This school has been my salvation! I've had 3 kids go here as well as several of their friends and one that stayed with me for a while. My son currently attends and this school is great for him. He's always had trouble in other schools because of the way he learns. This school has done everything possible to accommodate him and it's working! He's doing great now, looks forward to his classes, likes his teachers, etc. Mr. Batista (Principal) is fantastic. He's helped all my kids and took personal interest in them. Mr. Ream has been very helpful in helping my son succeed. The office staff is friendly and helpful. The teachers are the absolute best. They pour all they have into teaching their students. Like every school there's turnover and it's sad to see good ones leave. This school is great!

This school has greatly gone downhill in the past few years. The teachers really genuinely care about the kids, but unfortunately the best teachers are not respected by admin or students and leave for better things.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.

About the tests


Arizona uses AZ LEARNS Achievement Profiles to indicate schools' overall performance each year. 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.
