    A private Christian school that is affordable to middle and low income families? It sounds unheard of but Arizona International Academy is that school. The staff is great and truly cares about students. Every year the school goes on an international trip. It is a great experience for the students and an opportunity to learn about other cultures. Some of their past trips have included Italy Cambodia China Russia Spain Iceland and many others. AIA also has a focus on community service which the whole school partakes in every week. This is truly a great school that helps produce well-rounded students.

    Excellent school. Small caring. Ken Bursey goes above and beyond every year. He cares about each of the kids who attend. He looks for the best and figures out a way to bring that out in them. The international trips are amazing.
