ACP-O students are ready to learn Spanish.

Arizona College Preparatory-Oakland Campus (ACP-O) is an exceptionally supportive learning environment where highly motivated and academically driven students and families are challenged to strive for the impossible and be extraordinary. ACP-O teachers provide a rigorous accelerated curriculum to a diverse community of learners in 6th-8th grade. Students utilize Cornell notes, thinking maps, annotations, and keep a common binder to maximize student understanding. The daily schedule is aligned to the high school experience, preparing students for the future. ACP-O provides a common lesson through Academic Lab to improve students' executive function skills. Academic Lab provides opportunities for academic coaching, assemblies, and opportunities to celebrate success, all while not impacting the curriculum time of classes. ACP-O 6th graders are required to take band, orchestra, or choir; all students in 7th and 8th grades take Spanish. Students participate in a variety of competitions including Spanish National Exam, state science fair, Battle of the Books, VEX robotics, and Math Counts. Teachers sponsor and coach student clubs in both academic and non-academic areas as well as a wide range of athletic teams. ACP-O sends weekly emails from both the principal and teachers to ensure that families are connected to the school. Parents at ACP-O contribute to the success of students through involvement in many extracurricular activities. Parents on campus actively participate in coaching, volunteering, book studies, and the booster club. ACP-O is a place where students, parents, and faculty are focused on achieving success through hard work and determination.
