Neighborhood Spotlight: Clemente Ranch

Matthew Coates September 23, 2016


The Clemente Ranch neighborhood in Chandler, AZ is bound by the streets of Germann, Queen Creek, Dobson, and Alma School Road in the zip code of 85286. While it doesn’t officially consume the entire square mile, we welcome Homestead Park and Stonefield as our sister neighborhoods, as well as a luxury apartment community. Most of the homes were built in the mid-1990s and range from 1,500 square feet up to nearly 4,000. The roughly 1,600 homes have all-tile roofs and are both one and two-story, some with pools, some without. Search Clemente Ranch homes for sale here

Public Schools:

Quite possibly the #1 reason people choose the Clemente Ranch/south Chandler area is because of the school system, which ranks among the highest in Arizona.

Tarwater Elementary – an A+ award-winning school for Kindergarten thru 6th grade that is highly regarded, evidenced by the open enrollment student presence. Many special events pepper the school year, including Fall Festival, several grade-level plays, spirit weeks, and field trips. The average class size is under 25, giving teachers more of an opportunity to work one-on-one with students.

Bogle Junior High – for 7th and 8th graders, is truly a transitional environment that readies students to move from elementary to high school. This home of the Bulldogs, and along with education, provides sports clubs and parent booster opportunities for students and families.

Hamilton High School – not in the Clemente Ranch neighborhood, but the associated high school for the area.
