About Pinnacle Peak

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.
