Rancho Solano Preparatory School

You will love the community we have built here. 

Rancho Solano Preparatory School is a PK-12 international learning community for high achieving students that offers a highly individualized education experience completely unique to Arizona.

Welcome to Rancho Solano Preparatory School. We are proud of the community we have been building since 1954.

From Pre-K to 12th Grade, we offer students a safe, caring, and rigorous environment where they can excel and be successful. Learning should be fun and engaging, and we work every day to instill skills in our students to make them creative problem-solvers, independent thinkers, responsible, and respectful.

As a school that offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma program, we are inherently global in our thinking and welcome students and families from all over the world. We welcome the different cultures that students bring to the classroom and believe that these differences make us stronger.  

Our beautiful campuses, experienced faculty, and large course offerings make Rancho the best school for students to explore their passions and interests in depth.  

I invite you to visit and come see what makes Rancho special and if it could be the right place for your child.
