My child is learns in a different style that the norm, the teachers would not or could not assist instead the school councellor advised me that he may be ADD, which he is not. The environment is not condusive to anything outside the average childs educational need and the school doesn't provide its teachers with aides to assist in its over stuffed classrooms which contributes to both teacher and childs frustration. The teacher of my childs class had 2 kindergarten classes of at least 22 children each.

Communication needs to be improved. The upper grade section needs a lot of work. There are some great teachers and staff there, but then there are some not great ones.

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.
