Anasazi is an IB PYP Candidate School
Anasazi Elementary School is proud to have been named an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme Candidate School. We look forward to this journey and the benefit it will have on the students whom we serve, our staff and our community as a whole.
IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students. We will be pursuing the designation of being an IB school because we believe that the framework provided by the IB curriculum provides our students with a dynamic, relevant and valuable education that they will need to be successful in an interconnected world.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. Learn more about the International Baccalaureate Program at SUSD.
Anasazi Academic Programs
World Language - Spanish Offering
Anasazi is using the Global Language Project (GLP) curriculum to support Spanish language acquisition. Instruction provided by a bilingual HQ elementary teacher includes games, songs and chants. We strive for 80% of instruction to be delivered in the target language of Spanish.
Anasazi students, grades K-5, participate in a world language program offering with a minimum of 45 instructional minutes a week. The objective is to build skills and language acquisition.
Pre-kindergarten students also have Spanish world language exposure with a certified teacher.
This program exposes students to a new language, as well as a new culture.

When entering the PACT room, you’ll be positive that you’re in Mrs. C’s room. This is where the PACT classes are taught. In PACT, we do amazing things. For example, balancing an egg three inches off the ground with just dry spaghetti, marshmallows, name tags, and straws. We also enjoy other activities such as building structures with straws, solving problems, puzzles or learning new games. Two of our favorite games are Set and Quiddler and you can find them here.
