Posted June 30, 2011

Because I have always been taught that it is good to learn new things, that life, learning is different. That children are always a reflection of who you are as a person and they always learn from us, both good and bad. That we as parents are the ones who guide them through life, to teach values, respect, to take their own desicion and everything. Deven who educate for someone important in our society, which will develop as adults. And they will one day be parents and likewise will have to guide their children. The Parent Academy is a program that supports parents to be better parents and people understand the position of children and parents. Children are the most valuable thing we have and we will always want the best life for them. And being the most valuable thing we have, we must envelop them in our lives and be part of their development, support them and not criticize them, lift them when they fall and give them a nudge to go forward, and that a fall does not mean a defeat but a learning experience, to get up and fight for what they want and all that it may intend to achieve with perseverance and effort. And MANY THANKS TO THE DISTRICT OF OSBORN.

Our daughter attends kindergarten at Longview (Mr. L's class). She loves her class activities, her homework, her friends and her teachers. She is thriving! Although this is a large class of 30 students Mr. L and his full time assistant Ms. M do a wonderful job of educating and caring for our child.

i think this years test scores were poor. I thought they would be much better seeing how much the school did to get the kids ready this year. I think maybe they need to get started earlier.

Dr. J, the new principal, get high marks from me for involvement and a sincere effort to improve the environment for students. Several teachers and staff make the effort to sponsor sports and other extracurricular events. However, I am concerned with overall low academic performance and a lack of structured, district-supported enrichment activities - music programs, sports, art.

I have had a child in dual language for two years and it has been an incredible experience with highly motivated teachers. The range of supports for families, the dedication of the principal and the extra-curricular activities are a model for what schools should be - a learning center for the community.


Posted April 7, 2003

The teachers and office staff are exceptional. I always feel welcome. The office knows you by name which makes me feel so welcome. The teachers really care about our children.


Posted April 2, 2003

Great Principal she really cares about our children. Wonderful hard working teachers that care.Great programs (Dental Clinic,Cloth A Child).Very informative and careing nurse. Office staff is ok.


Posted October 15, 2002

I believe that parents make a school, because without parent support and discipline, students lack the skills taught to them. We must help the school that teaches our children, and the community.


Posted October 15, 2002

This can be a tough school because many of the students come from difficult family situations. In spite of this, everyone on staff gives their students 100+% effort. Many teachers put in 10-12 hour days working to give a chance at a better life to their kids. God bless all of them!

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.
