Principal’s Message


Welcome all to the Rocket family! My name is Maria Etchebarren, and I am
honored to have been selected by the Governing Board as your new Principal for
the 2024-2025 school year. As an experienced teacher and administrator, I have
over 14 years of experience working with diverse populations in the educational
setting both in elementary and middle school. My core and ethical values keep me
focused on meeting the needs of the students, staff, and families to build a
community based on transparency and accountability to establish a safe learning environment of diversity and equity.

Albert Einstein Academy, AZ is a college preparatory STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) School. The STEAM approach to learning will teach the value of taking thoughtful risks, how to engage in hands-on learning, and the importance of persistence in problem-solving. Our task is to meet the diverse academic, physical, and creative needs of all scholars while inspiring them to achieve their fullest potential.

At Albert Einstein Academy, AZ no child will be left unchallenged through academic rigor that reaches beyond the basics of the Arizona Standards. In addition to our interdisciplinary STEAM instruction, our scholars educational experience will be enhanced by Physical Education, Foreign Language, Community Service and Leadership opportunities.

When you enroll your child in Albert Einstein Academy, AZ in the Fall of 2024, you and your child will have the opportunity to be involved in the creation of our school culture from the very beginning! Parental support and involvement are encouraged and appreciated. If you would like to be a part of our Parent Teacher Organization or Parent Advisory Board, please reach out to me. I know that as we work together, your child’s time with us will be a positive and successful experience.

We know that children will reach their fullest potential in an intellectually engaging, positive, safe learning environment and we will strive to create that for your child. In Arizona you have a choice in selecting the “just right” school for your child. Enroll now! (Unlike traditional public schools, we do have class size limitations.) Our goal at Albert Einstein Academy, AZ is to far exceed your expectations!
