As a grandparent, who often helps with my three grandkids--all students at Parks, I am impressed with the staff and students in the Parks school. They offer the students a lot, including art and music, 6th grade camp at Camp Colton, laptops for the older students, etc. This seems to be the best place for my grandchildren.

the constant gossiping between staff members and lack of attentiveness is causing my children to regress. they started off so well and now their grades are going right back to "needs improvement" when they arent mentally challenged they get bored and lose interest. i am not pleased or impressed at all

Below average school. Better than Williams school district, less violence, but you can get a much higher quality education for your children in a Flagstaff school. Do not move out here for just for the education, not worth it. Some good teachers, most not so good. Teachers have no good leadership. No motivation to excell, no pride in teaching. School as a whole has potential to be great, but no motivation.

The Administration at Maine Consolidated surpresses the ability for students to progress. The fighting and bickering between the staff is very offesive. If you don't grow up there you are not very well accepted. It was a terrible experience for my children.

I have 4 children, 2 of which have 'graduated' from Maine Consolidated, after going through K-6, and K-8th grades there. I like this school because the teachers are very attentive, classrooms are small, and parent participation is quite high. The staff is also amazing to deal with, and usually know the students by name.

I love this school! Putting my two children into this school was the best decision I ever made! My son stated at Maine in Kindergarten in the middle of the school year. He struggled at a school he was attending in Flagstaff and the teachers at Maine immediately helped us iddentify that my son had special needs.As my 1st child, I didn't know he was developing differently than other children his age. The teachers helped me and my son and he is in 2nd grade as does have special needs. They have a fantastic program for special needs and he is in a regular classroon! His teachers up until now have put extra time and effort in keeping him up to grade level in all subjects! My daugter, now in PreK, is learning great things there! Even sign Language!

Maine School is awesome! My daughter has been there since kindergarten and is now in 6th grade. It's a small community school. Everyone knows one another and the kids are respectful and supportive of one another. No school or student is perfect, however, I have personally seen 'troubled' students turn themselves around due to the school environment they are in. They struggle with extra curricular activities but have an excellent staff who really care about their students. My daughter will miss the school next year when she comes to Flagstaff for Middle School. She's leaving not because Middle School in Parks is substandard but because she will have more opportunities in a larger school and it will make the transition to High School that much easier.

Maine school is a small school, about 90 kids total from k-6. Classes are small and the kids get much individual attention from teachers. Dr Martinez, the principal is excellent! Kids are rewarded for 'good behavior', and held accountable for actions when inappropriate. Character counts is pro active; respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship are instilled in everyday school. There is huge community participation and support for the school. Only needs more extra curricular school activities.

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.
