In August 2016, the PVSchools Governing Board voted to approve a K-8 model for Pinnacle Peak Preparatory School (PPPS). We launched our first 7th grade class at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year, and 8th grade commenced the following school year. 

We are excited to offer a K-8 model and we believe there are many benefits to attending PPPS. Research shows that students benefit from smaller class sizes, increased teacher support, and more flexibility. If you are interested in a public school with a private school feel, please contact our school office at 602-449-6700.

Hear from current students and parents as to why PPPS is the right choice:

PPPS Middle School Curriculum
