Phoenix Middle School

Welcome to ASU Prep Phoenix Middle School

The academic focus for students in the middle school program (6-8) is to expand on the skills of reading, writing and mathematics while adding an increased focus on science and social studies. Students receive core academic classes from teachers who are experts in their content area. Students also receive instruction in art, music, physical education and Spanish language. Students accelerate course taking based on readiness, completing high school credits in middle school.

Students at ASU Prep use technology to address problems and challenges and work collaboratively on solutions to local and global community issues and participate in service programs. Through research projects, students develop an understanding of the broader community and how they can make an impact.

ASU Prep Phoenix Middle School students work together as a grade level through foundation courses to identify problems in their community and find solutions to address. Students made blankets and collected basic toiletries along with other essentials to deliver to nearby homeless shelters. In partnership with Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, they also collect school supplies for students in South Sudan.

Dress Code

For kindergarten through grade eight, the school uniform is a maroon polo top and khaki bottoms. For grades nine through twelve, the uniform is a maroon or white collared shirt and khaki, charcoal gray or black uniform bottoms.

Fridays are ASU Fridays. Students may choose to wear a gold collared shirt in place of the regular uniform shirt. Bottoms remain the same.

Family Involvement Program

One of the pillars for ASU Preparatory Academy includes Family. Family partnerships help make critical contributions to student success. The purpose of our Family Involvement Program is to help families be active contributors to their child’s educational success; particularly assuring their child is prepared for success in college.

This program will apply to all registered families of ASU Preparatory Academy. The School and Family Liaison will track credits earned. Guiding points:

  • Each family will be required to fulfill a minimum of 30 credits of service (15 credits per semester)
  • Any family member can help contribute to the accrual of points through their service
  • One credit is worth approximately one hour of service
  • Credits are assessed to activities based on the level of involvement and the direct relationship to student support
  • Statements of current credit status will be distributed twice a year in December and May
  • ASU Prep sends a weekly email newsletter. If you would like to receive one for your school, please sign up in our front office.

Attendance

All students are expected to be in attendance every day school is in session. Regular attendance is essential for success in school; therefore, absences shall be excused only for necessary and important reasons. We do, however, realize that health and family take preference, but we ask families to plan activities on days and times other than when school is in session.

Our attendance policy is governed by ARS 15-803 – School attendance; exemptions; definitions:

  1. It is unlawful for any child between six (6) and sixteen (16) years of age to fail to attend school during the hours school is in session, unless excused pursuant to section ARS 15-803.
  2. A child who is habitually truant or who has excessive absences, may be adjudicated an incorrigible child. Absences may be considered excessive when the number of absent days exceeds 10% (18 days) of the number of required attendance days prescribed in section ARS 15-803, subsection B, paragraph 1.
  3. As used in this section:
    1. “Habitually truant” means a child who is truant for at least five (5) school days unexcused within a school year.
    2. “Truant” means an unexcused absence for at least one (1) class period during the day.
    3. “Truant child” means a child who is between six (6) and sixteen (16) years of age and who is not in attendance at a public or private school during the hours that school is in session, unless excused as provided by this section.

Absences

When a student needs to be absent, we ask that parents call the attendance line before 8:15 a.m. each day the student is absent. State law mandates that the school record a reason for all student absences. This greatly reduces the need to call you at work or home to confirm the absence. The absence will be unexcused if no reason is given. When calling, please leave the child’s name (with spelling), date of absence, grade level, reason for absence and a telephone number where you can be reached in case we have questions. Federal law requires that we make every attempt to contact parents on the day the student is absent.
