Nogales High School has provided my child with an excellent education. Excellent IB Program, a lot of support for extra-curricular actiivies as well as caring staff.

Kids here are unruly. Administration is clueless and inexperienced. No respect for teachers and I just feel sorry for the kids that accually want to learn. Classes are around 40 students.

The International Baccalaureate program is available as well as two to three semesters of calculus. The quality of instruction is average for a public school (with of course a few great teachers). The administration is terrible and bureaucratic, but that is also to be expected, although it can get in the way of the educational experience. For a good student with involved parents, this school would be fine.

i am very disappointed to see that the children at this high school for math and reading have scored lower than 40%! the fact that teachers decide whether or not they will intiate any sort of relatioship with students based on money and last names shows the true politics of the school. i would like for the principal to explain how is it possible that out of a student population with over 95% being of hispanic origin and almost 85% being able to fluently speak spanish, how the language arts (i.e spanish, french, and english) results came out below 30%.

The most outstanding feature of Nogales High School is their Senior Project. The Senior Project is a graduation requirement for All students. In the Senior Project the students write a research paper on a topic of their own choice, then apply the paper in a 20-hour hands-on project, document the application in a portfolio then give speech to a board of community members and teachers. I like that my son, a freshman, is thinking about his senior year challenge. I m glad too that he will have a significant challenge in the spring semester of his senior year. Mostly I like that because the Senior Project is an exhibition of skills, it shows the side of the students that AIMS can t.

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.

For high schools, AIMS results, AYP status and graduation/dropout rates are used. Schools are identified as Excelling, Highly Performing, Performing Plus, Performing, Underperforming, Failing to Meet Academic Standards or Pending.
