This is probably the best school I have went to I love this school ! It's very hi-tech. The breakfast is delicious. The teachers are amazing. They said going there you'll feel like your in a family. It was true I felt so welcome and loved. I love Pima partnership high school and academy

I am a mother of one a student. I am very happy with this school because my daughter was entering her junior year with low credits and we thought she'd be graduating very late. But thanks to Pima Partnership she is now on task and is graduating with her year.

My neighborhood HATES this school including law enforcement whos hands are tied. This summer when these students were elsewhere was great. We didnt have to clean our alley way of liquor shooter bottles and ciggarette butts. I didn't have to call the city every week to come cover up their graffiti. Now there back and my walls and dumpsters, even my sidewalk is tagged. I asked 12 of them to leave the alley way the other day and I was told "f**k you" . If you want your child to succeed keep them in a school that has some means of control over their students. After numerous complaints they can't even keep them out of an alley way. Even the cops around here despise these kids. Im sure their not all bad but their sure are quite a bit of bad apples in this bunch that give the rest a bad name. Its 11 am and 5 are sitting on my elderly neighbors front steps smoking weed. Zero respect.

It has been almost a year since I made the decision to leave a large school district and join a charter school. I am so glad I did. PPHS is awesome. The students are an inspiration. My colleagues and administrators are some of the hardest working people I know. I am writing this on a Saturday at my campus. If a traditional campus has not worked out for a student I would highly reccommend this one. Small class sizes, dedicated staff and the resources to get the job done.

Can't say much about a school that lets the kids spend the day on Facebook and dating websites! They have some serious management problems.

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.
