Welcome to the Home of the Colts!

Welcome to the Ruth Fisher Elementary website — home of the Colts and proud to be a part of the Saddle Mountain School District! We are located in Tonopah, Arizona, which is approximately 50 miles west of Phoenix. 

Our staff is engaged in the passionate pursuit of excellence as we educate students in kindergarten through 8th grade. We hope that as you browse our website you will feel our school pride, our excitement for learning, and most importantly, that you feel at home.

Although we are geographically rural, we have technological advancements beyond many urban schools as our students enjoy the benefits of one-to-one Chromebooks in 3rd-8th grades and other devices in K-2nd grades. Likewise, our science classes in junior high will benefit from the use of interactive video platforms as they dialogue with other schools, teachers, and technology specialist from distant locations. 

In addition to welcoming seven new staff members to our Ruth Fisher family, we have also adopted some other changes. This year our four-day school week will be from Tuesday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for grades K-2nd and 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for grades 3rd-8th. This year we will re-introduce technology as a special area where our kids will learn keyboarding, programming, navigation, and fluent usage of design and creation skills with various applications.

We thank you for visiting our site, and feel free to contact us at any time. We would love to hear from you!
