Cultivating Strengths. Transforming Lives.

What Makes JGS Different

Jones-Gordon is an innovative private school located in Paradise Valley, Arizona, serving students in 1st­–12th grades.

We believe in a holistic approach that is structured, yet flexible. Setting high expectations. Encouraging curiosity and creativity. Teaching kids to lean into struggle. Resilience. The result? A customized education that honors—and empowers—each and every student.

We deliver:

  • Strengths-based, student-centered programming
  • Small class sizes with low student-to-teacher ratios
  • Robust, technology-infused, college-prep curriculum
  • A daily FLEX program supporting students’ learning differences (included for lower and middle school students, optional in high school)
  • Project-based & experiential learning
  • Integrated emotional intelligence & executive function skill-building
  • A nurturing environment with ample social opportunities, all within a “culture of kindness”
  • An experienced & collaborative team who can’t help but go above & beyond!
