Dr. Elba Iris Reyes, principal at Ambassador Academy, poses with her students at Ambassador Academy Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2014.
For the past five years, Ambassador Academy in Ahwatukee has been offering its students a small-classroom setting.
Each class has no more than 15 students, which Dr. Elba Iris Reyes, Ambassador Academy’s principal, said is what sets it apart from other charter schools.
The school’s current enrollment stands at 47 students from kindergarten through fifth grade.
“We have academic excellence in teaching and learning, we have high expectations for our teachers and their practices, and we have high expectations for our students,” Reyes said. “We also focus on leadership and character development.”
Ambassador Academy’s Parent Teacher Organization is devising fundraising opportunities to raise money for the school’s playground facility.
