I am a teacher at this school. Plus I have a 4th grader at this school also. Our school has a great principal and caring staff members. Teachers strive to have each child excel in all academic areas on a daily basis. Every year things are changed/modified to help reach even more students the year after. It's a great school!

KAOL is a first class Public Charter School district (K-12) w/ everything a parent could want for their children. And they strive to improve upon that daily, monthly, & annually. There are many educational choices in this area. A Public K-12 District, A Public K-12 Charter District (KAOL Intermediate is but 1 of 4 schools that should be listed instead of just 2- Primary(K-2), Intermediate(3-5), Middle(6-8), and High(9-12), & Many Private, Private Religious, and other Home School school options. In my personal opinion this is the best choice in this areas and many other areas. First rate academic programs, highly improving on the availability of extracurricular activities, music, art, & sports programs all the time. Level of parent involvement is required by annual contract between District and parents as a requirement of it's charter (parents are ALWAYS welcome on school grounds and in classes anytime school is in session, before, during, and after).

The Academy has such a great environment for students to learn and grow in. There are few behavior problems, and the uniforms make sure that no one is separated by what they wear. The teachers and students are great.

The teachers and parents are both dedicated to the children. Parents are welcomed and encourage to come to school and to class or drop in and spend some time any day of the week. Thank you to the students and caring staff at KAOL!

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.
