In this educational institution I notice that quality just is not there, in any of the great school criteria listed below.

I have two children at Del Rio and they have been there since pre-K and now in 4th grade they excel and enjoy attending school. The staff and teachers are amazing! Top notch!

Del Rio is a wonderful school. My daughter is in first grade and had a wonderful kindergarden teacher and now 1st grade teacher. The teachers have been very upfront with us on what our daughter needs to improve on and also telling us what things that she has excelled on. She loves going to this school and we love taking her.

All three of my children attended Del Rio. The teachers are excellent, the grounds are beautiful (school gardern, landscape projects that students help design), and the leadership is exceptional. The academics are standards driven, so that the Arizona AIMS score are above average.

Del rio has a great preschool program. I had no problems at all. The staff was great and my son had a wonderful time and never once ask to stay home.

Wow! The only other parent comment was from one angry parent. That really is not what Del Rio is all about. All 4 of my kids went there, and then to the middle school. One is in high school now. I have been thrilled at the high level of education at all of the schools in Chino Valley. I am not familiar with Territorial Elementary, since my children did not attend that school. The principal at Del Rio is outstanding in every way. I know the teachers respect and like working for him. He is knowledgeable, kind, involved, and hardworking. He is the kind of principal you want your school district to hire. The secretarial staff is so friendly, and hardworking. Teachers are fabulous. It is an A+, and a National Blue Ribbon school. What is there not to like about Del Rio? I would highly recommend Del Rio to any parent of a child in Chino Valley. If not happy, then move your child to another school, or homeschool them. We should feel lucky to have such a great school in such a small community.

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.
