This school is managed very poorly. Staff is very unprofessional. Teachers do not even teach.


Posted March 9, 2013

Its a really good school my kids have been attending since 2011! My Kids will be graduating from this school! The front staff and teachers are great, The IEP staff are really concerned with the kids, and their ability to be more succesful. It does need some Funds, being a new school thats how it starts little by little. My daughter in middle school and son in elementary will be attending this school also Thanks! Mr. Madrid (principal) This is a no student left behind!

The girls' sports staff and program is horrid. It would be nice if they could win a volleyball or softball game. Embarressing coaching! These are still children and need your instruction as well as PRAISE. I've never heard a positive or encouraging remark from the coaches during any games.

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.
