This school has a very caring, knowledgeable staff. The class sizes are small and the administration is very professional and handles all problems with one idea in mind, what is in the best interest of the student(s)..

Saint David schools is rural town living at its best. The community and school work together and provide an environment for learning and life skills. My only concern, which now recently they have been addressing is school safety. The school is semi-open campus, with children everywhere when released from school or for lunch for High School. The school lays on a main travel route, and I worry that they have not considered what could happen.

My daughter has been attending Kindergarten here. I love the small class size and extra attention. One drawback I feel is having only half day kindergarten, with no bus available mid-day. I have met many of the other teachers and aids and feel that all are well qualified and enjoy teaching. I feel one area that can be improved is Safety. Doors are not locked and there are few to no windows to see who is outside the door. From my observation children are allowed to roam freely into the parking lot after school and when going to other buildings. All grades are on the same campus (from HS to Pre-K) with no dividers. This makes me personally uncomfortable. Overall though, I feel that my children will get a wonderful head start in this school.

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.
