my daughters love this school they recently started working on a new middle school building! teachers and students are friendlier than any other school i have been to these staff and students are like a family and the principal is absolutely wonderful and interactive

This is a great school, I was once a student here now my children are attending the same school, even though we no longer live close by. The teachers take time to make sure each and every student is assisted in their needs and is equivilent in pace with other students.

This is a great school. The teachers are excellent and the mathematics program is their specialty. This school consistently is in the news for the academic accomplishments made.

Teachers are fairly good, stuck teaching a sub-standard curriculum.

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.
