Montessori Educare Academy

Serving Ahwatukee Foothills for the past 12 years, Montessori Educare Academy aims to give young students a solid foundation for their academic careers.

Located on Chandler Boulevard near Desert Foothills Park, the academy currently has 96 students enrolled in four primary grades, for children ages 3 to 6, as well as toddler and pre-toddler classes.

Head of School Karen Hyatt said she hopes the academy inspires love and learning for every child.

“We just want to provide a caring environment,” Hyatt said.

The academy is now enrolling for its 2013 summer camp, where kids can engage in various programs and activities.

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.
