This School has alot of programs where I was able to get involve. All the teachers I had were always supported into everything I decided to do. My counselor was great and always cheer me up and never let myself give up. My high school experience was so amazing that I am so glad I attended this high school because now I have a chance of going to Arizona State University, and with a full ride scholarship.

As a former student who gratuated from this school, I can honestly say my experience differed each year. I would say it was normal due to it being high school, but overall it was a marvelous journey; from meeting new people, building relationships to crying through our adues at graduation. Being envolved was one thing I do not regret. Getting into clubs and/sports was very easy, all you had to do is be doing good in your classes. I gained many skills that will last forever including leadership. I was also awarded a scholarship from the school which helped me tremendously for college. Now I can really say I am a successful former college student who graduated from this school and currently at Arizona State University.

My daughter just started her Junior year at Romero and I am very disappointed. She has had great teachers the last 2 years and now all of her support system is gone. For some reason most of the teacher's are no longer there. It seems that turnover is very high and it creates a lot of inconsistency.

This school has severe leadership and administrative issues. Teacher turnover is an extreme problem; 5 highly qualified teachers who had been at the school for 4 years let go with no explanation or reason, leading to a student walk-out. Administration has had 3 principals in three years...leadership cares about own money versus student achievement.

Vicki A. Romero provides a friendly atmosphere for its students unlike many big high schools. Individuals are recognized for their accomplishments instead of the school. Students graduating from the high school can use a local scholarship to go to college.

Exciting, state of the art, student and teacher involvement...if a student wants to work hard...the sky is the limit.

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.

Schools are identified as Excelling, Highly Performing, Performing Plus, Performing, Underperforming, Failing to Meet Academic Standards or Pending.
