Cope Properties, LLC purchased the charter school property at 25 E Drachman Steet in Tucson for $1.3 million ($44 PSF). The property is being renovated and will be leased to its wholly owned subsidiary, Pima Prevention Partnership, Inc. (PPP) for a new charter school, Pima Partnership Performing High School. PPP is a nationally recognized, non-profit technical and a direct service provider that operates three publicly-funded charter high schools for hard-to-reach and hard-to-teach students, three based in Pima and one in Maricopa County.
Claire Scheuren, Deputy Director, told us the new school change the whole neighborhood and be an expansion to the agency’s two existing schools across the street at 1346 N Stone Avenue, where Pima Partnership High School and Pima Preventive Partnership Academy are located. The new school is to be called Pima Partnership Performing High School for grades 9-12, a performing arts and comprehensive technology school – without textbooks.
Renovations on the property began May 28th with first day of school scheduled for August 4th. There are already 100 students registered for this fall with a maximum capacity of 300 students.
PPP operates statewide and nationally providing a comprehensive array of clinical and technical services to meet the needs of youths and families throughout Arizona, the U.S., and the U.S. territories and jurisdictions. The agency’s central goal is to help foster conditions for positive change by providing a range of services to individuals, community groups, agencies, and institutions. Established in 1991 as one of the Nation’s 250 anti-drug coalitions, the PPP has raised public health funds for its own program services and other agencies and institutions in excess of $221 million. The PPP has grown to become a $10.8 million, full service substance abuse and delinquency prevention provider throughout Arizona, as well as a nationally-recognized technical service provider for communities and governments.
