I like this online school because It helps me to finish my classes faster. The teachers are nice to us, helpful and friendly. You can do your school even on Saturday and Sunday if you want. Hope High School online is helping me to move ahead with my education.

It's amazing, you have your own schedule and focus on yourself and schooling. Also the teachers are so great and the classes are easy.

Hope High School is a smaller school focused on the needs of each student and success for all students who commit to meeting their goals. It is fully accredited by AdvancEd. Students are mentored by caring adults. The principal is a strong instructional leader with expertise in curriculum planning and development with a focus on the Common Core standards. She often interviews students upon their entering school to be sure they are willing to do the work necessary. Not only do students have good teachers in the classroom, but they can increase their skills with interactive software programs. As a school board member, I am always impressed by the graduates each spring. This past spring more students graduated than ever before in the school's 10 year history.

As a parent and a community member serving with the AmeriCorps I view Hope High School as an innovator in educating today's students. Their principal is extremely knowledgeable and a great leader to her team of teachers. The school counselor is caring and very active in assessing students goals for the future and assisting them in preparing to meet those goals. Their service learning class last year was amazing and a creative way to teach students not just about serving their community but it also incorporated the common core subjects as well. Hope High School also has highly skilled volunteers ( that tutor and mentor )acquired from community partnerships with two top ranking universities in Phoenix. Any student looking for a non-traditional way to complete their high school education will most likely find this school will not only meet but exceed their expectations.

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.

For elementary and middle schools, the profiles are based on current and historical aggregated AIMS results, MAP results and whether or not the school made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). For high schools, AIMS results, AYP status and graduation/dropout rates are used. Schools are identified as Excelling, Highly Performing, Performing Plus, Performing, Underperforming, Failing to Meet Academic Standards or Pending.
