My daughter have had an excellent education so far at Montessori de Santa Cruz charter school.

My children have had an excellent education so far at Montessori de Santa Cruz. The staff and administration have obvious interpersonal skills that are lacking in many other areas of society. My children are thriving academically and socially and I attribute their love of learning and community to the beautiful people that educate them. This is a nurturing environment that strives for excellence! Kudos.

MDSCCS has changed my son's life. He did not integrate well due to Asperger's in the public school. He is a part of his school community, has friends, and is learning! Such a wonderful accomplishment! I am a proud Mom of 3 current students and enthusiastic supporter of MDSCCS.

We could not be happier with the preshool at Montessori de Santa Cruz. Our daughter is thriving and wants to go to school everyday. The teachers are wonderful and are very communicative. We can't wait for our son to be old enough to also attend.

Montessori de Santa Cruz Charter School and Preschool offers a great Montessori education. The staff is top-notch and the school is well-established. I am proud to know many students that have attended MdSC and they are well-rounded individuals that go on to Junior and Senior High School and they perform very well. The community of Tubac should be proud of it's charter school.

We had a terrible experience with this school. Unfortunately, the director seems to have no contact with the teachers or students at the school. No accountability/no one steering the ship.

My children attended Montessori de Santa Cruz and are proof of the quality of education is offered by the school. They have a love of learning and are equipped with the skills to succeed in high school. Beyond their academic performance, they have learned the practice of knowing how to be a good student. Their high school teachers have commented on their exceptional study skills. I give credit to the Montessori education they received and the school's focus on building empowered and responsible students. I also appreciate the leadership skills that my children learned. They are unique in their new school as they want to learn and understand that they have a unique skill of thinking independently. The people that they are becoming, is amazing. Although a new school when my children attended, I am grateful to Montessori de Santa for the educational opportunity it provided to my family.

Raising grandchildren, I have had enough of the general public schools. Reading, math, geography, music, arts, gardening, life skills are all excellent, and that is in preschool. Parental involvement exceeds anything I have ever seen in any other public or private school. Children are treated as individuals and our two boys, both taking violin, can't get enough. They love their school and teachers, and are itching to go every morning. They are not limited where they wish to excel, and they do.

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.
