Vision High School mainly focuses on the preparation of the AIMS testing that all high school students must pass in order to graduate.It also helps students prepare for college by teaching them a variety of subjects so students can decide what subject their best at,and what career they would like to pursue after high school.The school is located in Pima Community College,so students get comfortable with the campus,and feel more welcome to return once they graduate.VHS gave me the option and opportunity to graduate a year early by taking extra courses at the school,as well as some courses at the college.This school is surrounded by great teachers who will work with the students one on one, as long as the student is willing to learn.I definitely recommend this school over any other high school!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.

About the tests


Arizona uses AZ LEARNS Achievement Profiles to indicate schools' overall performance each year. For elementary and middle schools, the profiles are based on current and historical aggregated AIMS results, MAP results and whether or not the school made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP). 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.
