Wilson is a great school, the teachers are dedicated and many are at the school because they care, it is not just a job and you can see it by the way they teach.

This school excels in working with students to help them succeed at their highest level. Set in the middle of a housing community, the school has a comfortable atmosphere and mood. The children feel comfortable attending and many walk from their homes down the street. The school is, overall, one of the best educating tools for the elementary school level.

Great technology! Wilson has a computer at each student desk in every classroom. Students also use higher order thinking while working in an advanced tech lab.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
