Welcome to Copper Trails

  • Copper Trails School first opened its doors to students in the Avondale Elementary School District in 2008.  Since that time, our campus has grown to a preschool through 8th grade campus of approximately more than 1,000 students. As a school with an arts focus, we believe that every student has the capacity to impact the space around them through positive creativity and ingenuity.  


    We believe that every student will develop in academics, humanities and character to positively impact their world.  We work as a community to provide every child with learning experiences and opportunities that allows them to reach their greatest potential.  We truly believe that all children are capable of success - No Exceptions!

Mission Statement

  • At Copper Trails, every student will develop in academics, humanities, and character to positively impact their world.

Vision Statement

  • Copper Trails implements daily structures following a master schedule to engage students in differentiated thematic lessons based on the Avondale School District pacing guide, student academic growth measured by benchmark assessments and staff collaboration. We recognize that students, parents, teachers and administration have equal parts in the journey and success of our students. We emphasize on academics, humanities and Coyote Character. Through these partnerships, we create opportunities for students to learn, explore, understand, appreciate culture, values and traditions. We do this through engaging classroom lessons, assemblies, extra-curricular activities, field trips and promoting community involvement. We view and teach all subject areas equally in order to value all student strengths and to teach problem solving, thinking and communication skills.
