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.

    Mansfeld has just become a STEM Magnet school. This means teachers are creating integrated units focusing on how science technology engineering and math play roles in all disciplines. Students are now being asked to demonstrate their learning via real world projects and problems not just through tests and written essays. In addition Mansfeld has had more student growth than the district average in every grade level and on both reading and math benchmark exams. Our high school credit algebra students performed nearly twice as well as the district average on the March benchmark this year (2013-14). If you are an involved parent with a child who truly wants to excel then Masnfeld is the place for you!

    Our school Mansfeld Magnet Middle School is a family that includes the staff students and their families. We recently had a student pass away and the students organized a "student" get together at a local park to acknowledge honor and share remembrances of that student. Very powerful! We have the benefit of tutoring from the University of Arizona students for our students to help give them a boost with academics. We would appreciate more community and parental involvement.

    Mansfeld Middle School is in a curriculum planning year before implementing a STEM magnet program during the 2014/15 school year. Their planning year has been so productive that the district has adopted many of their tools for curriculum integration to use with our 19 other magnet schools around the district. Once the Curriculum and Instruction Department saw these amazing tools they adopted and modified them to use district-wide in the implementation of the new ELA framework. Mansfeld has proven itself to be a district leader - and they are still in a planning year! As well applications from students outside of Mansfeld's neighborhood have increased by 3x from 2013/14 school year to the 2014/15 school year. Mansfeld is a campus that is full of potential - and ready to shine!

    My school is a great place to explore and learn! We have great teachers who care about the students and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure their success. There are a number of after-school activities and interesting elective offerings. We also have a GATE Flex program and quite a few high school credit classes available for 8th graders.

    Mansfeld is now a STEM Magnet school. The staff is working hard to write new curriculum that is integrated problem-based and rigorous. On top of that the staff still works hard to meet with individual students to ensure that every child has access tot he necessary materials and supports to do their very best. The community rep gets a tremendous number of tutors in to help struggling students make up ground and high achieving students have access to advanced curriculum.

    We chose a public school for our child for him to be exposed to a diverse community with plenty of choices for electives and after school activities. Mansfeld Middle School has provided that for him. The Principal is great and he talks very well of his staff. The teachers are prepared for class and are willing to help the kids that need extra help. They give the kids the grades they earn and if a child works hard to improve themselves they reward them. They really are there to help the kids succeed. We have been very happy with the Mansfeld School and look forward to the next year.

    My son is finishing up his 6th grade year at Mansfeld Middle School and he's enjoyed his first year there very much. He is enrolled in GATE classes and the teachers are excellent. Mansfeld offers a great GATE FLEX program and wonderful electives as well as opportunities with the University of Arizona such as field trips and pen pals with U of A students. Is it perfect? No but the leadership and teachers are dedicated which makes a positive impact on the education and middle school experience. My son is looking forward to another fantastic year for 7th grade.

    Mansfeld Middle School has been a breath of fresh air! The school has teachers administration and support staff who work hard to do the best for the children. The school has implemented many positive reinforcements for the students. The Bulldogger program is fantastic. In these economic times the school struggles to maintain extracurricular activities. Support from the community is needed. Increased parental involvement would make this a much better place for the children to attend.

    mansfeld lacks teachers and administration who truly care about students. Many students fall between the cracks and are passed regardless of need for improved learning. Its disapointing to know children are not being taught at full potential and moving on to the next grade without the basic fundamentals. I asked about summer school opportunities for my child and was advised they had to be "invited." Not enough teachers advocate for the students and most students are heavily stereo-typed and not given fair opportunistic learning environments. Could be a great school but not enough positive enforcement!

    Mansfeld middle school is the worst school in the history of arizona because of horrible discipline they suspend you for everything no matter what unless you have straight a's which is no one

    Continued weak leadership has prevented this school from reaching its true potential.

    Mansfeld is a terrific school. They have plenty of extracurricular activities for students to choose from. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help. They have a uniform policy which I think is great. I am at the school alot helping out and I have never seen a problem with security. I think Mansfeld is one of the best middle schools in Tucson AZ. I will be sad to leave once my child goes onto high school. The only thing I think is a problem is parent involvement. Not enough parents help out once their children enter Jr high. I wish more parents would help out here.

    Atrocious student behavior; teachers not backed by administration in terms of discipline; fractious frustrated faculty (although some teachers are dedicated and professional); high teacher turnover. Avoid.

  • (12 years ago)

    I have not found that the staff or the administration at this school are very helpful. In matters concerning child safety the staff and administration do not seem to care or be concerned. It takes them a very long time to respond to calls. Over all I would not recommend this school to any parent or child.
