I believe you underrate the 'Parent Involvement' at Ombudsman Charter School Northwest Campus. There are plenty of opportunities to be involved in my child's education at Ombudsman, but it is up to me to make the choice to be involved and to stay involved. My daughter has excelled in this learning environment, is completely doing mainstream work at a pace that is comfortable for her, and is also able to do grade level math. In mainstream public school her behaviors were so disruptive and the teachers had so many students per class that she could not get the much needed direction and assistance that would ensure her educational success. I highly recommend Ombudsman as an alternative to Public School.

I attended this school for two years, my Junior and Senior years. I had all but given up on high school. I was bored with both public schools in my district. I ended up loving Ombudsman so much that I took two city busses to get there each day! Great for slow and fast learners. I suggest it for everyone that has a hard time conforming to standard high school.

This school is horrible. I pulled both my daughters out. I have been waiting 6 months for their school records and transcripts to be sent to their new school.

I am not a parent but an actual student at Ombudsman. When I first attended Ombudsman I was in my second year of High school but unfortunately only had 6 credits. I have attended Ombudsman for one year and have already completed my sophmore, junior and half on my senior year. With out Ombudsman I dont think I could of graduated on time, Now that I have attended Ombudsman I am graduating early. Special thanks to Mr. Paterson Ombudsman NorthWest. He made learning Interesting and made it more promising to do the best I could.

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.
