Grayhawk Elementary is a Core Knowledge School

Through an exciting and enriching Core Knowledge curriculum, our students are truly challenged to grow academically and emotionally. We are not only a Core Knowledge school, but additionally we are one of only two schools in the state to be acknowledged as a National Visitation Site for the Core Knowledge Foundation.  This honor was bestowed on us in 2001 for our outstanding leadership in implementation of the Core Knowledge sequence.

In May of 2014, we were recognized as a Core Knowledge School of Distinction, the first in the State of Arizona.  We differentiate instruction for our students with our Core Knowledge program that allows for an exciting, rigorous, and enriched curriculum that challenges our students.
