As required by state and federal law, each spring we administer the AIMS test to all students in the sixth through eighth grades. Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) is a standards-based assessment measuring student proficiency in writing, reading, mathematics, and science. Students will receive a report classifying them in one of four performance levels: exceeds the standard, meets the standard, approaches the standard, or falls far below the standard.

Scholarship Opportunities

There are numerous opportunities for young students to earn scholarships, beginning as early as kindergarten. We have provided a few links to information at the side of this page, but you can also search the web and find the perfect connection to your child's strengths. Be sure to take advantage of less competition at this younger age. Just a few minutes on the internet may lead to thousands of dollars!
