Welcome to Gary A. Knox Elementary
Thank you for taking the time to visit the Gary A. Knox Elementary School website. Knox Elementary is home to 800+ students from kindergarten through sixth grade and we call ourselves the Knox Knights.

Our school is named after past Crane School superintendent Dr. Gary A. Knox. He served as superintendent from 1987-2004 and during that time made many improvements to not only the Crane District but districts throughout Arizona. We work hard to teach our students the character traits that Dr. Knox believed in - honesty, integrity and the importance of academic achievement.

We have many things that make us very proud.  Student achievement is an area of pride and also our state of the art vegetable garden, the "Garden of Learning" which is sponsored by our community partner, JV Smith Companies.  Our garden is a 63-bed organic garden that grows 25 different varieties of vegetables both in the winter and spring.  It is irrigated with city water to ensure that all that is consumed from the garden is safe for our kids. Our garden exposes our students to healthy eating choices and responsibility as EVERY student participates in the care of the garden.

I'm confident that once you spend time on our campus, you'll agree that our school is a wonderful place. We have amazing students, a dedicated staff and fantastic parent volunteers. I look forward to meeting you. Please call or email me.

Sincerely,

Laura Hurt

Laura Hurt - Principal

I am very proud to serve as the principal at Gary A. Knox Elementary School. This is my thirty-first year in education, my fifteenth year as a principal in the Crane District and my seventh year at Knox. I have been fortunate enough to work at Centennial Middle School, Pueblo Elementary and Mesquite Elementary. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in English/Secondary Education and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and both are from the University of Arizona. I am married and have one grown child, however, I also claim to be the mom of almost 800 other children that I work with each day at Knox. I welcome your thoughts and questions and value your involvement in our school.
