Posted April 28, 2010

I went to this school from 2004-2006. I can say this was the best school I ever went too. The small classroom sizes give a very relaxed atmosphere. Like Ricara said, Dr. Siner is amazing. He is like that cool uncle and the responsible father figure a lot of students need. I mean, he rides his Harley to work and has conferences with parents everyday! The teachers genuinely care for the students. The teachers I had (Deborah, Jeff, and Ken) were all there since the beginning. Lionel (the resident do-it-all staffer) has also been there since the beginning as well. I think that says a lot if the teachers at a 'bad' school want to be there for over 20 years.

This school has a difficult job of teaching students who are typically behavior problems and not really interested in school. The teachers really seem to care about the students and the office and principals work to help kids get credit and go back to their home schools. I don't know what we'd do without an alternative school that helps this kind of student.

This school is actually pretty good considering that it is an Alternative high school. there are hardly bad activities that are perfomed by students and teachers. the teachers are really helpful and offer any if not all oppertunities to students being enrolled or those of which are already. Giving an overall grade average for the staff especailly Pat the school principal would have to be a A. A girl who goes to mesa vista, i give kudos to the staff in helping myself change and improve my behavior, education, and ways of thinking. I just cant Thank You enough, you people are truelly making miracles happen!

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.
