I was a little disappointed in my daughter's education there. She went from a charter school to this public school and seemed to not do as well academically. It seemed to dumb her down. She was also assaulted by another student three times with no positive results from the principal. I felt patronized and pacified on the whole thing. My daughter is now in counseling and I will not have her go there again.

The staff at this school are as overworked and underpaid as any other, yet they continue to care and are committed to the children of our community. The stick together and work as a team through everything the district and legislature can throw at them. They are a wonderful group of decent people educating the children who are our future. They deserve credit for all they do.

Wright Elementary is a school that lacks parent concern and involvement. The monitors show very little concern for the safety of the children. There are many children that have behavioral problems and are not disciplined properly. Some of the teachers are mean and make learning a difficult for the students.

I have two children attending this school, both in K-1 classes. I am an active parent-volunteer (2 years) and I know and talk to many of the children who attend John B. Wright. The math & science focus is excellent!

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.
