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.

    Taylor elementary is an excellent school. I have subbed for them quite a bit. There is a real feeling of concern for each student. Teachers and staff care about each other and about the children they teach. There is a positive attitude at this school. The principal is very easy to work with and sincerely cares about his school and the children who attend. Their test scores are good too!

    This school has a variety of good academic programs. For instance the district's gifted program is served from this campus. TE has a pre-school program for youngsters ages 3-4; a pre-k program for children who are four years of age; a district special needs program for kids who need those services a certified reading specialist who complements the efforts of classroom teachers and a resource program supporting children who need extra assistance. This school has an organized and functioning PTO. The principal is a good sport who allows his hair to be dyed blue every year when the children reach the one million minute reading mark.
