Within Reach of Your Home or Work

At Phoenix #1, we are delivering a 1st Class Education Within Reach.  Its free, public education right in the heart of Phoenix, and we make it easy for you with 1st Class Customer Service.  We cover a sixteen square mile area with thirteen K-8 schools and an early childhood learning center for preschoolers. Our schools cover an area from 16th Street on the east, south of Buckeye Road on the south, past 23rd Avenue on the west and toward Thomas Road on the north.  Many of our schools are right on the major freeways and interstates for those commuting into Phoenix, and some of our schools are accessible by Light Rail.  You can bring your children to our schools and drive in the HOV lane, take advantage of our free school buses for transportation within our district boundaries or enjoy an easy walk since every school is nicely situated in a residential area.

1st Class for Every Child

Our 1st Class Education focuses on breaking down the barriers for every child to succeed as we integrate the arts, music, sports, physical education, gifted education, and special education, expanding horizons and promoting creativity for every child.

Full-Service Education

Unlike one-off schools, because we are a school district we offer a breadth of student services including speech and language therapy, social and psychological services, services for the hearing and visually impaired, as well as full programs for gifted and special education.  Each of our schools has a nurse or nurse’s assistant on staff. Students of working parents also enjoy free before and after school care to ensure a safe environment while their parents are at work.
