Open enrollment enables Arizona students to attend public schools outside their attendance area or their districts for one year. In order for a student to be considered to continue at Mendoza on Open Enrollment status for the next school year, parents must complete the Open Enrollment form and return to Mendoza’s front office before March 1st, 2018. Open enrollment forms will be sent home the second week of December. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Knutson at 480-472-1953.


Mendoza Elementary is an A+ School of Excellence and a STEM focus school that serves Kindergarten through sixth grade students.  Our goal is to provide students with engaging learning opportunities that allow students to reach their fullest potential and prepare them for success in life.
