Student Choice High School offers a streamlined learning environment with attentive teachers and a 10-1 Student Teacher Ratio. It's a great place to graduate!

Mr Peterson is the man. This math teacher not only knows his stuff when it comes to math but connects with the students in a way that makes learning the subject much more appealing. Miss Burton <3 sorry to hear your gone but you were the best eng. teacher I could have ever asked for.

This is a great school for people looking to catch up on credits or graduate early. Most of the work is based on computers, you work at your own pace, and it's half day which is great for working or parent students.

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 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.
