Community

Partners in Education

San Tan Charter School is proud to be located in Gilbert and in the heart of the Morrison Ranch community.  Our goal as a citizen is to be involved in organizations and work together to share our  values  and school culture.  We believe in People + Process + Prossibilities.

We are members of the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce and are active by attending Chamber sponsored events and serve on Chamber committees.  Our Chamber connection links community leaders to our school and encourages community support for our programs and fundraising efforts.

San Tan Charter School is represented on the Gilbert Historic Museum Board of Directors and the Advisory Council for the Higley Center for the Performing Arts.  Both groups are influencial and allow San Tan Charter School to be recognized as a community support partner.  We attend many Gilbert events that are affiliated with the two organizations.

Our location in Morrison Ranch gives us so many opportunities to participate in events that are in the neighborhood.  Keep an eye on this page for updates as we become involved with the HOA of Morrison Ranch.

A couple of new outreach programs that we are excited about is our relationship with Junior Achievement and Grand Canyon University.

Junior Achievement (JA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing K-12 students for success through relevant programs that teach financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurial skills. The carefully designed, short K-12 classroom programs are provided free of cost to the school.

A School Coordinator identified by the school manages the program on behalf of JA which is our very own Middle school science teacher Lindsay Simington. The volunteers are recruited by classroom teachers and are typically parents.  JA staff provides training, supplies, and support to the School Coordinator.

Grand Canyon University was founded as a teacher’s college in Phoenix, Arizona in 1949.   Grand Canyon University (GCU) is a regionally accredited Christian university with an outstanding reputation for academic excellence. At their renowned College of Education, students acquire the essential knowledge and valuable skills needed for today’s most demanding and diverse classrooms and schools. A new campus is currently underway in our area.
