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.

    Without this school I probably wouldn't be graduating on time. the hours are great and the teachers really pay attention to your needs as a student. the school has a safe and clean environment unlike public schools.

    Edge high school is incredible ! The class sizes are small . The teachers spend a lot of individual time with you when needed for school work . Edge high school focuses on the students and whats best for them and there options after high school.

    Individualized instruction. Students can catch up on credit and work at their own pace. Some curriculum is computerized. Few extracurriculars. Little parent involvement. Open entry and open exit. School has been operating for over 10 years.
