Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS)

In 2011-2012 Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) was used 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. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona's 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.

    In my opinion i believe that their are plenty of students who careless about school every year. Due to all the other yuma county schools get much more economic support then SLHS (San Luis High School) we do not get new equipment such as for sports classes textbookd or staff. Currently their are around 35 to 40 something students per class its hard to learn in a room who's capacity for students is above the average. For example in one of the classees their are 42 students. Although in slhs their are at least more than 7 students per class that really want to have a great career they are not given the chance and i hope SLHS someday has enough money to hire experienced teachers and the students have more chances on getting a career.

    Yes as the post below states this school is crowded. It has been announced to be 110% well over its capacity with almost 3000 students. There is no plausible way to impede certain students who in fact do not care from enrolling seeing as there is no other alternative. The budget deficit is greater every year. It does lack an auditorium a proper track and more room. The district does make the school a lower priority than the rest because parents have yet to demand better facilities for their children. Nonetheless the school offers great programs for what are reffered to as "college bound" students. AP accelerated and dual credit courses are available to those who wish to challenge themselves academically and plan on attending a university/college. Personally I have found my experience at this school quite fulfilling and worthwhile. I have become what in my opinion is a well-rounded individual (or as well-rounded as one may be at this age); I have not relied solely on what this or any school has had to offer. It has been a combination from both the "outside world" and school. At the end of the day any education is a great education so long as one is willing to learn.

    In my opinion after attending this school for 3 years i believe that their are plenty of students who careless about school every year.

    success at this school is limited. Resources are made available only to those whom the staff believe have an actual potential of graduating. Many are expected to attend the crappy college in Yuma and tell students not to waste their time going somewhere else. Staff are usually underqualified and do not take an interest in their students potential.

    No parent organization. Poor safety procedures of students. Poor community involvement by school or teachers. No challenging academic work for freshmen. No equity in band and sports programs as compared to other Yuma schools. Counselors limit students' academic potential.

    I personally enjoy attending this school since there is so much to do. The staff is great and there are many after school activities. There are great events once in a while that gives this school its unique features.

    There is a lot of student involvement at this school which is a good sign that it works.

    This is not a good school. The curriculm is so watered down that the students graduating for this school are not prepared for the real world. There is almost no parent involement. The stands during an extra-curricular activity is mostly empty. There is a large varity extra-curricular activities and a good chance of playing on varsity.

    there is a low parent involvement program also the extracurricular activities are not realy attractive to students as the quality of academic progams they have many new teachers that need experience. as the aims very low amount of students passed it.

    San Luis High School has a great faculty that is determined to see your youth succeed. The grounds are well maintained and the staff are of the highest quality. This school is attended mostly by hispanic youth but they are openly welcome to other cultures and backgrounds. San Luis High has only been open for two years and has already enjoyed a fine athletics program especially in their ladies soccer. The guys aren't doing too bad either!
