Naco Elementary needs not just a music program but also an art program. There is so much emphasis on passing the aims tests that we are forgetting to make school also enjoyable!

We already have the finest academic school there is, but if we had music and choir as well, this would make it even finer. It would also be nice if we had more parents involved with their children(they do not know what they are missing)!

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.
