Neely Traditional Academy’s primary focus is on the acquisition of basic skills through direct instruction that puts the teacher at the front of the classroom. Teachers conduct instruction in an environment of respect and productivity. This environment supports both visual and auditory learners and provides repetition and consistency. Highlights of our back-to-basics philosophy include a focus on reading, writing, and mathematics. Independent study skills are fostered in a structured classroom where minimal interruptions occur within the academic day. Neely Traditional offers a unique opportunity that fosters a healthy work ethic and a desire to pursue excellence among students and staff.

Neely Traditional Academy is a program of choice. The acquisition of basic skills, primarily through direct instruction, is viewed as the foundation of the learning process. Priority is given to the fundamental tools of learning in the core academic areas of phonics and reading; grammar, spelling and writing; mathematics; history and geography; and science. Students are given opportunities to apply those skills in a meaningful and reinforcing way. Our program provides an academic environment which develops respect, responsibility, honesty, integrity, leadership, and citizenship in accordance with the District's mission statement.

  2. Children of a district employee, with a cap of 20% (including children who are a sibling of another enrolled student)
  3. Children residing in the Gilbert Public School boundaries
  4. Children not residing in the Gilbert Public School Boundaries

New applicants in grades 1st-6th will be admitted in order of the receipt of the application based on the priority order above.

Starting January of the requested school year, applicants will be contacted to attend an orientation if a place has been obtained through the lottery for Kindergarteners or if a place is available for 1st-6th grade students.
