My daughter has been attending the pre K program for 2 years now. I am very pleased with her outcome and the interaction she has with the teachers and children. She just loves school and that is a huge compliment for the teachers @ Sunridge. Her previous teachers have left but the helpers are still there and they make it easy to adjust to new teachers. Thanks Madilynn's Mom

Having had my kids here, I feel the teachers really try hard. The teachers work in a difficult situation and try really hard to help each child

The Pre-K program at Sunridge elementary is excellent.I have special needs children that attend the program and they are doing really well. My 5 year old Autistic child is doing so much better and my speech delayed child is talking more than ever now and they have only been attending since August 2005. So I thank the teachers, and aides for helping my kids. Lekesha Bennett

I was farely pleased with this school, my daughter only attended one year (kindergarted) the only thing I didn't like is not much arts and crafts or art classes, and they are always asking for parents to send stuff.

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.
