About Our

KGA PTO is proud to serve the school community of Knox Gifted Academy in the Chandler Unified School District. We are dedicated to helping foster a positive environment and community that best supports our students, parents, teachers and administrators. Our team works closely with faculty to promote the finest possible education for KGA students.

Fundraising by the PTO is essential and allows us to provide supplies, equipment and programs to KGA students that would otherwise fall outside of the district school budget. These types of items include computers, classroom materials, furniture, shade structures, playground equipment and any other needs that may arise throughout the year. PTO funds also support all PTO Family Events, Teacher Appreciation week, and much more.

Parent support is crucial, we can’t do it without your help!
