Enroll in Our Schools

In the Avondale Elementary School District, we grow every child as a thinker, problem solver, and communicator to pursue their future without limits; and we are enrolling students in preschool through eighth grades at any of our nine schools.  

Avondale ESD is an “A” rated school district by the Arizona Department of Education, and all of our schools are “A” and “B” rated schools. Our district continues to be recognized as the Best School District in the Best of the West, Best of the Best, and Best of the Desert Choice Awards; and six of our schools were named Best Schools by U.S. News and World Report.


Avondale Elementary District offers an award-winning preschool program for 3, 4, and 5-year old (not of school age) children at five schools throughout the district (Centerra Mirage STEM Academy, Copper Trails, Desert Star, Desert Thunder, and Wildflower Accelerated Academy). Our program has been named the best preschool in the "Best of the Best" and the "Best of the Desert" Awards in the West Valley.  We invite you to enroll your preschooler today!  Learn more from our Preschool page or call 623-772-5004.

Full-Day Kindergarten

Avondale ESD is proud to offer a free full-day kindergarten program at our elementary schools.  Kindergarten is a pivotal year for students as they begin their educational journeys, and it provides the necessary time for students to master important learning standards before first grade. Full-day kindergarten increases students' social and emotional skills and improves student achievement. Thanks to our community, our educators are able to spend more time helping our youngest students learn to read, write, and develop foundational skills important to achieving success in school.

Children are eligible for kindergarten if they are five years of age before September 1 of the school year.  Children may also be considered for kindergarten through an early entrance assessment if they will be five years of age between August 31 and October 31. The early assessment window opens in April of each year.
