About Pinnacle Peak

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!  Check out our middle school highlight website below for more information about the PPPS middle school program:

PPPS Middle School Highlights

Our Mission Statement:

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

Pinnacle Peak Preparatory School (PPPS) is a neighborhood school adjacent to Sonoran Hills Park in North Scottsdale. We offer Kindergarten through 8th grade, house two Community Education preschool classes and are home to Mascot, a before and after school program.

PPPS is committed to achieving high academic standards and a lifelong love of learning. Through a partnership between school, family, and community, students will maximize their potential using the Core Knowledge© Sequence and Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards. As a diverse community of learners, we will encourage a cooperative and collaborative effort to maintain a safe, healthy and respectful environment.

Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a well-attended and vital part of our school community. The support of our amazing PTO can be seen throughout our school - from our remodeled staff lounge, new playground equipment and generous classroom funds, to future projects including a refurbished library and a new school marquee.

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.
