Meet Principal Wade

Principal Thompson

Sarah Wade joined the Student Choice family in 2020, when she proudly became the principal of the Surprise campus. She earned a MA in educational leadership from Northern Arizona University and a BA in elementary education from Arizona State University. Sarah’s 20 years of service in education include teaching preschool, elementary, and high school students with a recent focus on the implementation of professional learning communities within school systems as a district instructional coach. Sarah’s continuous support of students and faculty has pushed her to become knowledgeable in programs and strategies that maximize student achievement. She has become a certified trainer in Kagan Structures, Thinking Maps, and Write from the Beginning, allowing her to pass on her knowledge to the campuses which she has served. Among her greatest achievements are her contributions to an A+ awarded school, receiving the Westside Impact Teacher of the Year Award in 2016 and being a district Pride Award recipient. Sarah is excited to lead the Surprise campus into 2021; helping students achieve their goals as they work toward high school graduation and beyond!

Principal Wade's favorite quote is by Mahatma Gandhi, "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."
