Welcome to our Mesa K-6 Campus

  Welcome Ms. Liesl Hafner Our New Assistant Director!

Please help us welcome Mrs. Liesl Hafner as the new Assistant Director at ALA-Mesa! Liesl Hafner comes to us from a leadership school in Gilbert, Arizona. There she spent time on the Lighthouse Team and enjoyed sharing her notes with people from all over the Southwest. She is a 7 Habits Certified Trainer and in 2015 she had the opportunity to speak at the Leader in me Symposium. Liesl has taught in first, second, third, fourth, and fifth but has enjoyed her years as a specialist the most. As Title I Coordinator, she worked to make sure all Title students received the necessary services, as well as meeting with six reading groups throughout the day to give them the help they need. Liesl is thrilled to continue her work at the Mesa Campus. Liesl lives in Gilbert with her husband of twenty two years, and her two teens (one who is off to college in August). She has two dogs… one who is literally a pound puppy (born right there in the pound) and the other is a rescue – a Jack Russel – Dachshund mix. Dinner with family and coffee with friends are two of her favorite things. You’ll have the opportunity to meet Mrs. Hafner at our Meet the Teacher night on August 4th from 5-7.

Our Innovative Curriculum

In the lower school, the curriculum is structured in the Core Knowledge Sequence, which outlines the knowledge to be taught at each grade level. The curriculum is structured in a coherent, cumulative and content specific way, so students build knowledge in language arts, math, science, history, geography, and fine arts. The upper school curriculum builds on the classical education philosophy with a strong emphasis on liberal arts and studying the masters. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of a charter school K-6 or charter high school for your child, additional information about our charter schools in Gilbert, Mesa, San Tan Valley, Queen Creek and Anthem South, Arizona (AZ) can be found on our website.

I am so thankful we made the decision to place our son in American Leadership Academy! From the kind and caring staff to the outstanding education my child receives, ALA has exceeded my expectations!
We made a move across country in the middle of the year and after coming from one of the top schools on the east coast, where our child was barely surviving, he is now soaring in the clouds at ALA! The teachers here combine challenging their students with believing in them and it makes a world of a difference.
Not only does ALA have a great educational program, they also focus on other important roles like teaching children about patriotism and becoming good leaders. Thank you ALA for instilling good behavior in my child as well as a great education that is keeping him on his toes and boosting his confidence!
