I recently graduated this school 3 months sooner than my graduation date. I attended TLI for 3 years, and all in all....it was an excellent school. Great teachers, Great administrators, and great elective credit classes. Including different classes of music and of art. With the support of one administrator...I am currently enrolled into college. =]

I am so gald I decided to come to the Learning Institute. Before coming I thought I would never have a chance to graduate high school, but all the wonderful teachers and staff helped me get the credits I needed to graduate.

My daughter had trouble with the redundancy of public school and was able to excell and boost her confidence here. She was able to move at her own speed and was given a chance to graduate in half the time it would have taken to go to high school in the normal public system.

There's great staff support. It is a safe and confortable learning environment. Students work well with the shortened hours.

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.
