this school was horrible they way the principle went about handling issues with the students was ridiculous. My son had a knife pulled on him on the school bus and they treated him like the suspect. Brought an officer n the office ands sat us down and total made him feel like he did something wrong. My son now goes to MALC and that school is thwe best in town!!

Coyote Canyon has an experienced principal who is very up-to-date with Reading First and other instructional programs. She is business-like and courteous, and always has a warm smile for children. There are lots of beginning teachers here and Dr. Stewart seems to know how to help them become better teachers.

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.
