Have you ever walked into a place and felt so good, that you say to yourself 'Wow'? That's the feeling you get the minute you step into this wonderful campus. Everybody from the Principal down are just wonderful. The quality of the programs is great, my son is reading above grade level, and he loves it! The offer music, art, computers and many extracurricular activities. The opportunities for parents to get involved are available throuhgout the year, including school- and district-initiated activities like Parent University, Booster Club, Legislative Committee, etc. I would recommend this school to anybody.

There are some wonderful things going on at Cordova Primary School. The teachers work well together to ensure that all children feel loved and are safe, meanwhile getting a good education. It is an excellent school.

Glad to see a new principal coming. This is a school within a school and I'm sick of having different rules between the 2 schools and making things confusing for parents with kids under both principals. Maybe this principal will work With the middle school principal to make families feel like its 1 school, not 2. It's all on the same campus so why can't you do things together?

I'm very excited to have my children at Cordova Primary. The teachers are caring and very interested in helping the children learn. This is a no nonsense school where academics are stressed and implemented in a fun environment.

All the teachers at Cordova Primary are the greatest. They all look out and care for all the children. My children love and know all the teachers.

About the tests

In 2013-2014 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.

About the tests

Arizona uses AZ LEARNS Achievement Profiles to indicate schools' overall performance each year. 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.
