This school was a huge dissappoinment to me. My kids have gone here all their lives, and we put up with alot of things over the years. It has no accelerated honors program. huge teacher turn over/always changing teachers. There is no sports program or incentives for the students. No I would not reccomend this school to anyone.

My Child went to this school from the day it opened, I gave it a chance and thought it would improve, however I again was disappointed at the way the school is being ran and have removed my child and now to find out that he has not learned what I was told he had. Also there are many safety issues at this school where students are not properly being protected. I would not recommend this school to any parent who cares about their childs education.

The McDowell campus is very poorly ran, but the teachers are great and strive to help students acheive their best.

I had a student at Omega. I took him out after two weeks. My experience was very disappointing. The staff, administration, and even the classrooms were not the quality that was sold to me when I started looking into the school.

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.

For elementary and middle schools, the profiles are based on current and historical aggregated AIMS results, MAP results and whether or not the school made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). For high schools, AIMS results, AYP status and graduation/dropout rates are used. Schools are identified as Excelling, Highly Performing, Performing Plus, Performing, Underperforming, Failing to Meet Academic Standards or Pending.
