  • Welcome from Principal Botts

    Principal Kerby

    Welcome to Capitol School! It is an honor to serve the school community as incoming principal for the 22-23 school year. 

    At Capitol, we set high expectations for all prekindergarten through eighth grade students and believe that education provides students with the keys to unlocking their future.

    Located in downtown Phoenix, near the Capitol on 16th Avenue and Van Buren, our school has been recognized as a state of the art facility for its innovative design featuring a large ramada, breezeways, classroom pods, and natural lighting by the Lucas Foundation.

    We encourage you to join our school community and take part in our numerous programs that focus on core academics, as well as numerous programs to develop the whole child even beyond the rigors of reading, language arts, writing, mathematics, science and social studies. We work hard to improve our students, ourselves, and our community. For a preview of our programs, please review them under the section titled “programs” on this website.

    As the school principal, I invite you to visit our school or schedule a tour if you are new to our community. My door is always open to parents, students and anyone interested in learning more about Capitol School.

    Welcome to Capitol, we cannot wait to meet you!


    Mrs. Kerby Botts
