Power Ranch Elementary puts a focus on community building through its House System. The school is divided into four houses: Aqua, Ignus, Terra, and Verdus (Latin for the four elements: Water, Fire, Earth, and Wind). The House System design gives students an identity and sense of pride in a supportive and secure environment. The Houses provide for positive competition and closer rapport between students and teachers.
Power Ranch is the only Higley elementary campus to offer weekly elective courses for our students in first through sixth grade. Electives are designed by student interests and are focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Wellness. Throughout the year, students showcase what they have learned to peers, parents, and the community. Power Ranch offers Higley Youth Sports League, elementary school band/orchestra, Gifted education, and accelerated math and reading beginning in 3rd grade.
Power Ranch is located in Gilbert, AZ, a community listed as a “Best Place to Raise a Family in Arizona by WalletHub” (No. 7 in U.S. & No. 1 in Ariz. 2019).
