I am a new parent to the district. This little school has really impressed me. All teachers a very qualified. I feel my children will be safe when I send them off to school. The office staff ensures that no one is allowed to go to the classrooms with out signing in. I sent my friend to pick up my daughter and they did not allow her to because she was not on their list of contacts. My children are doing well in their work and are learning alot. Mr. England is one of the first principal that really show interest in the students welfare he is always cordial and will to answer any questions.

Solomon is a great school. With the school being small, the students have extra one-on-one time. My son especially needs the extra time. Mrs. Gomez is a great teacher and my son really enjoyed being in her class.

Wonderful school. Teachers are highly qualfied and always willing to give extra help. The Administrator has an open door policy for parents and students. The students feel like they can confide in him if they have a problem.

Average to good school for small size. Could use a better Special Education program. Students could use some extra math help. Fair disapline could be a bit better, but that is hard these days with the laws like they are. If a student doesn't hand in homework, they get after school detention, and parents have to pick them up, which is good if your child hates to do homework. They will do it in detention, and they get tired of serving it. Helps those who habitually do not do their homework to get it done. Most teachers are excellent and take time to help the children individually.

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.
