Elementary School

A Warm Welcome from the Principal

    It is with great joy that I welcome you to Tempe Christian School! 

Let me share what I believe you will find at Tempe Christian School! 

·Kids who love their school! 

·Parents, like you, who want an excellent Bible-based, safe, nurturing environment with the highest standard of academics, discipline and values.

·People who take pride in their beautiful facilities. 

·A church leadership who has a heart for the ministry of the school. 

·A Christ-centered, child-focused administrative staff who are energetic, joyful and organized! 

·Professional, highly qualified teachers and support staff who consider their work a calling and a ministry of God.  They know their stuff!  I have found from them a deep love for the children and a desire to help each child be all that he or she can be.  Thank you, Jesus!

I am very impressed with the dedication and vision that this school community holds for TCS.  Together we are making the future even brighter for the sake of the children and for the love of Christ to spread deeper into every heart and home!

There are so many people, volunteers and paid, who love this school and continue to give and serve to keep it a very special place.  To each and every one, THANK YOU.  If your family is looking for a new school, please check us out, come for a tour and set up an appointment to talk with an administrator.  Let us show you why we think TCS is so GREAT!

Sincerely Serving,

Mrs. Patty Lira

Elementary School Admissions

We accept students who demonstrate a desire to abide by the educational and spiritual principles of the school, maintain high standards of Christian conduct, and have the ability to do the required work.  Church affiliation is not a prerequisite for enrollment.  Parents must exhibit a desire for a private, Christian education experience for their children and be willing to cooperate with the school’s policies and procedures. 


To ensure academic excellence, TCS maintains class sizes of no more than 22 students in Kindergarten and first grade and 24 for grades two through five, employs state certified teachers, provides a comprehensive curriculum, and administers the Stanford Achievement Test to monitor instructional progress.  School hours in the elementary school are 8:20am – 3:00pm

Curriculum K-5

The TCS curriculum publishers include:


ACSI for Bible


A Beka for History, Reading, Spelling, Phonics, Handwriting, and Language


Bob Jones University Press for Science


Harcourt Brace for Mathematics

Our curriculum also includes Beginning Spanish Instruction, Physical Education, Computer Application, Library Use, Study Skills, Art Masterpiece and Music. 


TCS follows the holiday schedule of the Tempe School District and Arizona State University.  We begin near the middle of August and end at the end of May.

Chapel Service

TCS holds weekly chapel service for all classes.  The purpose is to teach a reverence for worshiping God, and to learn about Him and His ways in a spirit of school unity. 

Academic Honors

Students are encouraged to achieve academic excellence.  Students in grades 3-5 who attain all A’s and B’s will be placed on the Honor Roll at the end of each quarter.  Students attaining all A’s will be placed on the Principal’s List.
