Frye Elementary is located east of Arizona Avenue on Frye Road in the city of Chandler. Our school currently accommodates approximately 610 students from pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. We offer tuition-free preschool, Priority preschool, Community preschool and tuition-free all-day kindergarten. Our K-6 class size averages about twenty-two students per teacher. Frye is a Leader in Me school, where we are growing tomorrow’s leaders. We have many students who choose to come to Frye on Open Enrollment (they don't live within Frye's boundaries) because they are drawn to our school's high-quality teaching and learning environment.
Being a Title I school enables us to fund highly qualified educators to support those students who need more than what the core program has to offer. Frye employs 2.5 reading interventionists, behavior specialists, ELD teachers and a curriculum and instruction specialist. Frye Elementary offers many after and before school activities and opportunities. Before school, students may meet with tutors to receive extra help with their homework or class assignments. After school, students may participate in a variety of clubs such as choir, Battle of the Books, Recycling, Robotics, gardening, tutoring, and Chandler Sports League (CSL). We have an active Student Council made up of sixth grade student leaders. They sponsor a quarterly Leadership Assembly and involve the student body in many fun activities.
Parents are welcomed to the school as volunteers, working in classrooms, library or office. The Parent Teachers Organization (PTO) works hard every year to provide teachers and students with extra resources for art education, assemblies, field trips and special family events.
Most importantly, Frye Elementary is a school community that works together for the best interests of its children. The Frye teaching staff is committed to providing each student with a strong academic program in a safe and supportive educational environment. Believing in the importance of teamwork and collaboration, our staff motto is, "We're all in this together!" It is an honor and a privilege to educate tomorrow's leaders!
