While, i might agree with some of the latest comments about the director/faculty--tell me what school doesn't have problems? Maybe the reason you know about 'problems' at the school is because they do encourage parent participation. As a parent of a child with special needs and two without special needs, I can assure you that my children are receiving the best education available for free. They have a fabulous PTN, and yes, they recently had a turnover of chairperson, but alot of the chairpeople from last year moved on the junior highs. And maybe the front office does say they have a waiting list, that should say alot about a school--they have a waiting list. Way to go Eduprize--keep up the great work!!!

There is a serious lack of communication at this school. As a member of the Eduprize community, I have witnessed the Director degrade the faculty and other staff. Morale at an all-time low. Our teacher, gratefully, is dedicated to our child's learning and growth. That has been a positive. The Parent Teacher Network has also been through turnover, which has been questionable. Overall good concept for a school, but have some concerns.

It isn't the best school in the world, but it isn't the worst. Don't expect miracles unless you plan to make them happen by yourself. The school is probably marginally better than Coolidge District, but that is hardly an endorsement. The office staff and some teachers are a bit snotty and answer any complaints with the comment 'Well, we have a waiting list.' The biggest benefit of attending this school is the group of well-meaning parents who really give their all to help the school. The school needs to take note of this fact, or it will lose its backing and its appeal all in one fell swoop. You may have a wait-list now, but continue letting your office staff/others treat the parents with disdain and you will find out rather quickly what the phrase 'easy come, easy go' really means.

This school is a breath of fresh air in our community. My kids are getting a private-school quality education with many hands on learning experiences. Wonderful principal, Mrs. Fox. She is visible and accessable. Overall friendly staff with exception of one head aide who has barked at me and other confused parents at parent drop-off/pick-up traffic lanes. Quality learning environment and family-friendly. They encourage parent-involvement which is assuring. The cottages and fairs are also delightful! Two thumbs up for eduprize!

I cannot say enough good things about this school. My son started here last year in first grade and has continued into second grade with the same teacher. I love the cottages and they really get the children thinking. Walking through the halls, you will notice that most of the teachers posses a Master's degree! Most charter schools don't even require a bachelor's degree, yet this school has attracted teachers well beyond this level. It set a great example for the children and speaks volumes of the school. If you live in this area and your child is attending a local school, shame on you!

My daughter spend Kindergarten and 1st grade at the local schools...we were SO disappointed in the environment and staff that we were ready to move. Thank goodness for Edu-Prize. I don't want to leave Queen Creek now because I love this school. The Coolidge and Florence school districts could learn a LOT from this school. Maybe now they will get their act together.

Absolutely wonderful school! We are so lucky to have it out here. I too was fed up with the local school districts, and my kids were bored with them. With the eduprize system they are busy learning all day, if they are done early the teacher moves that child ahead to another task. My kids are coming home gitty everyday and full of information to share with us. The TOPS Program is a great idea! I can not say enough good things about this school!!!! Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous!!!!!

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.
