My daughter attended Rancho Viejo for 2 years and went to 7th grade exceeding on the aims in 2 of 3 areas. I truly believe the teachers there really do care about the best interest of our children and want them to be successful. I am proud to say I am a Rancho Viejo parent.

My child has attended Rancho Viejo School since his kindergarten year and is currently attending sixth grade there. He has enjoyed his educational experiences there and has truely gained confidence in himself and his abilities as a student, in my opinion, because of the staff there at Rancho Viejo School. Not only are the teachers and aides wonderful instructors but the staff and administration make participation between parents and teachers a comfortable and productive experience. I highly recommend this school.

Rancho Viejo is really below the standard that should be accepted for our students. My child is learning things that she learned in Kindergarten, in a different school, in First Grade here! Things such as colors, shapes, and days of the week should already be known to these children! Being ESL learners shouldn't be an excuse for the education standard to be lowered for the rest of the children.

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.

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.
