i graduated cvhs in 1995, the 4 years i had at cvhs were the best ever. so many lifelong freindships were made and life lessons were learned and i would recommend this smalltown school environment to anyone. at cvhs i never felt like just a student the teachers and staff made everyone feel like an idividual. love it there GO COWBOYS!!!!!!!!

I couldn't disagree more with the (below) positive review of Camp Verde High School - it has nothing to do with positive or negative attitudes. The senior class this year has more excellent students in it that can not get better than a C or D in the math courses because of the poor teaching skills of the educators themselves. And the administration continually refuses to resolve this crisis in their education. Students transfer here with A's and within a month get Cs because the teachers refuse to learn the proper way of solving basic math problems. How can our students be 'winners' and make the school look good if the administration won't take an interest in what is being taught (or in this case - not taught) in the classroom?

My two daughters have been enrolled in Camp Verde's school system since Kindergarden, 1991, one graduated May 2004, one in May 2005. One both graduates with positive balance of self and life that continues setting goals with knowledge of sacrifice, dedication and responsibility. Why, CV High is exactly what your CHILD and PARENTS make of it; Children learn self-control, real life structured with personal values from experience at CVHS and positive parental support turns negative blame and anger into positive approach and resolution. What hurts and harms can be a positive life-lesson BUT blaming the CVHS faculty on your kids problems is the PROBLEM! Parents teach their kids to blame others and personal involvement means quit & run. The parent raises an adult that learns in court & inability to take personal role in life. CVHS has equal good and bad, PARENT's choice!

Run away fast, very, very fast. Administration is incompetent, guidance non-existent and instuction vague and imcomplete. Teachers don't respond to telephone/e-mail requests. My child entered as an A student and left failing/behind grade level. There is no support system for kids with ADD or 504 plans. Just look at the web site! There are errors in spelling & grammar everywhere, assuming you can find links that work. Administration lied to me about state mandated accomodations concerning my child. Drug use is rampant in the school and with the kids in the area. Sports program is more important than anything else. No SAT prep offered (guidance didn't even know when/where the test was being administered. CVHS is a den of iniquity staffed by incompetents hoping for parents too busy to notice that it borders on the criminal. Run away! Run away very, very fast.

The administration of this district is beyond comprehension! My 'A' student was put in ISS (In School Suspension) because she was 30 seconds late when the bus forgot her and I had to drive her to school. This was the fifth time in a semester they left her on the side of the road! The math teacher cannot explain the homework he assigns while the Art teacher knows less than my student -- another waste of time! Students are given only 30 minutes for lunch so they cannot get to the cafeteria, wait in line with middle school students, eat and return to class before the bell rings. They have lost a record numbers of students this quarter - no wonder!

I have 2 of my children in this High School and I wish I would have pulled them out sooner, they do not let you know that your child is failing a class until just before a report card comes out and then it is too late. Sometime they don't even let you know at all. This is not good when your senior needs her credit's to gradurate this year. I have asked them to please don't wait until my kid is failing before I find out any thing. They don't get into trouble and there quit so is this the reason I never hear any thing.

About the tests

In 2013-2014 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.
