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.

    This school has great athletic teams and small class sizes. Children who are not a member of the town church have a real hard time no matter how good they are in class room or on the field. I think its a great school but they need to leave there religion at home if they are going to work with children.

    This school has a lot more classes than just the basic classes some schools have. All classes are very sophisticated help you get the career you wasn and most all teaches you many of important of fundamentals.

    I am a former graduate of Joseph City High. I have lived in the community most of my life. I have children in school and have had two graduate from here as well. Not only am I a parent but I am also a member of the school board. In reading the responses from parents I was kind of disturbed by the response from Oct. 2002. I think calling our school a 'Mormon Prep School' is not a fair statement at all but I would be glad to hear their concerns. Also I don't feel minorities have a harder time at our school than any where else but again no reasons given for this persons concerns. There has not been a high turnover rate among our administrators the superintendent that just left was here for 7 years and both principals were here for well over the national average. Out of space.

    Great school. Great learning environment. Great teachers who are more than willing to help even after hours. Everyone can be in extracirricular activities (including athletics there are rarely any cuts).

    Mormon Prep School. Dedicated to sports. Minorities have a tough time. School Board (all mormon) will not stand up for the children. Our children now attend another school. Teachers are unhappy. High turnover rate of Superintendents principals and teachers.
