This was a great move for our daughter! The specialized program, teacher attentiveness and experience, leadership of the campus, and supplemental after school programs (not just "daycare") create a really productive, dynamic educational environment!

I'm greatful for the amazing K teacher my child has this being her first year of school. Teacher wonderful, front desk staff..... Rude rude rude. I had a concern with one of the other teachers at the start of the year, asked to see the principal to discuss. Admin was defensive and did not support my concerns and reluctantly called for the principal who listened to my concerns and said I needed to speak directly to the staff about what I didn't like and if my problem was not solved to let her know.... I didn't feel she too supported my concerns I had with my child and the other teacher and felt as if I was blown off. I've not liked any of the admin staff for being rude or judgemental, etc. The school is going through a major remodel which is wonderful and I hope the new site with provide adequate parking because there's no place to park and if your child is preK or K and pick up after school you must park at times 2 blocks down the street and walk to the classroom because there is no parking and traffic issues in the morning and afternoon.... So make sure if you're planning on attending here you are not late and your child gets too many tardies because the PTO here have made it a policy to a. after x amount your child has to eat at a table by themselves and not with class as punishment which how does shaming the child in front of the entire lunch room being laughed at by other students help??? And b. After x tardies now the entire class cannot participate in upcoming parties or celebrations because of one or however many students that's had over x tardies. PTO... What a joke

Love the school and administration. My children have received a quality education and the teachers have been a pleasure to work with. No real negative issues to report thus far.

Communication is non-existent across the board. Very liberal classrooms, the whole class is reprimanded for the actions of a few, most teachers have no control of their classrooms, none. Correct answers being marked incorrect because the answer key has a type-o and when aproached with the correct answer the teacher dismisses the student with the correct answer! Bullying is a huge issue at this school as well.

Pima Elementary used to be a decent school, until the high number of staff swaps and new principals. My child has been attending pima for a few years, and recently this school has drastically declined in communication skills with anyone, the principal is never available without an appointment, the office staff is rude and extremely unpleasant to deal with. Above all that, the pick up and drop off lack of safety and supervision is a disgrace to Scottsdale School District. We have had to contact Scottsdale Police multiple times regarding poor pick up lanes, unsafe, speeding drivers, drivers driving around the crosswalk, on the opposite side of the road into oncoming traffic, etc. The list just goes on and on, very disappointing.
