Students in kindergarten adopt the SAGES, parishioners of All Saints?' Church who meet once a month for lunch and conversation. This past February, the students made Valentine cards for their friends and sang Valentine's Day songs with them.
Math is fun and hands-on in first grade! The skills of counting, writing, and identifying place value from zero to one hundred are developed, along with adding and subtracting two and three numbers with regrouping. Language-based problem solving and manipulatives continue to be used to help more abstract concepts become understandable.
Self expression through music and drama plays an important role in the development of self confidence, creativity, and an overall appreciation of the performing arts. Students in second grade learn hand bells and have the opportunity to perform at chapel, Special Persons Day, and as part of plays and musicals presented each spring.
Each year students in third grade present their Heroes and Heroines projects. Students first read a biography and complete research about their chosen hero/heroine. The research includes information on the childhood, adulthood, accomplishments, and later years of the person chosen. Each student completes a full report and then creates a display board to present to the School.
The students in fourth grade discuss the broadness and influence of science in our world. Armed with the knowledge of the desert biome, the students take a special field trip to the North Mountain Preserve and Visitor Center. With the help of Ranger Donnie, students plant baby saguaro cacti which will thrive in the preserve for years.
In science, fifth grade students focus on continued investigations in order to develop understanding of science content, to grow investigative skills, and to learn to value inquiry and cooperative teamwork.
Each fall, the sixth grade students visit Northern Arizona on an overnight trip. One stop on the trip is the Grand Canyon! Students hike out to Shoshone Point where earth science teacher Ms. Alexis Marsden teaches about the geology of the canyon and the river.
Among the many highlights of the eight grade students' final year at All Saints' is the IDEA project. The much anticipated IDEA project is project-based learning that utilizes multiple disciplines to identify, research, write, and present a specific topic of each student?'s choosing.
All Saints’ Episcopal Day School educates children in the light of God - mind, body, and soul - in a nurturing community.  A strong academic program is a given, but not the sole pillar of an All Saints’ education.  Our school combines academic excellence with spiritual and moral formation to produce well-educated children with the confidence, compassion, and creativity to lead fruitful lives and to serve a world in need.  An All Saints’ education transforms head to soul.

School Notes:

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE
All Saints’ Episcopal Day School, founded in 1963, enjoys a long tradition of educating children in pre-k through eighth grade.  Since the beginning, All Saints’ has strived to cultivate an ethic of excellence in its students.  Our school prides itself on providing children with a solid, robust academic foundation comparable to any competitive school coast to coast.  The graduates of All Saints’ consistently gain admission to top local high schools as well as notable boarding schools throughout the nation.  Many are invited to participate in the most selective academic programs or advanced courses available to high school freshmen.  All are well-prepared for secondary education as evidenced by the success they achieve in their various schools of choice and the anecdotal feedback of admissions directors throughout the Phoenix metro area.  Many All Saints’ alumni move on to attend highly-ranked undergraduate programs both locally and nationally.  An All Saints’ foundation enables its graduates to go anywhere with confidence knowing that they have the tools to succeed.All Saints’ is an admissions-based independent school that welcomes children of all faiths, races, and economic backgrounds.  In small classroom sizes (typically 16:1 in lower school and 20:1 in middle school) All Saints’ teachers engage students in critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration.  Through various opportunities in class and on campus, students practice and learn how to communicate effectively.  With the support of their teachers, our students also acquire study skills and come to understand the value of organization, time-management, and effort.  They learn that artistic and physical pursuits feed the mind, body, and soul through outstanding experiences in their art, music, drama, and physical education classes.  The challenging academic curricula, together, with these valued specials, inspire All Saints’ students to work hard, take-risks, and persevere.  Over time, All Saints’ students learn how to learn. The ultimate goal of All Saints’ Episcopal Day School is to instill in students an enthusiastic love of learning that transcends institutions and endures a lifetime.

SPIRITUAL AND MORAL FORMATION
All Saints’ Episcopal Day School emphasizes character development and social justice from the earliest of grades.  To this end, our school incorporates chapels into its weekly schedule.  Lessons presented in chapel by the clergy and day school students stress worthy virtues and themes pertaining to social justice.  Through service projects, donation drives, fund-raising, and All Saints’ partnership with St. Paul’s School in Haiti, All Saints’ students from pre-K through eighth grade engage in projects and discussions that move them to think beyond themselves.  Through chapel lessons, they are made aware of the people all around them and the needs both in our local community and world.  The intention of chapel also is to cultivate and nurture a strong sense of community by forwarding universal ideas and teachings found in all faiths.  In accordance with the Episcopal ethos, the school firmly promotes inclusivity and treasures the diversity present within our community.  The message conveyed both in chapel and at All Saints’ Episcopal Day School is to respect differences but also to recognize that despite these, we are a community united by common goals and core values.  The ultimate goal in guiding students’ spiritual and moral development is to help them become competent, confident, lifelong learners who are responsible, caring, contributing citizens to the communities and diverse world in which they live.

INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY
A hallmark of All Saints’ Episcopal Day School is its warm and vibrant community committed to engendering an appreciation for individuals of different races, cultures, religions, socio-economic backgrounds, physical abilities, and sexual orientation.  Our community is called to be intentionally inclusive and proactively strives to welcome and honor all people.  Actively engaged administrators, faculty, staff, parents, clergy, and students on campus serve as positive, caring role models to one another.  Through the All Saints’ Parent Association, parents support the school’s various programs, projects, and activities by giving of their time, skills, experience, and creativity.  All Saints’ Episcopal Day School actively cultivates a strong partnership between the school and its families to ensure that students are supported optimally.  Teachers promote an open door policy and encourage open lines of communication.  Opportunities exist whereby older students interact with those in younger grades.  All Saints’ church is integral as well to the school’s sense of community, sharing and inspiring our common values and our binding sense of purpose.  The ultimate goal of the All Saints’ community is to create a nurturing academic, social, and spiritual climate where people learn, work, and play together with respect, responsibility, and understanding.
