Teach ‘N’ Fun Ahwatukee has been in the community for more than four years, offering a “family” atmosphere for all its students.

The original Teach ‘N’ Fun opened in the West Valley during the ‘80s, and the owners decided to expand the business to Ahwatukee.

Teach ‘N’ Fun currently houses nearly 100 students, ages 2 weeks to 11 years old.

Co-director, Kim Hale, says what makes the school unique from others is the emphasis on a family environment and the affordability.

The school charges $165 per week for full-time students, which hasn’t increased since the school opened.

“When we say that we are family owned and that we have that family atmosphere, the families definitely feel that. We know them personally, we know about their families, about their back stories, about their pets, and I think they value that personal attention,” Hale said.

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.
