Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS)

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.

    This is the worse school I have ever had to deal with. I had to take care of my nephews because the school called CPS on my sister because his teacher coaxed him into telling him that his mother hurt him. He was in kindergarten I had to deal with a child bullying my nephew and the principal could have cared less. I would never send my own child to that school. They were taken out and put into Whitman elementry school and they are doing wonderfully there.

    My daughters transferred into Field last year as 3rd and 5th Graders. The teachers faculty and students made them feel very welcome. They both excelled last year and are doing well in their classes now. We have been very pleased with the curriculum educators extra curricular activities and PTO. We are moving soon and are trying desperately to stay in the boundaries... Kids don't want to change schools!!

    My daughter has gone to this school since early kindergarten she is now finishing 5th grade. I have had a great experience with this school the Title 1 is an issue but with funding issues I can understand. Her teachers have been great had a some issues at times. As far as this school being in a poorer area that is far from the truth it may be an older neighborhood but home values usually are pretty high and I definately believe that it is not 50% hispanic. We also have to remember about open enrollement anyone can go to this school.

    My daughter has gone to this school for 2 yrs now and she loves it. Mrs. Yoder (2nd grade teacher) has really been great for my daughter and updates me frequently on how her day was. The teachers/staff are always very friendly and there to help. They do focus a lot on being a Title 1 school which I don't think is something to boast about. I only wish they challenged the kids a little more academically; but I think that is partially because the school is in a poorer area and has close to a 50% Hispanic population where a lot of the kids/parents don t speak English.

    I am a single parent of two young boys who went to Field Elementary. I am so proud that my boys excelled in academics and developed well socially. JB and Paul admired their teachers and principal and have wonderful circle of friends and classmates. The entire management and staff of this particular elementary school in Mesa is exceptional. The teachers are are always there and ready to discuss resolve and help whatever problem my kids encountered. JB is at Poston High next door and Paul will be joining him very soon. Both said they have a great experience with Field and I as a parent is proud and thankful for this great elementary school.

    My son is now in 5th grade and has been attending Field since kindergaten. Field is not our home school but I was able to get a boundry exception. I loved this school until about 2 years ago. The principal is more concerned about funding than the students education and well being. Zero tolerance for bullying is not enforced at all! Parent communication is non exsistant and most of the learning has been done at home while doing 1-2 hrs of homework per night. This used to be a great school not so any more!

    I have found Field to be a great foundation builder to my son's education. The ELP program is excellent and a guarantee for success. My son enjoyed all of his teachers and they have all supported my son in his learning. They have never passed him over and have acknowleged his skills and truly showed concern for his best interests. I defintely recommend this school.

    Field Elementary is a good school. The principal and staff are wonderful. The school could use more state funding for classes and extra activities.

    For the most part this is a pretty good school. However with the new AIMS material I have noticed that my children are no longer being taught relevant material. However this is no fault of the school itself but rather the State.

    The teaching quality has gone down in the last 4 years. My oldest student left kindergarten with a great teaching. My youngest left kindergarten behind due to reqires material not being covered and taught.

    I found it to be a wonderful school. My son went there up until 5th grade and I have a daughter who went up to 2nd grade. Parent involvement is very high. Lots of attendance at events. Music program is excellent. Great band teacher. Great principal. Lots of extracurricular activities. We just moved out of the area.

    Academic programs are decent the availability of extracurricular activities leaves something to be desired. The level ofparent involvement is limited.

    My son spent two years at this school. Both teachers were very poor in academics and focused mainly on art projects. Each year the teacher was willing to fail at least half of her class and retain them for a second year in each level. The teachers at field and the administration don't care about individual achievement or follow the proprosed curriculum. When students are having difficulties in any area it is up to the parents to take on the role of teacher because there is no other willing participant at this school that is available to help the children. Security at this school is very poor due to the open layout of the buildings and lack of supervison children could leave school with numerous adults without being monitored. Although this school is in a great neighborhood and has very supportive families of the students avoid it at all costs.

    I feel this school does not meet my childs educationl needs. They do not challenge my child and he is bored at this school. They offer no advance placement until third grade. That is a long time for a child to be held back and stuck with kids that are slow learners. Just because this state beleives that no children should be left behind does not meen that all children should taught at the same level. There needs to be a balance and this is not happening at this school. Advanced children are paying the price. If you have an advanced learner in K-2 grade then this is not the school for them. They have an excellent advance program for 3rd-6th grade but that is a long way to wait for a good education.

    Field is a great school going forward to meet the needs of all their students.

    I have had too many problems with bad behavior and bad attitudes in this school pricipals teachers AND students being allowed to behave badly. Too much time is spent pulling children out of class to discuss bad behavior. Get control of the situation however the experts say but this school is reeling out of control with stinky attitudes.

  • (12 years ago)

    Had trouble twice this year with the school reporting my child as unexcused absent. Once my 6 yr old daughter was in the classroom the entire time. This was very distressing to me thinking that my daughter wandered away or was grabbed at school. Second my child had been reported absent by me but they called the house looking her for.
