School Information

Cool stuff!

  • Thank you!Thank you!

    We are a "Be Kind" school!

    We are officially a "Be Kind" school!!  Thank you so much to all the supportive parents, amazing students, and dedicated staff that assisted in creating this beautiful piece of art on our wall. 



What Makes Us Special

Here at Vesey we are family.  Some of our extracurricular activities include Nights at the International Wildlife Museum, Pizza night, Movie night, Science fairs and Fall Festival.  After School tutoring, Mariachi and Cross Country are some of the ways we encourage the best in our students.  

Vesey Elementary School has award winning teachers and staff and offers a variety of experiences to provide meaningful, individualized learning. Teachers provide one-on-one, small-group and whole-group instruction to meet the needs of every student. The school has a multi-age classroom as well as a “looping” option, where students can stay with the same teacher for more than one year.

Eat green pancakes on Dr. Seuss' birthday, make and ride your own pony for Rodeo days, Jump for Heart and participate in AZMerit send off with a live band. Just a few of the ways Vesey makes learning fun.

Vesey has a data wall for reading and math where teachers can see how all students are doing in color-coded fashion: names in red, yellow or green. Teachers use the wall for lesson planning and to get a clear picture of children’s needs. Through all classes, standards-based curriculum is designed to ensure children excel at the next level.

The school also offers orchestra and band, full-day kindergarten and arts instruction in a supportive environment where each child is made to feel important.
