God’s Garden Preschool has been part of the Ahwatukee community for a little over 14 years, offering its community a more “flexible” learning experience.

The school currently houses more than 145 students, with ages ranging from 2 to 5 years old, and nearly 20 instructors.

Director Beth Wilson said the school offers a “family atmosphere” for its parents and students, and allows flexibility when dealing with scheduling conflicts.

“It’s a flexible program. Every year we look at the demographics of what parents are looking for,” she said. “We offer a lot of different options from stay-and-play to enrichments. It’s very family orientated… you just walk in here and feel that.”

The school will be hosting its 14th annual Transportation Day on Saturday, Feb. 22 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., which centers as a community event for Ahwatukee and a fundraiser for the school.

Kyrene Akimel A-al Middle School, 2720 E. Liberty Lane, has been part of the Ahwatukee area since 1992, offering each of their Rattlers an enjoyable schooling experience from the morning bell to the ending bell.

According to its website, the name of the school is derived from the Akimel O’odham meaning, “Children of the River.”

The school houses just fewer than 1,100 students.

Principal Mike Deignan said the school offers different sport activities and a learning lab before school starts, which offers 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.
