Pinnacle Peak Preparatory School (PPPS) is an "A" rated, K-8 neighborhood school adjacent to Sonoran Hills Park in North Scottsdale. We are the only K-8 in the Paradise Valley school district, and we strive to prepare all students, from Pre-K through 8th grade, to be successful in high school and beyond.

PPPS is committed to achieving high academic standards and a lifelong love of learning. Students will maximize their potential using the Core Knowledge© Sequence in Social Studies and Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards by virtue of a partnership between school, family, and community. As a diverse community of learners, we encourage a cooperative and collaborative effort to maintain a safe, healthy, and respectful environment. Our students are offered multiple opportunities to build their leadership skills through group work, student government, National Junior Honor Society, and volunteering. We provide a rotation of special classes to our K-6 students that includes music, art, and PE, as well as a focus on STEM, with a specialist in that area. Our middle school students get a chance to select from a variety of electives that range from musical theater and drama to STEM and robotics. We support all of our learners with a full-time reading specialist, gifted math and reading teachers, math support personnel, and special education resource teachers. Every student at Pinnacle Peak has the support to SOAR like an Eagle!!

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 new playground equipment and generous classroom funds, to the newly refurbished library and front lobby.


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