Yes there have been many problems with the school in the past, now that they have changed staff, and St. Board of Educ. has taken over, it is great. My son was one of those that had taken classes that were not needed to graduate,and did not get his diploma. He had to go back and retake classes and stay another year. He is now learning what those that already graduated did not. I thank God that they sent in people who cared about his education and not being his best friend.

Staff is constantly changing, and with it kids are being jerked around. It recently came to our attention that the school didn't even know what the graduation requirements were. Child was given classes that were not needed to graduate. We pulled him out

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.
