Sun Canyon Elementary School

Welcome to Sun Canyon Elementary School, home of the Coyotes. We are part of the Fowler Elementary School District which began over 120 years ago. We are located west of beautiful, sunny downtown Phoenix, Arizona. Our dedicated staff educate approximately 525 students from preschool through fifth grade. We are thrilled with the opportunity to guide your children through their educational journey.

Our Mission

The Sun Canyon community will provide a safe, welcoming environment for all students and families. With our high expectations, we will educate the future leaders of tomorrow.

What We Offer

To accomplish our mission, we offer many enriching activities and programs in which your child may participate. We encourage you to check out Our Programs page or contact your child’s teacher to learn more about getting involved in school activities!


To be eligible to start kindergarten, a student must be five years of age by August 31 of the current school year. The entrance age for a first-grader who has not attended kindergarten is six years old prior to August 31 of the current school year. We require a birth certificate at the time of enrollment to verify the student’s age.
