A great school all around the faculty is helpful and really cares about the students and their success. Gives Gila River youth a second chance when nobody else will and makes them work to reach their full potential.

This school helps students with different needs and gives them a second chance. If you think this school deserves anything less than a four star rating youre not paying attention

This school has a very small facility and very little flexibility to accomodate students need and personalities. The teaching staff seems to be overburdened by the small number of students. My child will not return to this school. One month is too much!

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.

For high schools, AIMS results, AYP status and graduation/dropout rates are used. Schools are identified as Excelling, Highly Performing, Performing Plus, Performing, Underperforming, Failing to Meet Academic Standards or Pending.
