What Makes Us Special

Grijalva Elementary, named after Arizona Congressman Raul M. Grijalva, is located in Midvale Park. We are a K-5 school with a bilingual strand at each grade level.

Fewer than 200 schools in the United States have attained this recognition.

The Grijalva School Community promotes the success of all children by:

  • Supporting each child's academic, emotional and social success
  • Defining and communicating expectations
  • Modeling and acknowledging positive behaviors
  • Providing equitable educational opportunities for all children
