Performance Academy (Grades 3-8)

At Mesquite Elementary, we are committed to supporting the development of the whole child. Our staff works hard to ensure a strong academic foundation for all, while actively working with each student's needs. Our commitment to the needs of our students is reflected in our Performance Academy.

What is the Performance Academy?

Gilbert Public School's unique Performance Academy program, hosted at Mesquite Elementary, allows students involved in elite athletics or performing arts to experience everything a school has to offer, while still maintaining their training and competitive schedule.

Students are in school every morning (7:15am-12:15pm) and can be transported directly to their gym or training center of choice after school.

How We Learn

The Personalized Learning Platform and GPS Global Academy Curriculum allow for individualized learning experiences with direct support from teachers and other students. The student is able to work at their own pace with daily classroom teaching and group work. Weekly mentoring sessions help to ensure student success. 
Attached is information on how parents of Performance Academy students can best support their child at home.
