The Phoenix Rising School is an amazing school with outstanding programs. My children are taught more than just the same classic subjects that other students learn. Lessons at The Phoenix Rising School are delivered to the students in a much more engaging way. Their programs are more hands on than other schools, especially their art classes, science lab, outdoor education, living history programs, etc. The hands on history program is great because it brings the field trip aspect found at living history farms and museums directly to the school all year round. My children have the opportunity to learn such things like cooking pioneer food around a campfire and learn how to write letters with ink a quill from an instructor dressed in period clothing. What other school has that as an internal educational program? I also love that The Phoenix Rising School is more focused on real education and helping our youth to become true seekers of knowledge, rather than simply preparing our children to take a standardized test. I am not the only parent to visit The Phoenix Rising School and say, I wish I had attended a school like this when I was growing up.
