Posted March 3, 2013

I have been very pleased about the quality of education my daughter has been given. She is a gade K student at AHA. The only complaint I have and I hear from other parents is the lack of notifying of school events and times in an orderly fashion. Staying on top of Parent Council meetings and being involved in all aspects helps spread the word of activities going on at school. It does make it tough when you work tho. However, the school does its best to reach out with monthly flyers sent to you by email. BE SURE to check them because sometimes they leave out times, so you will want to ask!

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.
