I originally came to Nosotros Academy because I was doing badly at Cholla. At first I was hesitant to enroll because of what I've heard, but it was exactly the opposite. The students that go there are not how people make them out to be. They still want to finish school and graduate just like any other student at another school. If anything, they have a better advantage because they can earn credits faster. I'm one of those student. I'm still attending Nosotros Academy and I'm planning on graduating from here. I got very attached to this school very quickly. I'm getting credits faster and learning more than I would at a regular high school because I don't have any distractions, also because I have many supportive people around me, which brings me to the teachers. The teachers are amazing and very helpful. I especially praise the T.A's because they are intelligent and patient with every student. I'm just so glad I came to Nosotros Academy because if I didn't I don't know if I'd even be in school or be willing to finish. If any student is having academic issues and even social distractions, I highly recommend Nosotros Academy.

I am so glad I switched my girls to this school it is the best thing I could have ever done. Their grades are great and out of trouble. Instead of wanting to drop out they now want to go to college.

This has got to be the #1 school that I have ever been to. It's a quiet and positive environment and I love all the teachers there. They work extremely hard to educate me over the past few months. Thank you Mrs Darcie :)

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.
