Open Quote 2016-2017 District Administration was found to be in violation by the United States Department of Civil Rights for retaliation of a students disability. The Arizona board of Education found them to be in non compliance and they many violations including teachers that were not certified through the Arizona board. Students Math and English proficiency scores are low and under average. Check out their history of poor and negative reviews regarding administration and teacher turnover before enrolling your children. Close Quote

Open Quote This is my son's second year at Pinnacle Pointe and I have yet to encounter any problems. My child did not attend pre-school so I was slightly concerned as to how he would "catch up." He now is a fluid reader and writer and his math comprehension is great! He has had highly qualified teachers and it shows.

I teach in the public school system and I would say that the education that my son is receiving at Pinnacle Pointe is comparable, if not better.

My only concern would be the turnover, however, I can say first hand that this happens in public, non-charter schools as well. Teacher and student turn-over is unfortunately common in Arizona.

Overall, this has been a positive place for my son to be. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
