Phenomenal school. Wonderful grounds, lots of shade, nice playgrounds. The teachers are incredible (and I haven't seen any turnover) as are the administrators! Love that they are traditional in nature, have uniforms, consistent behavioral standards across campus to keep the focus on the learning. Am so happy we chose Hohokam as our school. The kids love it here!

Congratulations to Hohokam for being named an "A" school. The students who attend Hohokam are truly receiving a first-rate education. The teachers and principal care about the success of each and every child. I wouldn't send my child to any other school.

My son has been going to Hohokam since Pre-K and has been excelling ever since. However reflecting back the past 8 weeks since he has started Kindagarten, he has progressed soo quickly. I am soo impressed, he is reading and writing and always comes home with a smile on his face. I dont understand why this school doesnt have a higher rating. Always clean,professional,friendly, I really cannot say enough about this school. Good work staff at Hohokam!!!

I have two children attending Hohokam and they absolutely love school. The Principal, Mr. Caudle, is always present on campus, interacting with the students and parents. Most mornings he is welcoming the students as they arrive at school. I have even seen Mr. Caudle at the crosswalks greeting students and helping them to school. The teachers are very dedicated and are always available to parents. The technology available at Hohokam is top of the line and each classroom is equipped with laptop computers as well as smartboards. Both of my children are excelling in their schoolwork and I am so proud to say they attend Hohokam Traditional School.

The technology in use at Hohokam is amazing. Students are engaged and being well prepared for the 21st century. Expectations for all students are high. Most importantly, however, is the caring staff and administration. It is obvious that everyone at Hohokam believes in the future of every child.

I am so pleased with the staff my children have been lucky to have, the wonderful office staff - go Ms. Perez and Ms. Edmundson, and administration! I love the opportunity to have our monthly coffee talk with Principal Caudle. I am a firm supporter of attending your neighborhood school and know ALL parents must be involved with their child's educational successes and challenges. Mr. Brown did an awesome job as the school's parent involvement president - we will miss his exciting meetings! If you live in the area, I HIGHLY recommend you enroll your student(s) at Hohokam.

I am so pleased with Hohokam! The Principal is an excellent leader. The Assistant Principal bring years of valuable experience. The front office staff could not be anymore helpful. The teachers are constantly raising the bar. I feel confident that in this case no child is left behind. Students that need help are immediately identified and brought up to speed by a special team. Great school and will get even better with time.

My daughter loves to go to school. The staff here makes her feel comfortable and happy. What else needs to be said. I hope they keep up the good work.

Hohokam school is a wonderful school. The Teachers and staff are terrific. Our two children are excelling at school. Mr. Caudle is always at the school and PTA events. That is so refreshing when so many schools in the area have principals who are not even available to talk to. We are very happy with th school and the community.

Outstanding School taking care of the kids of this neighborhood.


Posted September 30, 2007

We ve found Hohokam to be a wonderful school. The staff is caring and attentive to our daughter s needs and has been since we enrolled her in Kindergarten. Everyone is approachable and truly open to parental input. Our new principal Mr Caudle brings a strong sense of community to the school. We feel comfortable that she ll get not only a top-notch education, but that she ll be cared for and nurtured.

Hohokam is a school that is 100% concerned with each and every student that walks through their doors. Mr. Caudle, the new Principal goes out of is way to be make each student as well as staff members feel part of the Hohokam Community. Mr Craddock, the Vice-Principal is very understanding and encourages a positive environment. My daughters and I have been a part of the Hohokam Community for seven years. I strongly feel that my children have received an excellent education and a wonderful sense of morals.

The teachers at this school are highly dedicated and professional. They go out of their way to help all students and are extremely concerned with meeting the needs of the diverse student population. Chad Caudle shows a lot of promise as new principal in 2007. He will be a good fit for this excellent school.

The school has so much potential. The main problem is a stagnant staff which has been there to long. The PTA has been getting stronger since late 2005. Hopefully they will make a difference in 2006.

Hohokam. The school could be a good one if the staff learned how to encourage and give proper discipline to their students. Tammy and Art Moore

This is a great school. The principal & the teachers are very involved. My son was part of the music program & he learned so much. They also have alot of after school activities. If we weren't moving so far away I would have loved for my son to finish the 6th grade their. My son has always enjoyed going to this school & has never encountered any problems with other kids their. The parents involvement is definitely encouraged. We love the carnival & silent auction they have every year.

Teachers and staff were pretty nice. But felt a lot of the teaching was helping only the children that didn't speak english.

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.
