Queen Creek Campus

We are the only A+ Excelling Charter School in Pinal county.

Our EDUPRIZE Queen Creek campus is located in the beautiful San Tan Mountains just off Hunt Highway and Thompson Rd. Our 10 acre facility houses two gymnasiums, media center, band and music rooms, multiple science laboratories, and six technology labs. Children in grades K-8 are offered our award winning science-based curriculum, which requires students to not just learn basic skills in isolation, but to apply them to real-world content. Parents drive up to 30 miles each day to bring their children to this extraordinary school of choice.

EDUPRIZE Queen Creek is one of a few “A” rated schools and the only A+ rated charter school in Pinal County. EDUPRIZE Gilbert is the only 5 time A+ rated charter school in all of Maricopa County and these two amazing campuses are unparalleled in the state. No schools have the growth scores that our students have – year after year.  We invite you to learn more about our extraordinary method and programs and  why we are called, “The Disneyland of Education.”

Program flexibility to meet your needs

Our full school day option (K-8) offers a well-balanced daily schedule that begins at approximately 8:00 AM and ends between 2:30 – 3:15 PM depending on the grade level.  Our approach includes our extraordinary core curriculum combined with a weekly rotation where students experience a variety of elective classes taught by our highly effective specialist team. The program also includes a lunch period and recess/brain breaks to provide our students with continuous opportunities to build essential social-emotional skills throughout their day.

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.

This will be my eighth year as the principal of EDUPRIZE and I have never been so excited. I have been in public education for 20 years. Eight years were as a special education teacher and this will be my twelfth year as a school administrator. We have an amazing thing going on here at EDUPRIZE and it is due to the amazing teachers, staff, and families that we have. Our focus and goal is to work collaboratively to ensure all students receive the support they need to grow.
