Gilbert Campus

We are the only A+ Excelling Charter School for the last 15 continuous years . Gilbert EDUPRIZE has been a cornerstone of educational pioneering since it opened in July of 1995.

EDUPRIZE is located at Stapley and Baseline roads, with easy access to U.S. 60. EDUPRIZE has been a part of the Gilbert community for almost 30 years. Our campus is located on over 17 acres and is complete with a theater in the round, gymnasiums, multiple technology and science labs, and beautiful playground facilities. State championship competitive sports, clubs, and a large variety of music and arts programs are offered throughout the year. Our competitive teams have taken divisional and state championships in multiple sports. Our program not only offers children a superior K-12 experience, but it also motivates students to be global citizens through International Baccalaureate participation and becoming an IB Diploma Candidate.  In these programs, students become bilingual, experts in core curriculum and prepare to become future world leaders.

The EDUPRIZE  rigorous science-based program, allows students to apply the basics to our motivational science curriculum with applications through hands-on learning.

Students at EDUPRIZE don’t just learn, they create!

TOPS stands for Technology Optimized Program & Schedules. This is an amazing option for busy parents and students who have music, sports and family-filled days. Our AM TOPS program begins early and students are home for lunch daily. This has been a choice for so many families with food allergies and has allowed students to complete homework and other activities and still be home for dinners and family time each evening. PM TOPS is perfect for families who work late and need more time In the morning to get to school. This also provides quality morning, study, reading and homework time before school daily. With the 3:40 PM release time students are able to participate in afterschool sports and other activities.

Robin Yeargain

Greetings and welcome to EDUPRIZE, an amazing, A+ school with an incredible staff that has a heart for all children. My name is Robin Yeargain and I am so blessed to lead this community as the Elementary Principal. This is my 31st year in education, with 24 years in the classroom and 7 years in administration. I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Bilingual Education and then earned my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University. I taught 15 years in Scottsdale at Hohokam Elementary as a K-6 ESL teacher, and then I moved to EDUPRIZE for 9 years teaching third and fourth grade students. I was Dean of Students for three years and I am happy to start my 4th year as Principal. Making connections with people is my passion! I love to foster learning, whether it is in reading, writing, demonstrating strong character or growing to be a better person. My heart is with and for the kids, always! I truly love every aspect of EDUPRIZE, from the campus to the amazing teachers to the conscientious leaders and of course, to the most incredible families ever! I am thankful to be a part of EDUPRIZE and I look forward to another successful year of academic and personal growth for all!

I want to extend to you and your family a very warm welcome to EDUPRIZE High School. The middle and high school years are an exciting time when children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. Each year will provide important transitions and the acquisition of new skills that will enhance each student’s ability to apply learning in many ways. EDUPRIZE High School is committed to providing a challenging and rigorous curriculum that helps each student prepare for their postsecondary plans. I have been in education for 19 years. I hold a BA from Arizona State University in Chemistry Education, and a Master’s in Educational Leadership with an emphasis in K-12 principal certification. I have several years of experience serving on school leadership teams including School Improvement, Staff Development and as Department Chair. I love the process of both teaching and learning!
