A Tucson school Wednesday celebrated its selection as Arizona’s charter school of the year for 2016.

The Academy of Math and Science Prince campus on the city’s near northwest side was named for the award by the Arizona Charter Schools Association.

The Academy emphasizes a science, tech, engineering and math curriculum and has been operating since 2000. The school on West Prince Road is the charter’s flagship campus, with one other in Tucson and two in Phoenix.

The school was selected from among 500 charter schools in the state.

School officials said in a press release that 75 dignitaries, including elected officials and business leaders, were invited to the school for a Wednesday morning breakfast celebration.
