This school is not of good quality. The teachers are underqualified, the administration disorganized, and the extracurriculer activities are limited!

This school is fantastic, The students are well behaved and for the most part the teachers are pretty good. Although i would be pickey about my child's teacher for earth science. But other than that the school is great. They also have a wonderful sports program!!!

I went to Queen Creek my senior year. It was the best school I went to. Then actually helped me with my learning disabilty that I have and took the time to teach me what I needed to learn. The school I came from was just pushing me threw school and told me I didn't need help because I was just lazy. With that I would like to thank the teacher and faculty for the help they gave me. Along with that, the students are nice. It was a really big school compared to what I was use to, but I meet a lot of new people. Some I still talk to.

Queen Creek High School has extrememly caring teachers and administrators. It is a wonderful school; safe, scholarly, and full of opportunities for students to become involved. I highly recommend this school.

This school puts more emphasis on dicipline instead education and to educate is what we pay them for. I personally want my money back. You never receive a call if his or hers grades are falling but you are immediately called if there is trouble. They push the children through so they don't have to deal with them. This is the worst school I have ever seen. They are no help to the parents that try to help there children suceed. Do yourself a favor, don't send you children to Queen Creek schools period. Worthless

Honestly this is the worst school that I've ever been to. I hate it here, the food is old and nasty. The teachers barely help, and don't seem to care if you fail. I downon't reccomend this school.

I used to go to school at Queen Creek High. I just recently graduated in 2006. It was a fun and educational environment . I really miss being a student there. I not only miss my friends and the fun times we had, but I also miss the teachers; if it wasnt for them, I wouldn't have a great job and life today. Thank you Queen Creek High

i personally think that the administration is very friendly and try to solve problems as best they can except for the principal. but all around if you can find the right friends and meet the right teachers QCH is an amazing school.

We are very disappointed with QCHS's academic program. Teachers seem to be satisfied with C's when our son is capable of A's and B's. Very poor communication in this high tech world. No effort to communicate with parents. Would not recommend this school for anyone with a child that needs a little push for better performance.

I have been very pleased with this High School. My daughter does not do well in school and the teachers have been fantastic about keeping in touch with me and keeping me up to date on her assignments and which ones she is missing.

Mr. Fred Clare is an exceptional math teacher. He avails himself before school and sometimes afterschool to help students in need of tutoring. My child has been able to grasp difficult math concepts because this teacher takes the time to explain 'one on one' in his tutoring sessions. He's able to take an average math student and bring that students understanding of math to a higher level.

Not very organized. Too many students had to hire additional teachers after school started rearranging our childs schedule. Not very informative either. Poor school!

I have two children in QC High and I give this school a poor rating. My kids struggle with math. The tutor available is absolutely no help and has never helped to increase the kid's grades. They have switched my kids out of math and english classes (different teachers) 3 times during one year. Their belief is that they are helping the student when in actuality this has lowered their grades even further. Parents with kids in this school that I know have kids who struggle with the same subject.

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.
