One of the lowest ranked schools in the country on multiple levels. Too much attention on athletics and not academics. Undereducated teachers and staff. Almost no after school activities, inadequate funding, limited parental/student involvement.

It is an absolutely amazing feeling to fit in and to have the teachers push you academically . The only issue my family and I are having a problem is with the math department. The math department is just a catastrophe. But other than that, it is a B+ school throughout the navajo reservation. But for me as a student, I honestly the motto says it all. "To provide a quality education for all our students." Once a warrior, always a warrior (:

I absolutely love this school. The staff and environment of the school is amazing. The academics are challenging, the teachers are inspiring, the school spirit it exciting and the security of the school makes me feel safe and welcomed. I love Tuba City High School. I'm proud to be a Warrior and I think this school has greatly improved!

The idea of being tardy three times is eventually one day absent to our childs report, this out rageous. How would the staff feel if they were tardy three times and counted against their time as no pay. I suggest this rule to be changed, ASAP!! It doesn't look good on our child's report. Thank you.

I am very disappointed in the school overall. Only a few teachers like their career choice. Some have just been doing this too long and are fed up with students. I feel upset when my child comes home feeling bad and wants to quit school. The new dean just made matters worse. Don't enroll...

School generally does a poor job of preparing students for real university work. Many of the staff think they are preparing the students well, but they are not. One can tell by just looking at the failure rate of students who try to go on to four year colleges and universities. Most of the graduates go to technical schools, or community colleges, if they pursue any further schooling at all. For a student wanting to go to a four-year college, I would STRONGLY recommend a rigorous summer academic program (like the MS2 program in Andover, MA, or the Summer of Exellence programs at University of Arizona or ASU) starting no later than after the sophomore year--something that goes at least 6 weeks. I think this is needed to prepare the students for college work. The school badly needs to improve its college preparatory work.

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.

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.
