One thing that I've learned, over the years, is that IF a child likes a school and likes and respects the staff.. they will learn; if they don't, they won't. I am so impressed with the basic caring shown by the MEMS administration and teachers. I like the nightly 'updates,' the special programs and the fact that the teachers appear to respect their students as individuals rather than numbers. Other schools may have a higher 'rating' but for an all-around institution that apparently seeks to foster self-esteem and character as well academics, MEMS is a five star.

If you want a high level education, be sure your child is accepted to Team 5, the GO team. Be sure to have TAG test information to be accepted.

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.
