Glenview College Preparatory High School is a wonderful school. This year (2013-2014 school year) is the first year it is open, and I am very glad the staff of the school are there to make it the experience it is. At my last High School I had some problematic experiences, but the students and staff here are very understanding and would never cause such problems. There is very little gossip here which makes the school so much better as well. Not only that, but the teachers, unlike at other schools, are actually willing to work with us when we don't understand something. At other schools teachers may just throw work at their students and not care about help them, but here they put in effort to make sure we pass the class, and state-tests such as AIMS or PARCC.

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.
