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.

    I am unable to rate the school fairly since my step-daughter will just begin the 2013 fall year here in Tucson. However I am concerned with the some of the previous comments made. I hope new Principal Loya can make changes in the right direction for teachers and students alike.

    The reason I'm researching at this website is because I'm looking to transfer my daughter to another school. She is in second grade and has attended Marshall since kindergarten. We have had problems since the beginning when she had four different teachers in her kindergarten year. My daughter does well academically but even participating in the GATE pullout program is not enough for us to keep her at Marshall for another year. She has had run-ins with some pretty troubled students which may be unavoidable these days. What isn't acceptable to my wife and me is the basic lack of academic preparation for anything but reading. I had to teach her how to add and subtract after we finally figured out that she wasn't being taught any logical system (they use some kind of complicated number chart). We're still debating about transferring her to another TUSD school or just going charter--a real disappointment to us as my wife and I are both TUSD grads ourselves.

    This is my daughter's third year at Marshall and she loves it. The teachers are caring and my daughter's learning skills have extremely improved. The class sizes are high but that is anywhere nowadays. She is in third grade this year and has a great group of friends who all get along very well.

    My child was stabbed twice he came home with a bloody injured hand.I received no call home.He wasnt let to go to the nurse.The principal refused to discipline the other child and told me I should move.He showed me and my child all the incidents he did not report saying it would take to much time to report.He admitted to watching bullying and do nothing.State law says every pinch poke pull etc is to be reported.I called law enforcement who felt SO bad for my 7yr old.Took pics of the wounds and the principal is gone! )My son is scared for life.Don't send your child here.The teacher was always screaming when I'd pop in.And my child did nothing to provoke the other except for being cute and the other child didn't that like mine was getting attention from a girl he liked.DON'T SEND YOUR CHILD HERE PLEASE! Keep your baby safe and away.

    Both of my children attended Marshall. It is an excellent school. The teachers are great. They go above and beyond with their students. I couldn't have asked for more! My children loved it there. Both principals throughout the years have been amazing! All in all the teachers and staff work great together focusing on what is best for the students.

    Overall this school seems to be average. The teacher/student ratio is a little high. They do not seem to do any field trips for kindergarten classes. The only support for working parents is the YMCA Fun Factory but it only runs after school. If you need to drop your child off earlier than 7 30 you are out of luck.

    Marshall elentary is an incredibly well run school. The principal Mr. Boyd truly cares about his students and the staff. This creates a successful learning environment where everyone feels welcome and appreciated. I am so pleased that my two sons are attending Marshall and I highly recommend this school to anyone interested.

    This is a great school some past lower grade teachers haven't been as great but teachers of 2003 are great. There is a lot of parent involvement in PTA it is a very safe family friendly school the only thing they need any kind of help with is their extracurricular activities have a great orchestra though some advanced players have made it through to the honors orchestra this is an outstanding school I would recommend it to anyone.
