Best school! The principal cares about the children and the principal's philosophy is " ALL ABOUT THE STUDENTS" This school has come a long way. Teachers work very hard and the test scores keep growing every year!

The teachers at Fowler are great. At Fowler the children come first. Fowler only has grades 3-5 so the falculty is geered toward that age group. My daughter did very well while she was at Fowler, not only were her grades high but she liked going to go to school. She is a very bright young lady and loves to learn. At Fowler the teachers make learning fun. They go on field several field trips. They incourage involvement and feedback from the parents. This is a wonderful school.

The higher the grade level (6-8) there is very little parent participation.They are working very hard to improve the schools and they are growing very fast. They plan to open 2 new schools in the 2004 school year 1 K-5, 1Middle School(6-8) thanks

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.
