Neon After Dark Accredited by AdvancED™ Arizona Department of Education Athlos Traditional Academy - Chandler’s Only Charter School that Focuses on Mind and Body

Dear Athlos Families,

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year, Athlos Titans!

I am excited to introduce myself as your new principal here at Athlos Traditional Academy.

I’ve lived in Arizona for 14 years and grew up in the Ahwatukee area. Graduating from Arizona State University with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, I went on to get my Masters degree in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. I currently hold a Principal Certificate from the Arizona Department of Education. I have been with Legacy Traditional Schools for the past three years. In those three years, I taught two years in 1st grade before becoming the Assistant Principal at Legacy Traditional Schools-Maricopa Campus.

Athlos Traditional Academy’s mission is to provide motivated students with the opportunity to achieve excellence in an accelerated, back-to-basics learning environment taught by caring, knowledgeable, highly effective educators, in cooperation with supportive, involved parents.

We believe that frequent and consistent communication between school and home is essential to setting children up for success inside and outside of the classroom. We encourage our educators and families to keep an open line of communication. Please feel free to ask your child’s teacher or the front office staff any questions throughout the year.

As you all know, Athlos received an “A” rating last year by the Arizona Department of Education. We are proud to announce that we have maintained our “A” rating and look forward to earning it again this upcoming school year. Legacy Traditional Schools/Athlos Traditional Academy is considered a second family, and I look forward to collaborating with each and every family here at Athlos.
