*This school is rated about average based on how its students perform ... More on state tests compared with other schools in Arizona. However, test scores are only one aspect of school quality.

In most states, we show a Summary Rating which is based on multiple measures, including information like college readiness, student progress, advanced coursework, and how well a school is serving students from all racial/ethnic and socioeconomic groups.

Arizona does not have sufficient information for us to generate a Summary Rating, which is why we instead display the school’s Test Score Rating.

Test scores

Find out what state standardized test scores really tell you about a school – and what they don’t.

Worth a deeper look:

Test scores at this school are about the same as the state average, though still below the top-performing schools in the state. Because test scores in some states are so low, many students at this school may not be performing at grade level.


Parent tips

Ask the school what it’s doing to help students who are behind. Understand what on-track learning looks like, and ask the school what it’s doing to accelerate progress for students.
