Yes! All Rio Rico schools are testing torture chambers for students and teachers alike. If you send your child here, they will no longer be a person. They will be data. Prisoners have more joy and happiness in prison than students in Rio Rico schools have in school. As a teacher this makes me very sad.

The school is only concerned about passing their AIMS test and not about their students needs. I have asked for their support several times about concerns I've had with my children's education and they have made me feel like my son is just another student with learning problems.

The teachers are great but the classroom sizes are too big! They need to hire more great teachers and increase their pay. Funds are not being allocated appropriately.

My child is currently in fifth grade. He has been at San Cayetano since first grade. The dedication of the staff at this school is second to none. The staff are superbly intellectual and committed to our childrens growth academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. This school is top notch because of its staff.

I am very disapointed with SC. When bringing up concerns to staff about my sons education I felt they just got brushed under the rug with no regard. I am looking into enrolling him in a different school that will help him excel and develope stronger than he is able to at this school. He does love his class and his teacher but unfortunaitly that is just not enough.

The preschool is wonderful with very supportive staff. The elementary school, however, does not meet my children's academic and emotional needs. We are looking to enroll them elsewhere.

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.
