Pointe Schools was founded on the need to create a school environment that would support parents as they built character and leadership qualities in their students, provide an excellent education and be financially accessible to everyone. In the fall of 1999, Pointe Educational Services was formed as a non-profit corporation, in order to open and operate an independent public school. In 2001, North Pointe Prep (grades 7-12) opened and in 2002, Canyon Pointe Academy (grades K-6) and Pinnacle Pointe Academy (grades K-6) opened.

Arizona State Retirement
Since Charter Schools are not required to participate in the Arizona State Retirement System (ASRS), comparing teacher salaries can often be similar to comparing apples to oranges. Unlike many Charter Organizations who do not participate in ASRS, Pointe Schools matches the 11.64% employee contribution to retirement. That means a first year certified teacher making $39,000 receives an additional $4,539.60 in ASRS contribution for a total annual compensation of $43,539.60.
