Premier High School was a blessing for my daughter and my family. Not only was she able to graduate a few months early but she also got started on her community college education. The staff was caring and friendly and seemed to have a genuine interest in my child doing well not only in high school but as a successful adult. The only reason why I didn't give the school a five star rating is because I do feel that it lacks in student discipline.

This school looks great on paper, but has no discipline and no support from school administration. The availability of music, art, and other extracurricular activities is severly lacking. Many of the teachers do care about the kids however they are powerless when it comes to helping them because [of] the administration.

This school is great for your child to go to. They have so much to offer your child. Everything you want for you child is right here. If you want hte best for your child you need to give Premier a call (ASAP) Air Academy as well. These are the best schools I've heard of but make sure you give them a call!

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.
