I find it disturbing that this school would graduate a 5th grader to the 6th grade without the student being able to read on a 1st grade level

I have a student in this school and have seen no effort from the the staff to improve the students or thier grades. All I've seen is is the effort to get a check and nothing else. Even have reason to think some teachers do work over seveal times just to hide the fact that they are not accually learning what they are supposed to be!( the only effort I've seen is from the V.P.)

I found this school to be a big disappointment and the teacher and principal apathetic. My son was not given any type of remediation after he flunked several math tests.

My son has attended two different elementary school. This school has been a disapointment. There is no communication between school and home, it like the saying 'what happens at school stays at school' When my son was put in detention for a week, I was not notified by the school in anyway! My son, confessed. There has been a big problem with disaplin on the bus and my son begs me to pick him up from school because he's tired of the swearing and 'mean' bus driver. I have also had no real communication with the teacher and no interaction with my sons classmates. There is no parent volunteer sheet for holidays or even regular reading with those that need help and the excuse I get is always, 'We're trying something new this year, it's different for all of us.' There is no homework or home reading program.

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.
