How sad. A school with such great potential to make a change in the lives of people has turned out been drug down to the lowest level of moral and educational standards possible by ethically bankrupt people. Yes, the students have had struggles, but no they don't deserve to be subjected to counselors who make fun of them and their parents and teachers who just don't care.

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.
