Rise & Shine’s mission is to empower students to rise above significant barriers, discover their talents and gifts & to shine as inspirational leaders within their community.
Rise & Shine is a private school for exceptional students in grades K-12. Our school services gifted & special needs students and their siblings in our Maricopa Center or in the student's own home. Rise & Shine is based on a homeschooling model and is housed in a commercialized, residential home. Students learn in a safe, loving atmosphere and are able to experience learning in a "real life" environment.. Students are multi-aged & multi-leveled, work together in teams & independently. Students enjoy a low teacher to student ratio based on their needs. Students are not put into "grade levels" but rather "interest groups." Our philosophy is based on student-centered learning; the teacher is leading 10% of the time and the students are leading 90% of the time. This approach makes learning fun, engaging & ignites a true love for learning.
