My son is 4 years old & he started going to preschool here in Carmichael when he turned 3. He's in the peer program (not special ed program). Even though he's advance, he doesn't get bored or loose interest because his teachers Ms. Bonnie & Ms. Annie provide something new to learn for the kids. Both the special ed program kids & the peer program kids have their own goal to achieve in learning, and the teachers together with special therapist (speech & occupational therapist) help one another in providing a high quality of education to the kids even if it is only 2 hrs a day. The time constraint is not issue because the teachers & staff are the best...

This school seems to exceed all expectations. I have yet to meet a teacher there that does not go above and beyond for their students. The Reading curriculum has been modified so that it is individualized for each student so if they are behind they can catch up or if they excel they can. Smart boards are in every class. There are two brand new computer labs for the students. The principal is very involved with all the classrooms. They send some older students to a leadership conference in D.C. Plus there is a free after school program with several extracurricular activities. As a parent I am proud to send my children here

My daughter went to the special needs preschool at this school it was wonderful. Her teacher was Ms. Bonnie Welton and I think it really helped her to break out of her shell.

We took our daughter out of due to the repeated problems with school and teacher. She actually lost knowledge instead of gaining. She came from a school in the Mortheast to this program which is only able to be funded for 2 hours a day unless you have a learning disorder. The lack of supervision and teaching led to us giving up on sending her there. We would strongly suggest another kindergarden program with more seasoned teachers if you are looking for results.

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.
