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.

    Great teachers and they take the time with the kids to make sure they 'get it'!

    I love Show Low Jr High. We have great teachers who are good at what they do and fun to learn from. There are lots of ellectives clubs and sports. There are some behavioral problems but overall it is one of the best schools I've ever attended.

    I see the Junior High as improving 100% this year. My older kids attended there in the past but this current year seems more organized and 'learning friendly'. Most of the teachers seem excited about education and their student's abilities. I am proud now to say that my children go to Show Low Junior High
