Milestones does a great job of truly individualizing a student's education.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 15, 2002

I have two boys that attend Milestones. I am very pleased with this school. My oldest son is finally being encouraged to exceed. The public school did not push him at all. He is doing GREAT and getting good grades and most of all he likes it there. He is having fun learning. My youngest is in Kindergarten and he is thriving on the love and attention he gets from Ms. Gloria, she is the best person for that job. She has the patience of a saint. signed.... very pleased parent!

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.
