Montessori Educare Academy

1244 E. Chandler Blvd.

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.

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle school Principal Mike Deignan poses with students in front of the school sign that is advertising their "A" rating.

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School has been part of the Ahwatukee area since 1992, offering each of its Rattlers an enjoyable schooling experience from the morning bell to the ending bell.

According to its website, the name of the school is from the Akimel O’odham language and it means, “Children of the River.”

Principal Mike Deignan said the school offers sport activities and a learning lab before school starts, which provides students time before school to seek extra help with work completion or tutoring.

“That keeps our students involved with a lot of things, between the sports and the learning lab,” Deignan said.
