About Pinnacle Peak

The PPPS family of learners collaborates within an engaging community that is passionate, purposeful, and productive.

Pinnacle Peak is the only K-8 school in the Paradise Valley Unified School District.  If students attend elementary school here, they can stay with us for 7th and 8th grade.  If students didn't attend elementary school at PPPS, they can still go to middle school here!  Visit our middle school website for more information about the PPPS middle school program:

PPPS Middle School Highlights

Open Enrollment

Continue your child's journey of excellence by open enrolling. Open Enrollment is a process allowing parents or guardians to apply for admission to any public school, as long as there is classroom space available. Parents and guardians often choose to open enroll their children in PVSchools for various reasons, including the unique and innovative award-winning programs, teaching philosophy, extracurricular activities, and more.

For more information on the open enrollment process, to include early bird open enrollment information, visit the PVSchools Open Enrollment webpage.
