The PTC has helped me get back on track. The teachers take the time to teach us quality work AND they can give us more individual attention. They give us room to be ourselves, and understand where we come from. They get to know us as a person, not just a student! For anyone looking for a 2nd chance to turn yourself around, the PTC is the place for you!!!

If you have a special needs student, this is NOT the school for them. Most of the teaching staff, especially, the lead teacher, lack understaning and compasion for the students. My student was yelled at, used to wash staff vehicles and critized by staff. I guestion if any of these teachers have had any training in dealing with special needs students. When we asked for meeting with the staff, more time was spent covering for each other, then getting to the root of the problem.

I can only say great things about this school! If it were not for the Principal, Teachers & all the staff there my Grand daughter would not have graduated on time, period! After starting there she got with the program & did very well. There was quite a bit more attention to every student there from the staff & a more positive thought process given to the students. They are not treated like a number & a desk here, they are valuable kids who need a little help & a positive & helpful school staff to help them see their way thru! There should be more schools like this one for all children. This is the way of the future where kids learn in a better way & come out stronger to begin their journey thru life. Parent involvement is encouraged & welcomed here, all the staff are great people too! Thanks!

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.
