In the 3 years our children have been attending Laguna, it has been great. Our Children like going to school every day. There was minor details during the past school year, and it was taken care of immediately. We think that more parents need to have more involvement in their child's education. Our kids Teacher's this year are Great!!!!!

The teachers are great but they don't have the tools they need to do their jobs properly. Laguna Elementary is also extremely ethnically unbalanced and this is strongly reflected in their policies. I am considering pulling my son after the school year ends and homeschooling him.

I Think That Laguna Elementary School is Deffinatley Considered Below Average. The School Has No Art Program For The Students And I Belive That Creativity Starts As A Child. They Do However Have a Music Program Which Isn't Very Good Either.

Very good school, I really aprove of any Flowing Wells Schools. They strive for academics and provide very good counsling to youngsters with issues. Highly recommend.

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.
