San Tan Charter School is a tuition-free K – 12 public charter school located in the Morrison Ranch Community of Gilbert, Arizona. We are a uniform-free charter school providing Traditional, Gifted, and Montessori education. Our elementary campus partners with our on-campus Private Montessori Preschool to provide before school and after school care options from 7:00 AM – 5:45 PM.
As a school community, we work collaboratively to ensure each student has an academic and social environment designed for their individual success; fostering creativity, critical thinking, and inspiring happiness while honoring each person’s humanity.
At San Tan Charter School individualized learning matters. Our Traditional, Gifted, and Montessori programs are designed to support the learning styles of our students. We meet students where they are and bring them to their cutting edge through Individualized Learning Plans (ILP) and quarterly conferences. Parents collaborate with teachers to set the homework level that is right for their child and lifestyle. As students grow, they join the collaboration by setting their own quarterly character and education goals.
Individual Learning Plans (ILP) for all students
Small class sizes with personalized attention
Students learn at their own level with differentiated learning groups
Homework level chosen by parents
Individual and collaborative projects
Active learning experiences with hands-on discovery
The child is endowed with unknown powers, which can guide us to a radiant future. If what we really want is a new world, then education must take as its aim the development of these hidden possibilities.

We’ve been very happy since moving our daughter to STCS two years ago. She feels very successful academically. Great supportive teachers and staff. We’ve had a great middle school experience and we’re looking forward to her joining the new campus.

San Tan has made a huge impact on not only my life but my family’s and I would never change that for anything, because I probably wouldn’t have achieved half the stuff I’ve done now. It’s not only an honor but a blessing to be here at San Tan. Being able to be a role model to all the young kids, having such a positive influence on this school, I couldn’t have done it without the help from Dr. Sippel and his amazing staff. And I appreciate everything that San Tan Charter School has done for me.
