We are a proud team of educators who remain excited to share the school year with you. The school is named after Mrs. Maie Bartlett Heard. Maie was involved in the development of early Phoenix. Her love of books led her to jump on her horse and deliver library books to far-off ranch children and to work with fellow members of the Phoenix Women’s Club to build the city’s first library, the Carnegie, in 1908.
