school is tremendous...staff is willing to help and go out of their way to get a child to achieve their goals. They prepare each student to be ready for the AIMS testing. which today is something that each child had to pass. great Reading and math tutoring program.

I love how they work with both of my boys. Their after school tutoring and their Friday tutoring. And teachers will take time out to do one on one tutoring from time to time. Scores for AIMS have been awesome. So that in itself shows the school is teaching the curriculum that is recommended by the State. The staff from administration down to the bus drivers and custodian are always nice and considerate to our kids.

Destiny has an enceptional staff that works hard to make my children feel welcome and safe. The teachers are dedicated and make the learning fun. My children enjoy school and feel good about themselves... not characteristics of their former learning experiences. Thank you Destiny you are an asset to our community.

I would just like to say what a great school Destiny is. My two children have been attending for the past two years and have each had great teachers that have taught them so much throught the school year. I would also like to say that the office staff is always such a help and I know if I have concerns that I will be listened to. The Title 5, I believe, has been such a success for my 1st grader. My 5th grader has learned the value of money and the value of leadership through her class. I commend their teachers, past and present, for their work with my children. My children would much rather come to Destiny than go to the local public school and I agree with them.

I enrolled my kids in Destiny because I was told that it was much more structured and safer than the local public schools. I have no problems with the EDUCATION that my children receive at Destiny. What I DO have a problem with is the constant bullying they receive from other students with almost nothing done by the principal or teachers. I, as well as my children, have gone to the principal and teachers for help with the problem and nothing happens. The offending child is placed in a sort of in school suspension and once they return to the regular population the abuse continues. I fear for my childs safety! If you are a concerned and contientious parent such as myself please reconsider before enrolling your child in this school if you truly want them to have a safe and healthy learning environment.

My child is a voracious reader thanks to Destiny School!

I have been so pleased with my daughter's education at Destiny. It is nice to see the teachers happy and smiling; actually wanting to teach. I have two other children in public schools and I just cringe every time I have to deal with those other schools. No one looks happy and it is next to impossible to get answers when I call or email. The staff at Destiny genuinely care about my child. She was only 4 years old when she started there and I was nervous to put her in a charter school (not knowing anything about them). It was the best thing I could have ever done for her.

I am taking my child out of this school due to the lack of supervision/safety at the school and on the school bus. Follow through by the administrator is poor at best from what I have seen.

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.
