This school is Well talk to meh . great a year ago they started making students do their work on laptops... It was a disaster, the computers never worked. The person who own's Rcb said that most of the students were quote "Bullshitting" about their laptops not working, when in all reality their router's were not working . If you going to be starting to make your students work on laptops don't you think you should have stuff planned out AHEAD of time .. I had to move schools because I never was able to work the computers were always I mean ALWAYS down ... And not to mention the councilor at RCB calls the students failures ... Yes, a lot of them may have failed in life and that's why they are now back In school to get thier life straight . Bad experience.

Though I have never been to this school, I believe it should be known that they are attempting to hire a new science teacher... via craigslist. Just thought it was weird, and that parents/students should know this

Strong leadership, friendly and professional staff. If you consider the area it is in; it would get 4 or 5 stars. I felt fairly safe there, also.

This school is great. It's small and fun and the best part is the everybody knows each other. It helps you graduate alot faster than any other normal school out there. If you are thinking about graduating quick, rcb is the school for you. Trust me you won't regret it!!!!!!!!

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.
