My son has attended this school and daycare for 5 years... for good reason. All of the staff actually care about each and every child. Teachers go above and beyond to make it a wonderful learning atmosphere, and the Principal is absolutely WONDERFUL! The front administrative staff is amazing in their own aspect, always willing to do what they can to help keep every child on track. 5 star school!!

My children have been attending All Aboard Charter for two years. The teachers are excellent with my children. They have given my child more challenging work when needed, and have also caught when they start to fall behind right away so that we can prevent any lapses in their learning. My children are excelling with the one on one attention that they are able to get by being at All Aboard instead of a traditional school.

My children have been attending and all I can say is that the teachers care about where the kids are and what they need to learn to the best of their ability.

This school is a great alternative to public school. Small classrooms allow for individual attention. The teachers and staff are extremely friendly. I feel that my child is in a safe environment here as well. This school is a best kept secret!

My son has attended this school for 3 years. The teachers are dedicated, and provide individualized attention. They work one on one with the children reguardless of their ability. They keep in constant contact with the parents reguarding the childs sucess or problems.

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.
