Cultivating Strengths. Transforming Lives.

What Makes JGS Different

Jones-Gordon is an innovative private school 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? An individualized 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
  • Project-based & experiential learning
  • Integrated social/emotional & executive function skill-building
  • A daily FLEX program supporting students with learning differences
  • A nurturing environment within a “culture of kindness”
  • An experienced & collaborative team who can’t help but go above & beyond!
