Amazing teachers! They are so involved with the kids. I highly recommend this school. Small classes with great achievement.

I recently enrolled my child in the 4th grade Morristown elementary school, removing her from Nadaburg elementary. What a difference I see in my child's behavior, attitude and grades! Best thing I could ever have done! The entire school staff is friendly, calm and very competent. The academic program is excellent. Many after school activities for all ages and interests, offering bus service to all school bus stops after activities. I really love Morristown Elementary School-you will, too!

Morristown School is looking at information generated by student assessments in a new way that is sure to enable us to help every child grow individually as a scholar. Teachers are developing individual goal planning along with strategies for accomplishing those academic goals as we work with students this school year. I love that we are small enough to look at each child as an individual with unique strengths and weaknesses.

I have been very impressed with the afterschool activities my child can participate in. He is not into violin, but he could learn it if he wanted to. The school just started a STEM Club and he is excited about that. I enjoy being able to look at my child's grades on-line.

I happen to be one of the parents who drive past other schools so that my children can attend Morristown school. We pulled our children from Desert Oasis (part of the Nadaburg district). We couldn't be more pleased with the small class sizes, attentive staff and overall happiness of our children since enrolling them 3 years ago. Prior to attending Morristown my children were falling well below state standards in AIMS tests now they are scoring well above!

Morristown school is amazing you could not ask for better.It's small and the teachers are able to give students the one on one attention they need.I know several parents that drive past several other schools just so their children can go to Morristown .The faculty is friendly and down to earth and go above and beyond to work with parents and students.

I have 4 kids attending Morristown and I am completely satisfied with this school in every way! The class sizes are very small and I feel that my children receive more attention and a better education. Everyone who works at the school is very friendly and it is like a big family. I know my children are getting a great education and are in a very safe environment.

This was our first year at Morristown and I must admit I love the small setting! The entire staff is friendly and accessible. My children learned as much here as they did in the larger district we came from, except with a lot less behavior issues, smaller class sizes, better relationships, and more field trips!!

I recently pulled my children from Nadaburg and placed them here. I already see a huge difference. The teachers make themselves available to speak with everyday. The academic program is better. My kids are happy & safe again and that is what counts to me.

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.
