From the Principal

  • Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year at Granite Mountain!

    We are thrilled to be a part of your child’s education at Granite Mountain School for this upcoming school year. Our focus at Granite Mountain School is to meet the unique educational needs of 5th and 6th grade students. Through our outdoor school environment, we are able to offer our students a wide range of opportunities and experiences not traditionally available for 5th and 6th grade students. Due to our two-teacher teaming model, students are able to succeed in a smaller, more personalized environment.

    Granite Mountain School is one of very few schools in Arizona, both nationally and internationally to have received STEM certification through AdvancEd School Accreditation. The Granite Mountain staff is dedicated to providing a STEAM-infused (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics) educational experience. Students have opportunities to learn grade-level content material, integrated with critical thinking and real-world applications. In addition to our rigorous grade-level curriculum, we offer an accelerated honors curriculum which provides the appropriate challenge for our highest performing students.

    At Granite Mountain School, every student is provided an innovative, character-rich education in a safe environment. Our students have the opportunity to explore Band, Orchestra, Choir, PE, Art, STEAM, Intramural Sports, and a wide range of before and after school club activities. Additionally, our technology-integrated, with 1:1 student access to computers, serves to prepare our students for college and career readiness in the 21st Century.

    It is our sincere pleasure to be able to ensure that every student at Granite Mountain has the opportunity to learn and succeed at high levels with professionals who are focused on the individual needs of every child. We look forward to preparing your 5th & 6th grade students for educational success during their intermediate school years.

    Have a wonderful year!

    Teresa Bruso, Principal
