I find it funny that the parent who complained about teachers doesn't know how to spell salary. We have a new principal and are working hard to fix problems at the school. We were approved to hire new specialized teachers to help improve scores. Parents who support education will be satisfied with the changes. Parents who view school as a babysitting service will not.

There are principals that need to get into real jobs. Remember... There are people that can, DO and those that can't, Teach. Get active in the school board and have the bum voted out. Put pressure on the school board. After all they were voted in, vote them out ! After all, you the tax payer is paying his big saery. Not many people get active in school board elections. You would be surprised how many friends you can get on your side.

My child attended Tuba City Junior High School for one year. I was not satisfied with his educational learning experiences. The Tuba City Junior High Principal needs to move on, and keep moving. I am sorry, but after a year of my child attending Tuba City Junior High, I removed my child from the district and enrolled him at another school to get a better education. I feel like my child and I wasted a whole precious year of valuable education.

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.
