My child attends Phoenix Advantage and I know there is a new principal so I cannot speak to the old stats but I can speak to what I see. My child is in Kinder and has an IEP prior to attending. This school was on board and didnt miss a beat and got her the services she needs right away. My child is thriving and is actually reading I amd impressed with the curriculum at this schoo.l They are not coloring they are learning social studies and math, there is an Art class and PE. This school is going to turn out great people for our community.
