Former student. Horrible school! There is lack of good teachers and counselors, you will not learn anything because the teachers are too busy with their own personal problems.There is an extreme amount of favoritism mostly among the teachers that are related to the students. In Superior you will only get a job if they know you personally or if you are related to them. Horrible principals that don't do anything. Lack of involvement from the administration, and you will be ignored if you have issues, unless like I said you are related or well known. Your child will be harassed of they are a new student! Avoid this school if possible.

Superior High School lacks an involved principal, that will take care of disrupting students, which there seems to be a large amount of in this Jr/High school. Budget cuts have caused many teachers to fill too many positions, and the results of this include ineffectiveness, disruptive students, and lack of control on the parts of the teachers and the invisible principle.

As parent and a teacher, I'm concerned about the turnover in Principals, 9 in 10 years. Are good administrators hard to find? I agree that some of the Principals, and the former Superintendent, were worthless., but the current Principal has raised our ranking from 'Underperforming' to 'Performing' in 2 years, and the School Board has decided not to renew his contract and hire another Principal.... Teacher turnover is 20-30% every year. they don't have these problems at the elementarey school. Something must be wrong at the Jr/Sr High School... discipline and morale are suffering because of this lack of consitence... I wish I knw what to do...

The behavior of the students in this small community is terrible. I fill this makes it difficult for the teachers to want to do their jobs and also make it difficult to create a good learning enviroment.

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 elementary and middle schools, the profiles are based on current and historical aggregated AIMS results, MAP results and whether or not the school made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). 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.
