I love Arlington Elementary. More important, Austin loves this school and has had a positive learning and growing experience. I wish there were 12 grades instead of 8. I know when he leaves after this year, he'll take good memories with him. He's been influenced by not only the great teaching staff but everyone who works at the school. Thank you all. Mr. Turner, thank you for everything. Joyce Sheppard

This school has been nothing but incredible for my kids. This school challenges the kids. They have been able to customize for my gifted child and helped get my other child to par with her classmates. (Their other school was a joke) Teachers are very easy to get in contact with as well as the administration. This school not only teaches but works like a family.

This school is great. The school faculty is awesome. Communication between parents and faculty is awesome. If you request to be notified of your child's abscense they call you if you didn't call them. This is great when your kids try to not go to school without your consent. It's not something you find out about a few days later. If you give the correct contact numbers you will be notified. My children sometimes don't like it cause they say that they can't get away with much as there are cameras in the hallways that monitors the school. I am very comfortable with my children's safety at this school. They are involved with Dare and STARS. Which I love and so did my children. They learned alot.

This is a nice, little school with a casual atmosphere. The teachers are all wonderful and truly care about the kids. There are few problems, if any, with students getting in trouble. There are occasional fights, but they are rare, and the principal always quells them and disciplines the kids in unique, non-violent ways that cause the kids to rethink the way they deal with issues.

I wish the situation (rural school setting)permitted more extracurricular activities and that the students would truly want to participate in these. And, I wish the parents' involvement would increase at all levels, but mostly in the school's orientation/open house and especially in the parent/teacher conferences. I believe that the school tries to instill healthy, substantive values in its students and that is very admirable especially in this day and age.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
