My wife and I love this school. The class sizes are small and the teachers really care about my child's education. My daughter has been going to this school for two years now and really enjoys the atmosphere. I was blown away when my child was home for winter break and started complaining that she missed going to school.

This is a great school, small class sizes, personal attention and an economic focus. In this day and age this is priceless! My son has attended this school for 4 years now and absolutely loves it! He has gone from being the top kid in class to being challenged as there are many "Star" students now, and believe me, it's wonderful to have him challenged. He works harder, learns more and feels very comfortable here. The teachers take a real interest in the students and parents.

This school took the time to listen to my concerns about my daughters education;put them to rest with taking time to work with her and see where she needed help. They have a truly caring staff in all areas. They provide a safe after school program thats extremely flexable VERY low cost. Aswell your fully informed everyday/wk of everything going on there. My daughter never complains about going to school any more. Infact shes excited to go and I no longer have concerns about her failing. A+

My child went to ESC Phoenix last year. She had a wonderful teacher for second grade. The students are well behaved. The school work is good. I also liked the student led businesses. This is a great school.

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.

Schools are identified as Excelling, Highly Performing, Performing Plus, Performing, Underperforming, Failing to Meet Academic Standards or Pending.
