Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I like the Cambridge Curriculum which is why we put our son here. It helps to develop critical thinking and communication skills. You do need to be aware though that they grade on a yearly grade. If you move during the school year your child will not have a grade and may have to repeat coursework. The school is focused exclusively on the students entering university directly from high school and is very prejudicial against community college. They recruit quite heavily for the students to apply at ASU. They also do not seem to understand that not all of their students come from high income families. Students are allowed to take ASU (university) classes for credit their junior and senior years (if they qualify) but must pay full price . They are not allowed to take community college classes for high school credit. They charge $150/sport and do not allow you to apply that towards your Arizona Tax Credit. I'm giving them four stars because I do believe my son is receiving a good education. We would probably feel more comfortable in a school with a more diverse economic mix and one that understands that not everyone can afford to go directly to a four year university.

Excellent academic program with outstanding teachers who are very supportive. I only wish they had a music program; perhaps strings.
