Admissions

Arizona is a “school choice” state and to help parents make an informed decision about Skyline Gila River  is the right school for their child, Skyline Gila River  uses an interview process; however, a student or parent attending an interview is not a condition of enrollment.  We use the information provided to get to know our potential students better.  Required Documents to be turned in prior to enrollment.

  • IEP if applicable (must be reviewed through the SpEd Department before enrollment). IEP information is used for placement and continuity of services, not as a determinate of enrollment
