I have 3 children that attend Maryland and they have loved it compared to the school they attended in West Phoenix. The teachers are very nice and smile when you come in the classroom. I hope to have them there through Middle school.

I was surprised to see this school in the bottom 10% of the nation. I would like to see music, art and PE taken more seriously, given more structure as it develops math mentally. I am pleased with my son's teacher this year, but I fear for his education in the long run.

Not a great school but not a bad school either. Children are safe and feel cared for. Could use more homework (3rd grade).

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.
