Meanwhile, the American Leadership Academy charter chain and Queen Creek Unified School District each gained around 800 students. Portable Practical Educational Preparation — which oversees the Arizona Virtual Academy and the Arizona Insight Academy — added more than 4,000 students this school year, representing a 46% increase.
