that’s new, educational of just plain fun?  Here is just the tip of the ice-burg,  a small sampling of the hundreds and hundreds of wonderful things to do in the East Valley.  Eat some dirt on a sunny Saturday morning with Arizona ATV Adventures.  Arizona ATV Adventures has been in the fun business for 30 years and counting.  The trails are 40 miles long with points of interest on both sides.  The main feature is Box Canyon through which the trail runs for 6 miles.  The walls are about 20 feet apart and 900 feet high.  Horseback riding is splendid during our Arizona Spring time with many native plants in bloom.  At the MD Ranch visitors can go on a horseback riding adventure through the surrounding mountains and desert trails.  Guides teach beginner riders the basics before setting out.  You owe it to yourself to explore the Tonto National Park which encompasses nearly three million acres!  This pristine destination offers Ponderosa Pines, several lakes, 8 wilderness areas, hiking and biking trails, water access for swimming, fishing and boating and of course campsites and picnic areas.   

Is golfing your favorite thing to do, then you are sure to love all the many scenic golf courses that dot the East Valley, especially the Johnson Ranch 18-Hold Public Course.  The Harkins 16 Theatre in San Tan Valley sure makes it easy to catch a flick whenever the fancy strikes.  If you have a dog then you’ll be happy to know that there are 2 exciting choices in and around the San Tan Valley for exciting pooch fun.  The first is a 1-acre canine recreation facility called Pocket Park For Pups and it offers separate grass fields for small and large dogs.  The park also provides drinking fountains, benches and shaded areas and waste bags for clean-up!  The 2nd choice is Cosmo Dog Park and it has an obstacle course and a pond for pets to swim and play in.  There is also a fenced area where dogs can play together.


How would you like to pick organic fruits and vegetables from Schneph’s Farms or enjoy the annual Peach Festival?  There is a wonderful Breakfast Restaurant here with very good food and an old fashioned store and bakery. They even have ice-skating in the winter!  Do you have kids that are into baseball?  They are sure to like the Az Grip-N-Rip Batting Cages and pitching mounds and pitching machines.  They offer individual and group instruction, camps and clinics.  It does get really hot in Arizona during the summer wouldn’t it be nice to have an indoor sports center?  Well, check out the indoor Barney Sports Center where soccer, volleyball, hockey, archery, karate, boot camps and hula are all offered.  Take a day and explore the Goldfield Ghost Town and nearby Superstition Zip-line, both are a hoot!  Cool yourself off as you go Salt Water Tubing or explore the Phoenix Zoo.  Take a tour of the Olive Mill Farm and stay for lunch, treat yourself to a custom blended bottle of olive oil.  The San Tan Mountain Regional Park covers over 10,000 acres with hiking and biking trails and native wildlife.  If bowling, bumper cars, arcade games or billiard tables are more your style, then Brunswick Zone XL will sure to please you and your crew.  These are just a few of the many fun and wonderful activities in  East Valley, Arizona.
