The Phoenix School System
Phoenix has more than 300 public schools in 30 school districts, along with nearly 200 private and charter schools. The way the schools are designated and organized is a bit more complicated in the Phoenix area than in most other school districts. It is the legacy of rapid city expansion into other incorporated areas. Many of the existing schools were already in place before they became part of Phoenix. Because of this, some school districts only serve grades K-8 while others only serve grades 9-12, and still others have schools in grades K-12. It can be challenging for parents to discern which school their child will be directed to as he or she advances through the system, and even more difficult to determine what placement would be most beneficial.
No matter which school your child is in, online or in-home tutoring could help him or her maximize academic potential. Private tutors in the Phoenix area can assist students in grades K-12 with any coursework they find challenging and can also help with preparation for exams such as the ISEE, ACT, SAT, AzMERIT, and AIMS Science.
Here's a breakdown of AzMerit proficiency rates in the city. How does your student measure up?
Phoenix Test Scores
The AzMERIT is the statewide achievement test for students in Arizona schools. It assesses reading, writing, and mathematical skills for students in the third grade and above each spring. While students are not required to pass an AzMERIT for graduation, they are required to pass a civics exam prior to graduation. The AIMS Science exam is given to students in grades 4, 8, and in high school in order to ensure students meet federal requirements for science educational gains.
