Ana Lawrence Intermediate School is located just north of the Yaqui Tribe's Casino del Sol on Jeffry. The school is responsible for teaching the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades to the half Yaqui/half Mexican student population. Test scores do not reflect the intelligence and talent of these students and their teachers who have three student produced books on the topics of Yaqui lifeways and poetry. Last year I attended a play produced by Jennifer Metzler and her third grade students, which told the story Navajo Weaving. It was the most touching play I have ever seen and was accompanied by music. Additionally, the students are all very talented artists. Completely organic Weaving displays by the children are in the library for your pleasure. Librarian Elda Patrick organized an art project in which the children made a huge map of the United States, which is on display in the lobby.

Ana Lawrence Intermediate School has a lovey folklorico program after school. The children learn traditional mexican dance and perform at school functions. The folklorico is taught by Senora Reyes. The teachers at Lawrence have advanced degrees and are very good teachers. The campus is lovely with 2 large soccer fields and a garden.

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.
