Check out this school's Employment page. Another mass exodus at the end of the school year. Link after link of open positions. The reason? The pay is great but the students are awful. They haven't figured out that they need to treat teachers with respect if they expect those teachers to stay beyond a year. Some of the administrators could stand to learn that lesson too.

This school is the complete embodiment of total apathy. The students don't care about anything school-related. Many don't even show up. Of the ones who do, you'll be lucky to get any work out of them. Sadly, they learn this behavior from their adult "role models." The unemployment rate in the community hovers around 36% while jobs for school janitors and bus drivers go unfilled. Hey - hard work is for suckers, right? The administration doesn't help teachers to combat this apathy, either. The admins stick their heads in the sand and ignore what's going on in the classrooms. They're so afraid of offending the local community that they refuse to enforce serious disciplinary consequences, even for the most outrageous offenses.

Do NOT work for this school. It changes administrators more often than you change your socks. Most of the students refuse to do any sort of schoolwork and the attendance rate hovers around 75%. This means that the average student takes a personal day every week. Offenses that would earn a long-term suspension or expulsion at any other school get a slap on the wrist at the revolving door that is Baboquivari, and the offender will be back in class before you know it. Expect that students will ignore you, defy you, and call you the foulest names imaginable. The pay is excellent, but "what does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul?"

If you value education, do not ever send a student here or work here. The admin doesn't have a clue about what happens in the classrooms and doesn't want to change anything that is broken about. The community also doesn't care about the school. Students do not show up for class and, even if they do, they rarely do work. They abuse the teachers and do any number of things on campus that would get kids kicked out or worse at other school. STAY AWAY!

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.
